Before I was a mom
« on: December 13, 2009, 12:50:01 am »

Got this one from a friend of mine and I thought it would be nice to share it with other mommies too.. here it goes:

Quote
Before I was a Mom – I made and ate hot meals. I had unstained clothing. I had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was a Mom – 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 Mom – 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, wet on, spit on, chewed on, or pinched by tiny fingers.

Before I was a Mom – I had complete control over my thoughts, my body, my mind. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom – 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 Mom – 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 could not 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

Before I was a Mom – I had never gotten up every ten minutes, in the middle of the night, to make sure that all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderfulness, 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 only think of buying stuff for myself, never thought that now we spend our money for our baby and still very happy even I haven't bought anything for me  :) :) :)

well i'm a dad so...

before i was a dad i:
- partied hard
- did a lot of bad things
- was selfish
- cared only for myself and those close to me. other people i couldn't care any less.
- a lot worse than who i am now

happy to say that i've changed. i do everything for my family. i help those i can. stopped drinking a lot and other vices. became more patient. found God. i'm not perfect pero at least alam ko na i'm trying to be the best person i can be. i don't ever want to stop trying. i can't. hindi ko na yata kaya bumalik sa dati kong buhay. kung kaya man ayaw ko na. i see no benefit going back to that old lifestyle.

^totally agree! Before ang aarte sa pagkain, may diyeta pang nalalaman, pero nang maging nanay na, ay pqkialam niyo ba! Hahaha! Sa anak ko naman yun, tira ng anak ko yun, galing naman sa akin yung kumain nun bat ba mag-aarte-arte di ba? :D minsan nakakaengkwentro ako ng mga nanay na ang selan to da max! Tira ng anak nila pinandidirihan, parang hindi mga nanay no? Ewan ko, para saken parang hindi sila ganun kaattached sa anak nila. :/

Before I was a mom, I could care less about children.  Now, a child is the center of my life. 

Just want to share as well my blog about how good God is.
