For the Moms ~ The Mom Song

I've been a Mom for 5 1/2  years now.  I began motherhood a little bit later in life at age 37 and  I am so glad I waited and so fortunate to have two wonderful, healthy, busy, funny children.  They've changed my life for the better and keep me on my toes, that's for sure. I wouldn't change it for the world. 

This is the day to celebrate all Mothers.  My kids are fortunate to have two sets of grandparents and two sets of great grandparents to share their lives with, something I did not have. Thanks, Mom for always being there and for giving yourself, unselfishly to anything I seem to ask of you.  Thank you Annette for being there, being such a big part of my children's lives and helping in all the ways you have.  I only look forward to the journey life takes me with my family.

Before I was a Mom

Before I was a Mom -
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed. I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was a Mom -
I cleaned my house each day. I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never been puked on - Pooped on - Spit on - Chewed on, or Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held down a screaming child so that doctors could do tests...or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life
so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known The warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

A mom's work is never done. Now that all of us moms have had a day off, I guess we'll have to go back to this again tomorrow...........
