Before I was a mom

Before I was a mom:

I was selfish. I was a teenager and I loved to hang out with my friends. I didn’t understand how my heart could love somebody so much. I didn’t understand the meaning of sleep. I was preoccupied with staying up all night with friends. I didn’t understand how blessed I
truly was. I didn’t understand that god really does love me. I didn’t realize how important and sacred spending time with your significant other could be. I didn’t understand to cherish every moment you have.



Before I was a mom:

Time moved slowly. I felt like the seasons would drag. Now I feel like I’m trying to remember yesterday and pause time to slow my daughter from growing up.

I was worried about wearing a new outfit everyday and the new
shoes that everybody was wearing. Now I only worry about my daughter and making sure she has what she needs. I’d rather wear the same outfit three times in a week as long as it meant a smile is on my daughters face!



Before I was a mom:

Dirty diapers, boogers, and throw-up were not a part of my daily vocabulary. I had no idea how important a shower was until I had a child opening the door asking to join. I didn’t know
how important even using the bathroom alone could be!

I didn’t know what it was like to cater to a sick child. I didn’t know the fear you have when something happens to your child. I didn’t appreciate my parents the way I do now. I didn’t realize how enjoyable life really is, and I lacked the will power to achieve my goals.


Before I was a mom:

I didn’t know the words to every kid song and television show. I didn’t care about what was the best bottle or diaper was to use. I didn’t fear the dosage on a medicine bottle. I didn’t understand the meaning of love.

I didn’t know the joys of being a mom until god blessed me with my beautiful little girl. 

Now, I am a mom, and now all of these have transformed and turned me into the woman I am today.

I appreciate every moment of life, every laugh, smile, and silly joke I receive from my daughter. I appreciate sleep when I have it and even stressful situations. I know that at the end of the day no matter what I have stumbled upon I am sleeping with a smile. God blessed me and I cant thank him enough. My daughter made me grow up and she has made me the independent woman I am today. I am thankful for all that I have been taught and am eager to learn more from this precious little seven-year old!
