Flashback Friday - 1976 - Can I have some sleep please?

December 1976.

Firstborn darling daughter is 11 months old. Small for her age and behind in her development due to her premature birth. But an absolute little doll in her little blue knit pantsuit with attached white ruffled top.

Second born son is 2 months old. He had only recently come home from the hospital where he remained for six weeks after his premature birth. Darling son rarely slept for more than 30 minutes at a time for the first three months because the poor little guy suffered from colic.

He's probably sleeping in the crib next to the chair where mom and daughter are sitting. Mom, far from being WonderWoman, is exhausted but smiling bravely for the camera.

And I did indeed sew the top I'm wearing. It was Simplicity 7398 released in 1976. Even as an exhausted young mother I kept up on sewing the latest pattern releases!

  1. oh dear! how could you manage all that? Two darling babies requiring both extra care, and still sewing.
    You must have been wonderwoman though.
