Being a mom

I går var vi på sykehuset med endre for å ta en ny allergi test.
Ennå er han allergisk for egg og melk, og testen ga utslag
på hasselnøtter og hund også....
Så det er ikke annet å gjøre enn å håpe at han vokser
av seg melkeallergien med årene.

Diktet under fant jeg her.
Sier vel det meste om det å være mamma syns jeg!
Akkurat nå sitter jeg og er veldig spent på å få telefon
fra samboern. Han er nemlig med Eirin på førskolen.
Hun var bare kjempespent og gleda seg veldig,
mens jeg sitter her hjemme og er nervøs for oss begge ;)

Yesterday was spent at the hospital.
Endre was tested for his allergy again, and he is still
allergic to egg and milk.
And he also react to hazelnuts and dog....
So we just have to hope that he'll at least
loose his milk allergy as he grow up.

The poem below did I find here.
Says the most about being a mom I think!
Just now I'm waiting to get a phonecall from hubby.
He's with Eirin at preschool today.
She was so excited and happy to go,
while I'm sitting here being nervous for the both of us ;)

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
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.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so 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 her 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 and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom.
