2 posts today...

WOW 2 posts in one day...its friday so what the heck!!

Before we were a Mom and Dad
We never tripped over toys Or forgot words to a lullaby.
We didn't worry whether or not our plants were poisonous.
We never thought about immunizations.

Before we were a Mom and Dad,
We had never been
puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
We had complete control of our minds and thoughts.
We slept all night.

Before we were a Mom and Dad
We never held down a screaming child So doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
We never looked into teary eyes and cried.
We never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
We never sat up late hours at night
Watching a baby sleep.

Before We were a Mom and Dad
We never held a sleeping baby just because
We didn't want to put her down.
We never felt our hearts break into a million pieces
When we couldn't stop the hurt.
We never knew that something so small
Could affect our lives so much.
we never knew that we could love someone so much.
We never knew we would love being a Mom or Dad

Before we were a Mom and Dad
We didn't know the feeling of
Having our heart outside our body.
We didn't know how special it could feel
To feed a hungry baby.
We didn't know that bond
Between a mother and Father and their child.
We didn't know that something so small
Could make us feel so important and happy.
Before we were a Mom and Dad
We had never gotten up in the middle of the night
Every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
We had never known the warmth,The joy,The love,The heartache,The wonderment
Or the satisfaction of being Parents
We didn't know we were capable of feeling so much, Before we were a Mom and Dad.

Just something I found online that made me smile :)

Isn't a new baby just amazing?? Sometimes you think that you couldn't possibly put into words, everything that you are feeling and all that you are experiencing...and then you read something like this! Having a baby is an incredulous, magical journey filled with joyous rewards and wonderment! Enjoy the ride! Babies grow up all too quickly, as you did. You will always be the sunshine of my life and I am so very proud of you, Christie! It's no surprise to me that you are a fantastic Mom! I send my love to my favorite Harris family...and kisses (LOTS of kisses!) to our little angel, Abby! Our family is even better now that you are here! Love forever & always, Mom xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
