    Moms and Grandmas

    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.
    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?

    That is beautiful! Every mom that reads that knows every line there because it has happened to all of us. Nothing,and I mean nothing is better than being a mom. Great post-brought tears to my eyes.
