Before I was a Daa
never tripped over toys or forgot the words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
never thought about immunisations.
Before I was a Dad had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
had complete control of my mind and thoughts.
Before I was a Dad never held down a screaming child so doctors can give shots.
never looked into teary eyes and cried with them.
never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Dad never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.
never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
never knew something so small could affect my life so much.
never knew I could love someone so much.
never knew I would love being a Dad so much.
