10-Rep Learning ~ Teague's Tech Treks

Learning Technology & Tech Observations by Dr. Helen Teague



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
I never tripped over toys
I never forgot words of lullabies.Before I was a Mom
I didn’t worry if my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.Before I was a Mom
I had never been spit on
Chewed on
Or pinched by tiny fingersBefore I was a Mom
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I was never gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
I never woke up every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay

Before I was a Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put it down.
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.

The joy
The love
The heartache
The wonder
Or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

    I think you have it right..heartache, wonder, satisfaction.
    Even when they are grown and not under your wing anymore, you wonder how they made it despite all your mistakes and are happy that they did.
