Before I was a mom

Stepherz did a great post about this and so.... I copied her. ;)

Before I was a mom I never had an infection under my thumb nail because a piece of dry boogar I was scraping off the wall got wedged under it. (True story and it hurts really bad, just for the record...)

Before I was a mom I had never been awoken from a deep sleep because some one stuck their little finger in my open mouth.

Before I was a mom I had never apprecitated my flat, unscarred stomach. I had a pretty stomach. I never thought anything of it. I should have taken a picture...

Before I was a mom I'd never touched any other human's poop, pee or puke. Now it happens too often for me to want to talk about.

Before I was a mom I never had to remember what anyone else was wearing so I could tell the workers at Walmart during a Code Adam. (Oh, why did I dress him in that today??)

Before I was a mom I never quoted Disney movies or Spongebob. (Ok, that's a lie.)

Before I was a mom I never realized how crappy you feel after giving birth! (I'm so sorry Mom!! I should have been more helpful.)

Before I was a mom I was never very assertive. Now, "if you mess with the bull you get the horns. Ya know what I'm sayin??" (Some Kind of Wonderful)

Before I was a mom I didn't like to share. In Texas my sister was commenting on how I let everyone drink out of my drink. I've learned that apparently it's never really my drink to begin with...

Before I was a mom I talked about other kids dressed in cowboy boots and swim shorts. Now that's my kid dressed as a fireman at the dentist office.

Before I was a mom I never knew I could love so much. I love my kiddos!! I can't wait until July 12 when all 7 of them are in our home. :)

Love love love this post! Sooooo cute! I don't know if I could ever clean up my kids barf...I think I may die. My dad naver could clean ours up, my mom always had to do it. When I turned 10 my mom said, "if you don't makie it to the toilet, you clean it yourself" After that, I never missed making it to the toilet haha.

Before I was a mom......I never knew what cracked nipples felt like.

Before I was a mom......I was embarrassed to buy Cocoa Pebbles cereal for myself. I'm not anymore because people assume it's for my kids. How wrong people can be.

Very cute post!! There are so many things that I never realized about being a mom until I was one! Makes me feel bad for being such a jerk sometimes to my own mom.

I love your list! Ditto on the drink sharing. Bella like to backwash, so my drink becomes solely her drink. I can deal with poop on my hands, but somehow I can't deal with backwash.

I'm so sorry about your fingy! I was scraping dried mac-n-cheese off of the table one day, my finger slipped and I cut myself BAD on the dried noodle. I couldn't believe how much blood could come from a dang elbow noodle! Ugghh.

You are such a cool mom! I love this post. I can relate with the "mess with the bull you get the horns".

But, I felt strangely incredible and strong after giving birth. It's breastfeeding that kills me.

ps - I can never remember what my kids are wearing, and I occasionally have moments of fear/guilt that I won't be able to describe them to the friendly policeman...
