今天收到一位剛當上媽媽兩個月的前同事的轉寄信…我通常不會轉寄別人給我的轉寄信. 但是這篇看得我淚水在眼框裡打轉…我想分享給大家. 相信你會感受到.

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.
And never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was Mom I cleaned my house each day.
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies.

Before I was a Mom 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, spit on, peed on, or pinched by tiny fingers.
Before I was a Mom I had complete control of my mind, my thoughts, my body and all my feelings.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so that 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 it 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.

Before I was a Mom I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was OK.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

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

牛把拔現在早上在全家人梳洗準備上班上學前, 喜歡放Pandora.com. 這是個很酷的網站, 妳可以輸入自己喜歡的歌或歌手名成立一個"頻道", 然後它就會撥類似的音樂. 像牛牛有成立一個 1234  (by Feist)的頻道, Pandora就找出了很多類似soft rock的小品音樂, 因為有幾首歌總是重複地撥放, 久而久之, 副歌的部分小幫浦也能跟著亨幾個字. 例如:

Be OK by Ingrid Michaelson

我喜歡這句話 “I am a gallery of broken hearts" 😉

On the Radio by Regina Spektor

小朋友喜歡哼 “on the radio, oh oh."

I’m Yours  by Jason Mraz

因為牛牛有從itune買有這首歌, 坐在車上小朋友常會要求要聽 “I’m yours"

另外, 我們常給小幫浦聽1234 by Feist 的芝麻街版本

牛牛有買Feist原本的1234版本, 所以小姐在車上時也會要求聽 “counting song."

至於兒歌呢, 小朋友前陣子最愛Wheels on the Bus. 現在大概在學校唱的歌比較多了, 花樣也多了, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Itsy Bitsy Spider, 和It’s Raining It’s Pouring, 是她最近在家裡會唱個幾句的歌. 喔, 還有abc, 因為我給她清鼻子的時候都會一邊清一邊唱這首歌. 以及Happy Birthday算是她會唱最完整的歌 (阿是因為只有一句嘛 XD)

這麼說起來, 都是英文歌嘞. 媽咪真要給她惡補些中文兒歌, 再不然學個周叔叔的"聽媽媽的話"好了. 哈哈哈.

Thank you for putting a smile on my face everyday.

二月的第一天, 當大家驚呼怎麼一下子一月就過去時, 也是我們的結婚紀念日.

七年了, 癢倒是沒有. 可是邁入有小孩的第三年, 真的是對兩個人耐性的大考驗… 我的心得, 從早上斷斷絮絮地寫了一堆, 還沒完成. 大概是坐了一天的冷氣間, 現在頭又痛又昏, 就連吃了最愛的Koba Tofu House熱呼呼的豆腐鍋和照燒雞, 還是沒好轉.

先簡單地在這裡跟另一半說, 週年快樂.

牛牛的愛就像是Jason Mraz的歌"I’m Yours"輕柔又愉快。我的愛, 就像Lady Gaga 的"Paparazzi"一樣,熱情又霸道. 😉

“Promise I will be kind, but I won’t stop until that boy is mine."
