Behind The Awkwardness

Channel 9

“This is me at approximately 4 years old, in 1988. My brother came across this gem during a move. I sent this to my dad, asking if he remembered taking this picture, since he was the main picture-taker in our family. His response was, “Oh I did! You look so pretty and cute!” But Dad, what about what’s on the TV next to me? Obviously, this was taken before we had the ability to pause live TV- perfect timing. Lol.”

“This is a photo of me ( holding my bear) and my grandpa and dad. One or the other would get stuck babysitting me at times. I’d get dragged down to the local bar, a cherry coke to nurse for the night and would have my bear to talk to. Good times for all.”

The Fall Guy

“My mother has always had a ‘unique’ fashion sense and a love for capturing her family in pictures. In this epic photo, I the young boy in front of the group of hat-wearing ladies show my lack of interest in the photo by staging my only defense… rubber legs.”

Lost In Translation

“I was going through old family photos with my best friend when I came across this gem. Looks like the shirt should say “sweatshirt”, but the way he’s positioned it looks like it says “Eat…”

Lost

“A family friend of mine recently went camping with their family. At some point during the day they realised they couldn’t find their 3 year old son and spent 20 minutes in a mad panic trying to find him. And this is where he was. Just chilling.”

Star Wars Cantina

“My parents local bar announced an all night viewing of the ‘Star Wars’ movies. My mom dressed up the whole family…. a day late. We spent the night dressed up in a bar with people in normal clothes.”

Parenthood

“My mother caught us unaware as we had just sat down after returning from the hospital.  This picture vividly illustrates that no matter the amount of lamaze classes, you will not be prepared for reality.”

What Happens In Vegas
