    Looks just like my family, and my daughter Kayla, without the blonde hair. Kayla would want to be the center of attention ALL of the time ( she usually was ), but when the cousins(17 of them) visited with Grandma, Kayla went on full on sulk mode. These things ARE NOT STAGED ! If they were, Mom would not be gray by the time the children graduated High School !!!!!!

    In the south we call that “pitching a fit” and ridicule is one way of letting the fit thrower know it is not an effective means of manipulation and control. Up your game little girl. Spy on them with their friends and blackmail them into being nice to you.

    • hcw80 says:

      Amen, Binkymae, There was no way a child without manners was going to get thier own way. Throw a hissy with a tail on it and someone will jerk a knot in that tail.

      • Halfreck says:

        I’m not sure if many of you have noticed this but she has a broken leg…why were they dragging the poor thing around an amusement park anyways. my guess is she’s in a lot of pain. kids get crabby when they are in pain. this is mean period end of discussion.

  4. Dissenter says:

    Who cares if it was staged? The woman on the left wearing the shorts is HOT! Nice curves and legs!

  5. Carl says:

    They are actually pointing at the giant gator about to swallow her whole. 4,000 calories GO.

  6. mikka says:

    i love this picture!! i remember my younger brother! he has one too many pictures sulking and i feel bad for not coming up with this idea back then! hahahaha!

  7. dawna says:

    I’m glad you explained but doesn’t make me feel any better – just confirms my feelings

  8. Tim says:

    Proving once again: it’s only funny till someone get hurts.

    Then it’s freakin’ hilarious!

  9. Craig says:

    Come on, give’em a break. Sure it looks lame but to them
    it was/is funny. With the story it still looks lame but less so.
    To be fair, most of the pictures are lame but become less lame with
    story lines or captions. KEEP’em comin’.

  10. Cindi says:

    We always try to get a picture of the 9 grandchildren together. It never fails…there is always one kid who refuses to smile and is shown scowling or crying in the picture. Sometimes we have to Photoshop them in the picture if they have run from the room!

  11. Mary says:

    That’s not awkward and it is not funny. It is cruel. There is nothing fun about invalidating your child’s feelings or encouraging her siblings to do the same. This is the stuff that low self esteem is made of. That poor girl.

  12. Jamie says:

    Some people either don’t have kids or never had to put up with a brat. LOVE the pic!

  13. Photo Expert says:

    This picture is clearly photoshopped.

  14. Hexipooh says:

    I vote not staged. It’s awkward because it is funny to laugh at a bratty loved one’s bad behavior–even if it is in hindsight. Of course I am the oldest of 4 siblings.

  15. crystal says:

    Wow. Thank Goodness Tiny Tim wasn’t in this family.

  16. Mary says:

    I’m laughing so hard about the staging conspiracy here. Clearly, if you’ve ever had a crabby, demanding, whining, younger sibling on a family vacation, you get this photo and applaud those pointers. I have 6 siblings…this photo represents most of my childhood! Hahah!

    • Lucy says:

      Seriously…. as the youngest of 4, I can honestly say it was the 2nd oldest in our family that was the pain. I still have emotional scars from her teen years.

  17. Taylor says:

    HAHAH, this is EXACTLY what my childhood was like. I’m the middle child and the only girl, so I went through about a… 17-year period of being the outcast.
    I love this, because at least my torture was never documented!

  18. Mary says:

    I bet everyone who says, “OH, SO MEAN,” never had a younger sibling. Since I am one of 9 children, TRUST ME, there were days when the youngest was being an absolute pain in the a**, meaner than a rabid dog, and acting spoiled as rotten apples…just because s/he couldn’t have their own way. They cried at the least provocation (for just LOOKING at him/her), and acted like the world revolved around just their desires. So to all those older siblings who have dealt with this–isn’t revenge sweet????

    • SWMBO says:

      Hear Hear!!! As an eldest…I “got” ths picture even before the photoger explained it. Total youngest meltdown memorialized. I love it!! The should show it at her rehearsal dinner as well.

      • sarahm says:

        Same here. I’m the oldest of four. This picture cracked me up the second I saw it,
        because I’ve been there SOOOOO many times. Even now, when we’re all in our 20′s,
        we still have moments like this.

  19. Coco says:

    As the oldest in a family of 3 kids, I can attest that the youngest is always a pain in the a**.

    • Kattjake says:

      Yes they are!! Taunting the whiner always makes the other kids feel better..and yes I speak from experience. I am in the middle of 7 kids

  20. darlean says:

    The response to a kid who wasn’t having a fun time on vacation was to laugh at her?

    Molly, wherever you are, yeah, I’m sorry, too. Your mom has a mean streak.

  21. El Kev says:

    What you can’t see is that, just outside of the fame, is that shirtless dude a couple of weeks ago at the lake. Remember the “Bo Derek” photo?

  22. Chris says:

    Wait a second; I know why this picture looked awkward to me. Someone has photoshopped the crossbow out of it at 10 o’clock from the hapless child.

  23. Jaime says:

    My son and I enjoyed this. We get it.

  24. Bonnie says:

    I don’t think it’s staged. My youngest behaved the same way. And I have a lot of pics tp prove it. Sometimes you just have one child that is difficult. I guess I can see the humor in this one because I can relate to it.

  25. Anna Rexia says:

    Those kids are SO out of the will!

  26. Melissa says:

    All sightings of the evil monkey must be reported directly to security………..unless you want an evil, evil monkey living in your closet or under your bed :)

  27. TIM says:

    I can’t wait for tomorrow’s installment.

  28. Daisy says:

    Reminds me of me and my family. ~.~

    At that age I was prone to having terrible days, where nothing went right and I was SO grumpy. I burned a few pics like this in my teenage years. Ahhh, family.

    I’m willing to bet the girl in the pic really is having a terrible day, and they staged the pic around that to try and get her to lighten up. (that’s what my family did >.<) Poor kid.

  29. Carol says:

    Wow, you have to wonder what she did to deserve that. Harsh.

  30. TeeBee says:

    I can just hear the trio simultaneously saying the Nelson Muntz “Ha Ha!”

  31. Rainbow says:

    Does she have a cast on her leg? Poor girl…..

  32. Beca says:

    oooohhh hahaha so mean! But so funny!

  33. CarpoolMom says:

    Wow, I’m a little disappointed here…

  34. springjack says:

    “STOP — in the name of love, before you break your knee…”

    Oh. Sorry. Too late.

  35. Mimo says:

    Not nice! Maybe she is a horrible little brat sister, but the rest of them look like they are budding felons.

    • DeannieDorko says:

      Really? Like it is somehow MY fault that Mom and Dad had to keep trying three more times before they finally had a kid they liked?? Sheesh.

  36. hcw80 says:

    Siblings…those that do not kill us make us stronger. Yes, I am the youngest child in a large family.

  37. ZERO says:

    Shun the non-believers!

    SHhhuuuunnnnN

  38. chilaxx says:

    “Ok kids, I really want to post something on AFP!”

    “Mooomm…”

    “Stop complaining! Maria, sit on the ground. The rest of you point at her.”

    • Carrie says:

      No, it’s probably more like, “Okay, let’s have a nice family picture by the lake, everyone!”
      “No, I don’t want to!”
      “Come on, honey. Just a quick one.”
      “NO!”
      “Listen sister, we spent $5,000 on this Disney vacation, and you’ve been acting like a complete BUTT the entire time. You WILL stand nicely and have your photo taken with the rest of the family!”

      *Click*

      At least that’s what it would sound like in my family. LOL

  39. princessluceval says:

    How awful to stage a picture like that! It looks like Little Girl is really not happy, hurt about something, and the rest of the siblings are ridiculing her hurt for all of eternity. Is Mom taking the picture, with Dad directing?

  40. Sarah says:

    I’m imagining them laughing like Nelson.

  41. LT says:

    I don’t get it.

  42. Stacey says:

    The isn’t Awkward at all. It’s just mean and kinda stupid. I think this is the first time I’ve looked at a picture here and thought to myself, “yeah, that doesn’t belong here AT ALL!”

  43. Allison says:

    Staged and stupid. Maybe if I knew the people in the photo it would be funny. But this one is just lame.

    • Archimer says:

      You can’t say it’s not AWKWARD, though. The fact that the kids on the left are very much posing specifically and the girl on the left is actually quite angry makes for a very strange disconnect.

      This is the first time I’ve seen people on this site go all Photoshop Disasters on a photo, here! “Not a PsD!” / “Not an Awkward Family Photo!”

  44. Mark says:

    it looks staged except the girl sitting down looks like she’s really actually pissed

  45. Leigh says:

    I think it’s more disturbing because it IS staged.

  46. Klondike says:

    yeah… thats not staged

    • Maya B says:

      Not a bit…nooooo!

      • TAMMERA says:

        Hi, I took the picture on our vacation in disney. We absolutely did not stage this. My youngest was being difficutlt for DAYS…and well we had all had enough really. While I feel bad becasue it is a bit mean…and she is 17 now and really pissed at me, but at the time it seemed really appropriate. Just glad they grow up : ) I was trying to get a photo of all 4 of them together but she just would not cooperate and started crying….so I took the photo anyway….
        Poor Molly…. Love her and I am SORRY Molly.

        • Margie says:

          Does Molly have only one leg????

        • Allison says:

          Didn’t you teach your kids not to point?

          • Michelle says:

            I’m right there with you Tammera..as a mother of 4 children, I know how the youngest will make everyone crazy & mean by the time you take a nice picture of your kids..I have one where the youngest is screaming, then sticking out his tounge, then making mean faces..the others pointing & laughing is appropriate!!!!

        • Daisy says:

          Ah! I knew it. XD

          She’s seventeen. She’ll be pissed until she’s 20, then she’ll have an epiphany, and sometime before she’s 25 you might be forgiven. Well, for everything else. Maybe not this. XD

        • El Kev says:

          You know, I’m not a fan of people that come in and try to ruin the fun by actually explaining a picture on this site.

        • dono1 says:

          Even with all the pointing you still failed to get the Loch Ness Monster in the shot? Sheesh.

        • CB says:

          I can sympathize with your story, completely. My brother (also the youngest of our brood), was like this when he was pre-adolescent as well. I have at least one picture of him sulking ridiculously on his birthday, while everyone else around him is smiling, and happy….maybe I should send in it, it’s pretty funny.

          • Lucy says:

            In defense of all the babies of the family – it’s not always us who ruin things. We’re just the convienient scapegoats the older ones use because they know our parents buy into that whole “the youngest is such a brat” business. 98% of the time it wasn’t me. O.k., maybe 78%.

  47. Jennifer says:

    Awww that’s so mean
