What I never knew...

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 9:23 PM
Things I never knew about being a mom before I became a mom:

How much bodily fluids and functions would be a part of my every day life, conversation, and concerns.

What real exhaustion was.

How passionate I could be - both positively and negatively.

How many words I would eat, most of them beginning with "I'll never..." or "my child will never..."

How difficult it would be to not give in, especially when they're super cute.

That laundry, cooking, and straightening up would make up the majority of my time.

That I can function fully at a moment's notice after being woken up out of a dead sleep.

That I'd begin to look forward to 3:00 a.m. awakenings because once the child went back to sleep, the house is quiet and I can get things done.


What did you never know?

I never realized the true meaning of love until I had a child. Only then was I given a glimpse of the love my Father in Heaven has for me.

I never know how much compassion I could have for a stranger knowing that his or her mother looked at them and loved them just like I do my own children. That every person is that important to someone else.

I never knew how easy and unfufilling my life was before having a kid.

Nothing like learning in the trenches! On the other hand - how many times it would be afternoon before I got a shower!

I never knew how much I could worry about doing the right thing. It seems like every decision is so important!

I would fix chicken nuggets just to have a pleasant meal where I didn't have to cut up something everyone's plate or have a Green Eggs and Ham discussion.
