Before I was a mom...

Before I was a mom I never knew...

...what it was like to jump out of bed after hearing Thomas stir in the middle of the night.
...what it was like to wake up every three hours for months and still function during the day. much fun playing peek-a-boo with Thomas can be. much you can accomplish before 9am (if Thomas is asleep or being watched by someone else).
...that I would be part of a mommy's group that sings songs to their babies together for 45 minutes each week.
...that I wouldn't mind being puked, spit-up and drooled on.
...that I would become a cheerleader for Thomas - 'Yeah Thomas you picked up your toy!! WooHoo!! (insert high kick and pom-poms here)
...that cleaning my house would become a race.
...that singing nursery rhymes and clapping by hands would be essential to preparing and making meals.
...that I could smile this much. :)

...what unconditional love felt like. Thomas' cry would make me cry. my heart can break when Thomas is in pain. a smile from Thomas melts my heart. much I love being a mom.

Thomas is definitely the most precious thing about life.  Everything has changed for the better.  I could not be happier.

Cheers to all the moms out there (especially mine)! I have so much respect for you.  I never knew how much you truly did for me until I took on this role.  You are amazing! 

Have a great week everyone.
