Mothers Day

I found this on the internet and I thought it would be perfect for today, Mothering Sunday.

Hope everyone out there is hugged by their children or their mother today. x

Before I was a Mum

Before I was a Mum -

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 Mum -

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 Mum -

I had never been puked on - Pooped on - Spit on - Chewed on, or Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and My thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mum -

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 Mum -

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 Mum.

Before I was a Mum -

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.

Before I was a Mum -

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 Mum. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mum

  4. Kellie,

    this is lovely. Thank you so much for sharing it!

    I adore being a mother. I love my 'work', and like my me-time, but being a mother is one of those jobs that you can't describe. It has its ups and downs, sometimes in equal measure, but the ups far outweigh the downs and you can just relish in being Mum.

    Hope you had a good day and that your delightful children looked after you well.

    S xx

  5. Oh, I just read this post and it brought tears to my eyes. Now, I simply want to run and pick up my 20-month-old daughter from kindergarden. Happy Mother's Day from Norway.
