Behind The Awkwardness

United We Segway

“About a decade ago, my dad had a phase of hyper-intense community involvement. He somehow came up with with the idea of putting a piano on a rented Segway and having me play patriotic tunes while riding in the local 4th of July parade to promote a local politicians election campaign. Predictably, the keyboard idea didn’t pan out, so he just had us bedazzle it in America and call it a day. This was that day.”

Snowballs

“Our youngest daughter was throwing snowballs at my husband on the first warm day we have seen in months. Apparently, forty-five degres and sunshine equals no shoes! I was attempting to take a photo of her tossing a snowball barefoot and captured her hitting the bullseye instead!”

Laser Trolls

“This is my little sister in 4th grade. My mom took us to get our pictures made, and my mom and sister thought it would be a great idea to add the trolls into the mix. As you can see: awkward GOLD!”

Overflow

“My two boys oldest boys were in our new jacuzzi tub, they were approximately 5 and 7 years old. Like all safe and responsible parents we left them alone for awhile. When we came back the whole bathroom was covered in bubbles. They said “It just happened by itself”. There was no shampoo left in the shampoo bottle. My husband and I were trying not to laugh when we were correcting them. My ever so mischievous second son has the ever present “Am I in trouble again?” Look on his face when this picture was taken.”

Holier Than Thou

“My little sister’s first Holy Communion. She was over getting her picture taken and wanted to get out of that dress. We were like, “Just one more in the parking lot!”

Bringing Home Baby

“This is my parents leaving my grandmothers house after staying there for a month after I was born! My mother didn’t believe she actually could take care of me alone, at 28 years old! That’s my grandmom locking the door in the background! Thankfully they turned out to be good parents!”

Bushwhacked

“This is my kindergarten picture I was 5 and my grandmother Ruby loved it. She liked to perm her hair and thought it would be nice on me but every time she tried the curls wouldn’t hold. So the day before school pictures she put the curlers in and made me sleep with them in overnight it was horrible they were pulled so tight it gave me a headache. The next morning she pulled them out and began to brush it out, that’s how it ended up so bushy. I hated the hair but I’m smiling cause my headache was gone and my cousin Shannon who was the same age and grade had the same hair style.”
