Before I was a mom...

Before I was a mom:

I had never been pooped on, spit up on, peed on or drooled on.

Before I was a mom:

I didn't know what sleep deprivation was.


Before I was a mom:

I had more places to get dressed up for than just going to the pediatrician's office.

Before I was a mom:

I wore makeup almost everyday, and only wore pajamas to bed...

Before I was a mom:

I could just pick up and go, and not pack a million things for a diaper bag.

Before I was a mom:

I had a clean house...

Before I was a mom:

I never knew how precious a sleeping baby was.

Before I was a mom:

I never knew how calming a crying child could make you feel like a rock star.

Before I was a mom:

I never knew you could squeal with joy at the sight of your babies smiling

Before I was a mom:

I didn't know you could cry just holding your baby(ies)

Before I was a mom:

I didn't really get the eternal perspective

Before I was a mom:

I never knew you could love 3 babies more than you could love anything else in the world.

To all of the amazing women in my life Happy Mother's day!!
