Throwback Thursday

Baby at 18
I was 18 with a new baby!


For today’s Throwback Thursday we are going back to 1993. Please forgive the blurriness of this photo at it is 21 years old. I did have some nice skin back then though!

I was 18, married, and had just had my first daughter, Meghann Cynthia. We were living in Bakersfield, CA and in the same apartment complex as my ex’s parents and sister. I had no idea how to be mother more than I knew how to be a wife. Thankfully,  my mother in-law helped every single day so much that we say she raised Meghann. I was happy to be a mother but wanted my mom with me.

My daughter is going to have her daughter in November and I am so thankful that she isn’t moving away from me. I wouldn’t be able to stand it. I can now imagine the pain I put my mom through when I moved 3000 miles away from her and took her first grandchild.

What are your memories of your first born?

Happy Throwback Thursday y’all!

  2. I’m glad your daughter is staying close to you! My son is ten, he’s my only one and first born 🙂 Now that he’s getting bigger and more independant I remember more and more of those moments when he was a baby and depended on everything on me.
