Throw Back Thursday: Cats and Kids Edition

I shared my testimony on Tuesday and I've sat down to write out my experience so many times, only to write, delete, write, delete and then write and delete some more. There is so much going on in my heart that I'd like to share, but for some reason, the words just won't flow. So, I'm sharing some embarrassing photos instead and linking up with The Mom Creative today for her first ever Throw Back Thursday Stories.

The kids laughed with me (or at me?) as we looked through an old photo album today.
 "Mom! You look so strange!"
 "Oh yes, I know sweetie, just look at my hair! Why didn't anyone help me with it?"

One thing seems to be a common theme in almost every single picture of my childhood---I was either carrying a baby under my arm or some sort of animal, which was usually a cat. It's almost disturbing how many cat pictures there are, but I'm resting in the fact that I'm not really a big cat person now (we don't even have one), so I'm not too worried that I'll grow to be that old lady with 100 cats. The cats were fun, but I think I've been set free from that.

See what I mean?

I've got a tan and a baby.
Cats, in clothes and ....a mullet?
 Cats. Not one, but two of them and I was feeding one a bottle.
 Again, two of them.

With a baby, an upside down baby. Thankfully, I got that part figured out. 
With a cat, that was trying to get away, but of course, I wasn't having that. Stay, kitty kitty.
 With bunnies this time. 3 of them. More is always better, apparently.
 With a scary doll, but that wasn't phasing me.
 Practicing some Mama skills.
 Cat and crazy hair.
Practicing keeping a baby warm enough apparently.
 And just one more with a baby.....'cuz that's what I did.


  1. Oh my goodness!! Your kiddos look JUST like you!!

  2. What fun memories! I have plenty of my own childhood photos that make me wonder how in the world we thought certain hairstyles and clothing were cool. ;)

  3. You've clearly got some sort of hyper-active nurturing genes going on there. :) Perhaps you were destined for motherhood. I fear in years to come my children may well be looking back at many photos wondering why something wasn't done about their wild hair. :)

  4. Nice to meet you via #TBTStories.:) Thanks for stopping over.:)


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
