Prettiest Mom Meme

Tammy tagged me with this meme and I'm not going to be lazy like I usually am... so, I'm going to post it with pride. Thanks, Tammy, for choosing me for this one!

Just copy the poem and add your name to the bottom of the list underneath the person who tagged you, then tag five pretty moms.

Prettiest 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.

Before I was a Mom
I go everywhere I like without thinking too much.
I didn’t know much about parenting and breastfeeding.
I seldom buy new clothes and other accessories for myself.

Now tag 5 people who you think are special moms. Here’s the first chain of tags:
1. Lovelymummy
2. Pek Imm
3. Momisodes
4. Ling that's me
5. Janicepa
6. AnnieQ
7. Allthingspurple
8. Montessorimum
9. clumsy mommy
10. Sandra
11. KittyCat
12. VivianZ
13. Sting
14. Tammy
15. Petula

Yes, for all those wondering: I typed all the codes all over because I still can't figure out how to do it. Maybe I should get the teenager to do it, I'm sure she'll figure it out in no time.

I'm going to tag Farah, Cheeky, Melonie, Syari and Jaye.
