Flashback Friday...Mummy the First Time

Karin from Cafe Bebe is asking us to delve into our archives again and relive a memory and share the story behind it.  This week I've gone for a photo from 1989, a few months after my first born son came into the world.  I was nineteen years old, fantastically thin and a new mummy to my gorgeous chubby baby Joe.
Motherhood was the thing that saved me.  It put me on the path to here and now.  This photo celebrates mine and Joe's bond. (It also demonstrates my late '80's dress sense!!)  It might be 22 years later, but it feels like yesterday.  I'm so blessed and so glad to be doing it all again now with my last-born son Freddy in my 40's (and thankfully I wear clothes that cover my midriff nowadays!)


  1. I was just 19 when I had my first too! Such a wonderful time! Gorgeous pic! X

  2. Aren't you both so adorable! ;) Thanks so much for a wonderful trip back into your look fab!

    Looking forward to seeing you back next week! ;)


  3. What an absolutely fantastic photo Wendy, I love it. You can clearly see the love you have for Joe in it xxx

  4. I agree that discovering you were pregnant with Joey when you were at an all time low was one of the best things to happen to you - you became alive, you glowed and Joey has turned into an incredible young man.

  5. Picture makes me smile though I don't think you could do that to Joe anymore. Loved you then and I love you now.XX

  6. what a gorgeous photo and you look so trim!! x
