This weeks challenge from Tara at Sticky Fingers and The Gallery is a really exciting one.

The prompt is Motherhood and all of the pictures will be displayed at CyberMummy!!

This week The Gallery is also sponsored by Photobox who will be giving prizes for the best three pictures!

So here is my take – Motherhood.

I’m not a stay at home 1950’s homemaker.Ā  But I like a lot of those values.

I do own, and use my big rollers, yes.

These are all my own clothes, although not all worn together until now.

We do stand on the porch and wave daddy off when he leaves for work.Ā  But I don’t usually take a colander and wooden spoon with me.

This my picture of Motherhood – this is what it means to me – my son in my arms, a family home, our daily lives, and a nice meal to come home to.

    • Glad you liked it!
      LOL luckily the clothes aren’t that old – the top is from Primark last week, the beads were free on a magazine, the skirt is from Miss Selfridge about 10 years ago and the shoes were from Oxfam but are my favourite black heels!!!
