    That’s what happens when you are the Red Headed Step-Child :-)

  4. Denise says:

    I am scrolling through these photos while at work, and getting a mild chuckle until I came to this one! I have been laughing for five minutes, tears rolling down my face. People are starting to look at me, but I don’t care. This is the best pic ever!

  9. Ras Maga says:

    I haven’t laughed so hard or so long in such a long time, even the comments took me down memory lane. This pic has made my week the best week ever. lol

  10. HDD says:

    Very good…OK!

  11. Giggling says:

    This is more a spontaneous picture. While funny… does it really belong?

  12. customcartoons says:

    This guy looks like he gets every other weekend with these two, and he tells people, “Hey, I take CARE of my kids! Well, I don’t see em a lot, but y’know…”

  13. katierave says:

    I think I can tell which on is his favorite…

  14. KCKelly says:

    Bob Ross was just so distracted by some happy trees. And some happy clouds. And some happy grass…..

    • Karla says:

      BEST ONE YET! He sure looks like Bob Ross of picture-painting fame. So far, no one mentioned the fact that someone still snapped a picture EVEN though the baby was falling! Why? Who could stand by & do that?

      • shutter speed says:

        Children, especially small ones, tend to fall very fast ;)

        Camera shutters are also very fast. It’s most likely that no one was just standing by waiting for the perfect mid-air-fall shot of the child.

  15. Soquel says:

    First picture i actually Lol’d at.. (the others just made me laugh in my mind.)lol (<<in my mind)

  16. Prince Sebastian says:

    Desperate times calls for desperate measures when you’re not in the spotlight for two minutes..

  17. Dan says:

    Playing favorites with your kids is never a good idea!

  18. karoline says:

    I cracked up when I discovered the baby falling of the swing. I didn’t notidiced it at the first.

  19. Rettiset says:

    This is the “how to develop lifelong trust issues” in your children…..lol

  20. michelle says:

  22. Annie says:

  23. Jessi says:

  24. Caselli says:

    You said you’d always be there for meeeeee!

  25. femfacalif says:

    Notice the perfect reflexes of the tiny one falling off of her/his seat. Born with cat-like instincts! lol

  26. zsfg says:

    I about died seeing this photo. best thing i have ever seen in my life!

  27. Sarah says:

    OMG! I can’t stop laughing! It took me a few seconds to notice the poor kid in mid-air. What an awful picture!

  28. tyler says:

    The one falling off the swing is a boy… not a girl. haha

    • Ryane says:

      If that’s a boy then he probably got back on the swing and did it again and again and again just for the sake of falling and hearing the people around him gasp! LOL

  29. Kate C. says:

    Um…also…the little girl that is NOT falling off the swing…is wearing the jumpsuit that the Susie Scribble doll from the 1980′s came in … the exact jumpsuit.

  30. Jeff says:

    The kid at left learned a valuable lesson: Gravity. It’s not just a good idea. It’s the law.

  31. Kim says:

    I’ve never laughed so hard at a pic on here!

  32. Stuart says:

    That is what you get when you hire an out of work Pro Wrestler as a nanny.

  33. Eric says:

    The bad stuff always happens on dad’s (or Grand dad’s) watch. Always.

  34. Harry says:

    One of the funnier things, is the ad that came up for me on this page is for swing sets, this can be their new ad…showing how safe even for a baby and Mt. Man who wonders into your backyard.

  35. twinsmom says:

    I was shocked at 1st, but realized it’s a doll – still a hysterical photo -

  36. Gavin Veasey says:

    Don’t worry, she absorbed the fall with her face.

  37. John says:

    The joys of being the red headed stepchild.

    • Js says:

      [howling with laughter!!!!!!] My daughter keeps asking why I’m laughing so hard. This comment was fantastic. :) Best I’ve read in awhile. :)

  38. Joanna says:

    I hope this isn’t considered a family photo.

  39. awe, poor little baby!!

  40. bambooska says:

    LMAO!!! I need air!

  41. EB says:

    Even his jump suit didn’t make him quick enough to make the save.

  42. bunny says:

    Who said there were favorites?

  43. Sez Me says:

    Did anyone else gasp when they scrolled down? LOL! I’m like scrolling down…thinking nothing remarkable and then see this kid in mid-air!

  44. Lisa says:

    Okay, still funny. Thought I’d come back and give a look. I even have a similar trauma – I’ve fallen out of a baby swing myself.

  45. Sidekick says:

    At least she had some soft grass to land on, unlike the cement they used under swingsets when I was growing up! What was up with that anyway? Does anyone else remember that?

    • Morgan says:

      What about Merry go Rounds…the self propelled kind? We’d get about 50 kids on one and 10 kids running around the edge to get it going about 200 mph?! Ours was mounted on cement. One time, as I was a runner, hand slipped…I came *flying* off and my skull hit the pavement. That happened with different kids about 20 times a day! Good times. LOL!! :D

      • Kelsey says:

        We had one too! I remember it from 1st grade. In 2nd grade, all the teachers forbid us from playing on it.

        I hated that, since it was my favorite.

      • iLOLd says:

        Kids need to experience science’s most awesome force (centrifigal) and Darwinism (survival of the biggest and meanest) first-hand.

        “Meeeeeeeeemories!!!!! In the corners of my miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiind… Misty, colliding, circling meeeeeeeeeeeeemories!!! Of that infernal Merry-Go-Rooooound…”

        XD

      • william says:

        What about the shinny steel slides. In the summertime they reached an average temp of about 1000 degrees. If you were wearing shorts you could only make it about half way down before the skin would start to burn off.

        • KCKelly says:

          LOLOLOLOLOL!!!! My husband and I were just talking about that the other day!! Remember how you would throw your legs in the air to try to keep your skin off the hot, hot metal? I lost my balance one time doing that and fell over the side, and those suckers were TALL. That would explain a lot about me as an adult, though….. ;o)

      • Diane Harmon says:

        YES Morgan…I do remember those merry-go-rounds. Times like you had…and I am sure we all had…weren’t so “merry”….just sayin….LOL

    • Fanboy Wife says:

      We had a tiny one on a cement patch that was only meant for 3 people standing upright. We would get at least six people standing on it with other pushers and see who could hang on the longest. I remember hanging on for dear life almost horizontal in the air when I was really little! I’m surprised I managed to survive my childhood!

      • kelly says:

        The metal slides rocked though. You could actually pick up some serious speed, get launched off the end of the slide and dumped on your butt 3 feet ahead in a big mud puddle. And the merry go rounds…ah the memories. Remember that squeak? That got shorter and shorter as the merry go round got faster and faster until it went away completely when your stomach was in your chest, your cheeks were flapping back and eventually some jack ass (usually me) would stand up in the middle to show how cool they were only to stumble and smack their head on the metal bars!

        • Janice Marie says:

          Those slides used to be TALL too!!! I had a fear of heights and I would run up the ladder as fast as I could in order to not spend anymore time up there than necessary (I never let my fears get in the way of a good time). Of course, when the kid before me took forever to get off the slide, it caused all sorts of inner panic for me.

          Good times indeed.

          BTW – I cracked up for a FULL 10 minutes with this pic. Why do I find action pics of babies falling so gosh-darn hysterical?? And don’t worry, I don’t have kids. LOL

  46. iLOLd says:

    OMG LOOK OUT!!!
    There’s a leprechaun pulling the swingset down!!!!!!

  47. madame ruby says:

    What’s the problem here? That red-headed kid is just showing off her sweet breakdancing moves!

  48. Liz says:

    I guess when they said *”nobody” was injured* they really meant it! Poor kid!
