Little Miss Sunshine Revisited

Little Miss Sunshine Revisited - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mom loved to get professional photos taken of my siblings and me when we were kids.  I hated it. I learned fairly quickly that if I complained or was fussy they would just keep going and ask me to be still or quiet. However, if I behaved perfectly and just made awful facial expressions the photos would end. This little gem is a product of my silent temper tantrums.”

Oh, and btw, this is Meg now.

Sweaterrific - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was going through old photo albums at my future father in-law’s house to scan childhood images of my fiance for our wedding slideshow. Both my fiance and his father are pretty masculine…played football, served in the military and in law enforcement…but somewhere along the way, my fiance’s former stepmother managed to dress the guys in these terrible outfits and drag them to an Olan Mills for what I can only imagine was one of the worst afternoons of their lives”

“Barcley has this sore on his face that he won’t stop scratching. I avoided the cone for as long as I could but today was the final straw. He seemed so miserable I wanted to show my support.”

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast - Behind The Awkwardness

“I believe this was Halloween 1977, and in the era of creating hand made costumes. I know my dad slaughtered many wire coat hangers and reams of tin foil to make my fairy wings and crown. As far as my brother was concerned, my best guess is that he went as some uber creepy Planet of the Apes character.”

Middle Child

Middle Child - Behind The Awkwardness

“I am the angry girl in the van. My younger brother and mother are the two happy people posing. I also have an older brother who is not pictured but I was constantly teased about how no one likes the middle child and how my younger brother is “the baby” and “the favorite.” This picture pretty much sums up how I felt about being the middle child.”

The Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter - Behind The Awkwardness

“We had a pilgrim costume in our family, and my mom thought it was hilarious to sew a red letter “A” on it for me to wear on Halloween. She told me it was because my name starts with A, but I’m sure the teachers and school administration thought it was either amazingly funny or completely inappropriate to dress up a 4th grader as Hester Prynne.”
