    Oh lord, I remember that swing. I had the same thing but my parents tied it to the tree in my back yard. I don’t remember falling out of it, although if I HAD fallen out, it would certainly explain a lot of things about me today…

  2. Tammy says:

    Think the little one is doing a cartwheel. Poor thing..

  3. Alli says:

    Who’s that man and why’s he trying to steal that baby? LOL!

  4. haha says:

    So now we know what happened to Lindsay Lohan!

  5. Chuck says:

    This is where the trouble began for carrot top

  6. been says:

    It’s her own fault for sliding the guard rail up!!!

  7. tara says:

    Guess grandparents lie when they say they don’t have favorites.

  8. carol says:

    They’re fairly rubbery at that stage, and it’s a darn good thing. LOVE that red hair. Bet she’s a beauty today!

  9. tentoes says:

    Looks like the same lawn that the kid crashed his unicycle on.

  10. liz says:

    My RSS feed had the christmas card with the rifle. i want comments on tHAT!!!

  11. Katie from Boston says:

    I love this picture. (Hopefully the little tot didn’t get hurt!) But does anyone else thinks he looks like that guy who teaches people how to oil paint on TV at weird hours on strange channels? I don’t know his name, but grandpa looks just like him.

  12. that guy says:

    how does one fall out of a swing with a safty bar?

  13. Deidre says:

    Is it wrong that I laughed til I choked when I noticed the kid falling? Best. Photo. Ever.

  14. Snowrider says:

    PLEASE tell me that’s actually the little girl’s doll!

  15. Soze says:

    Look dad! No hands! Ooooooops!

  16. Uh oh. I totally had those overalls.

  17. LoveFromMN says:

    Mid-falls are the best candids ever.

    • Laura says:

      I totally agree. Falls hurt but they are so funny! Poor kid… This is definitely one of my favorite from this side, hands down!

  18. francis james says:

    What’s that behind him? Is it a double garage with no driveway?

  19. Sammy says:

    “Do you hear something grandad?”
    “No dear, just keep focusing on the camera so grandma can get a good shot”
    “But, but..”

  20. chris says:

    What happened to the awesome Christmas card photo that was just here?

  21. VelmaDinkley says:

    And if he’d held on to the one on the left, you just know that the one on the right would have fallen off.

  22. Gina says:

    I dig the “kids getting hurt” theme. Very edgy.

  23. Becky B says:

    So funny! But it looks like the girl isn’t actually falling, she’s got one hand on the ground and the other on the rope. Still, he better watch out.

  24. amy says:

    awesome. I totally did not see little miss ‘about to break an arm’ because I was trying to figure out the hair on this guy. This is rich.

  25. Noneya says:

    Treated like a red-headed stepchild.

  26. Is that a kid or a doll falling out of the swing??

    If it’s the former, then this is the kid’s proof that they were dropped as a baby and its all their sister’s fault. If not, its one giant leap for My Buddy Doll-kind.

  28. Desdes says:

    I was so busy checking out the facial hair it took me a moment to see the kid.

  29. Stacey says:

    omg, it took me a minute to see the other baby falling, I was distracted by the beard and the uncanny family resemblance between child and adult — but poor little one. Not to mention amazing photography!!
    Timing is EVERYTHING!!
    **thanx for the disclaimer**

  30. kp says:

    Damn. If I had kids, I’d stage this photo with every one of them.

  31. Trish says:

    I love his extra firm grip on the girl in blue.

  32. Now we know why women should run the world. And…I’m a guy!

  33. Anne says:

    Some kids will do anything for attention.

  34. Marco Torres says:

    Should have brought his bow staff.

  35. Leonie says:


  36. Alan says:

    This guy is the parent of the previous kid & unicyle….. first Jeremy falls off his unicycle & hurts his doo-daas, now Mandy tips off the swing. He’s NOT having a good day.

  37. Tim S says:

    A little Pam® on the seat of the swing is comedy gold!

  38. Al says:

    Redheaded stepchild…

  39. Kim S. says:

    OMG! I mean…. O M G !!! What a time to click the shutter!!!?!!!?!!

  40. Suzie says:

    OMG…this one made me cringe. So wrong.

  41. R says:

    Is he going to push her off next???

  42. Dot says:

    AFP is becoming AFHV(America’s Funniest Home Videos) in photos instead of videos. Snaps of kids getting hurt, and nut shots. Limit content to those truly funny family portraits, and awkwardness.

  43. Lissa says:

    Photo bomb!

  44. Dilly says:

    Oopsie Daisy!

  45. ida_slaptem says:

    Guess which one is the red-headed stepchild!

  46. chris says:

    The look on grandpa or whoever’s face is like someone just yelled something about the baby falling but he totally didn’t hear what they said.

  47. Paul Metzger says:

    Look to your right! Look to your right!

  48. Des says:

    She was working on her new handstand dismount.

  49. Joey says:

    Took me a minute to even NOTICE the other kid. Another “family classic” photo!

  50. TwistedSista says:

    A baby doing a handstand!
