Mother Of The Year Award

Mother Of The Year Award - Behind The Awkwardness

“Mother of the Year award. Not only is my daughter faceplanting in the back there, my son is standing on top of our broken gate. No one was hurt in this awkward family moment.”

A Mighty Wind

A Mighty Wind - Behind The Awkwardness

It was crazy windy and this was the only day to take our yearly Christmas pictures that fit our busy schedule. My husband is trying to hold our 1 year old as he’s wiggling around kicking his legs and knocking our middle child in the head causing him to scream. I am trying to keep calm while I’m holding him with a half smile on my face. While our oldest son is waiting patiently for our family photographer  to say, ‘Cheese!’ Needless to say, this picture did make it on the Christmas card and everyone loved it!

Welcome To Arkansas - Behind The Awkwardness

“During a road trip from Kansas to Florida in 1987, this was my standard pose for all state welcome signs. None more appropriate than Arkansas.”

Living In The Pastels

Living In The Pastels - Behind The Awkwardness

“We actually were dressed like this regularly. Pastels were an everyday spring wardrobe necessity. Mom actually put a bowl on our heads to cut our hair for these pics.”

Fanny Pack

Fanny Pack - Behind The Awkwardness

“Me circa 1993, age 11: Fedora, check. Haircut by mom, check. Oversize ‘SuperCuts’ fanny-pack, check. Star Trek keychain on display, check. Unfounded confidence that I looked awesome, check. I wish I knew where I got that fanny-pack – I never visited a SuperCuts (or any other haircut place) when I was a kid. I do distinctly remember being SO EXCITED to have a fanny-pack large enough to hold a decently-sized paperback book, snacks, and god knows what else.”

American Revolution

American Revolution - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is our ONLY professional family photo circa 1980. It was a fundraiser through my school. My mother made me wear my marching band outfit. It was humiliating and not only is the picture forever, it was witnessed by my entire grade school. (I love the pic now though!)”

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly)

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly) - Behind The Awkwardness

“Have you ever had that horrible recurring dream where you are trick-or-treating but forgot to wear pants? In honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I present this classic photo of me and my brother on Halloween, 1978. The joy of this photo is in the details. My brother’s little hand sticking out the top to try to hold the box up… My lack of pants (though I *am* wearing tights, I swear)… Couldn’t he have had a little less cardboard and given some to me? Also note that we needed to (incorrectly) label ourselves since no one knew what we were supposed to be — I wonder why. Sigh.”
