This is so nice! (Guaranteed smile)

  1. I stumbled across this on the net (source unknown)

    Before I was a Mom 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.
    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 and happy.
    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.
    And before I was a Grandma, I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings more than doubled when you see that little bundle being held by "your baby"...
    Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom or Grandma. I just did.
    And remember that behind every successful mother......
    Is a basket of dirty laundry.
