Before I Was a Mom

Someone shared this poem with a moms group I belong to and I thought I'd share with all of you! ENJOY!

Before I Was a MOM
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 Mom I cleaned my house each day.

I never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies.

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, pooped on, spit on, peed on, or pinched by tiny fingers.

Before I was a Mom I had complete control of my mind, my thoughts, my body and all my feelings.

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 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 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 in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was OK.

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

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

......before I was a Mom.

A New Me!

I have decided to make some new changes for my health this year. Hopefully I can follow through with them. I want to lose weight and get in shape. I am a huge procrastinator and heck I'm lazy! So I am hoping that will change. I bought myself some Boot Camp sessions and I plan to start this next week. I need to secure a sitter for my kids (my Mom, hopefully). I also am following a month plan from Cafe Mom. I will be posting how I am doing on this as well.

I am also attending a Transitions Meetup. I attended my first last night and it was great! I learned so much from the members and I am hoping to get a lot out of this group. I also had my first job interview of this new year. I am really hoping I get it, I really need to work. I will keep you all posted on that as well.

I promised myself I would make some life changes for a new me and for my children as well. I want them to be proud of me. I also want to encourage them to go for what they want. I know I wasn't always there in the past but this is a new year and I plan to be there now. I have so many plans for us now I just need to execute them.

I am also going to "appreciate what I have and want what I have" sometimes I tend to forget that. Oh ya did I mention I want to get back into reading again. I miss it! I bought a new book and I will start reading it today. Yayme!

Thanks for following My Krazy Life!

Sunday Blog Hop!

I joined this Sunday's blog hop. My new year started off great. I spent it with my children and my SO. We barbecued and kicked back. 2010 was a mediocre year. I lost two family members in December, got to visit with my little brother from New York, reconnected with my older brother and his family plus so much more.

This year I plan to get my gift shop off the ground, spent more time with my family, get in shape and lose weight, just live life like there is no tomorrow. Oh did I mention tell everyone that I Love Them as I don't know what the future holds. I also want to pick up reading more as I find myself drifting away from that. I want to make new friends and get out of the house more. Job searching is a must at least part time.

So many plans and I hope I can manage them all in a timely fashion. Just a little tidbit on my krazy life.
