    My daughter sent this to her mother and I just had to share it with all the mom's on the BOC.Hope you enjoy it.
    Before I was a mom:
    I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby!
    I didn't worry weather my plants were poisonous!
    I never thought about immunizations!
    Before I was a mom -I had never been puked on
    Pooped on
    Chewed on
    Peed on
    I had complete controlof my mind and my thoughts!
    I slept all night!
    Before I was a mom!!
    I never held down a screaming child so 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 night watching a baby sleep!
    I never held a sleepng baby just because I didn't want to put them down
    I never feltmy heart breakinto 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 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 my heart outside of my body!
    I didn't know how special it could feel to feed ahungry baby!
    I didn't know that bond between mother and 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 gotton up in the middle of the night every
    10 minutes to make sure all was ok!
    I had never known the warmth,the joy,the love,the heartache
    The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a mom!!
    (I hope all the ladies out there enjoy this. Ithought it was neat our daughter sent this to her MOM!!)

    John,

    That's so sweet... and true! Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

    Sounds like your daughter understands.. I think they usually do once they grow up, especially once they become moms themselves.
    I know your wife musta felt very blessed to get that from her little girl... it's like gettin a hug :lol:

    Thank you, John for this very nice post. I love being a mom. I wouldn't trade one minute of the experiences...the good or the bad. It's great to be reminded like this, of all the wonderful memories of motherhood.

    One thing is for certain, I never knew how powerful love is or that a special kind of love existed that was reserved only for mother and child. The day my daughtrs were born was a day that I felt such a powerful love and feeling of protection overcome me to the point I was simply overwhelmed with it! Thank you for sharing. I am very happy for Barb that she has received such a special gift from her baby girl. I know she treasures it very much! Give her a hug from me!!:smile2:
