Before I was a MOM

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.
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 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 her 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 .

Its been eons...

So it has been so long since I have blogged. I really want to do it on a regular basis but it obviously escapes my mind most of the time.

I have been working in the Elkhart In SSA office for the past month and I am loving the drive. It takes me 10 min to get to work and 10 min to get Owen.

Owen is doing great...he is talking up a storm. Trying to put sentences together..yells..screams..acts two. He is moving up at daycare to the 2 room in a week. LOVELY. I am so excited. He is getting bored with all the little ones. Only thing that makes me nervous is they make them drink out of a sippy. They say he does great..but when I give him a cup at home he coughs and gags on it. Drives me nuts.

We got his first hair cut. I will have Wes email me the pictures so I can post was too cute and he did GREAT.

He had the croup again this year..had to get on a steroid to help him get over it. But it worked and it only lasted for a few days.

Not too much else happening. Will write more later...
