Women In Black - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was my sister and mom and I in a dance recital… as ADULTS! We were the Men-In-Black and Mom must have been an alien belly-dancer.”

Seeing Is Believing

Seeing Is Believing - Behind The Awkwardness

“This miraculous photo is of my darling dear mother, in the 80′s, with what is obviously a cutout of the great Thomas Sullivan Magnum. The best part of this photo is the glasses, but, the second best part is the fact that my mom refuses to admit that it is a cutout. She still thinks she met Tom Selleck.”

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day - Behind The Awkwardness

“I’m the pissed-off one dressed in high style 80′s neon on the far right, two feet away from Mom and my grandmother who clearly think the occasion warrants a bit more elegance than I do. (And yes, it really was mother’s day).”

School Ties

School Ties - Behind The Awkwardness

“As was tradition in our family, we were taking our first day of school photos.  The cat, Cuddles, had been posing with us in some of our earlier shots and then ran off.  I was whining because I wanted to have the cat in the pictures.  My brother, intolerant of my whining, punched me and told me to shut up.  This made me cry and I started crying harder when I realized my mom was still taking pictures.”

Haunted House

Haunted House - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is me somewhere around 1981-82 with a demon at a local haunted house that ran every year. I was addicted to horror movies as a kid (and still am) so whenever the haunted house started up, I’d beg my mom let me to go in with the lights off.  After an endless amount of badgering, she finally let me go through in the dark. Expecting me to come running back out screaming, she stayed by the entrance only to see me come bouncing out the exit with a huge smile on my face. To commemorate this, she let me pose for a picture with the demon. As you can see, my smile refused to fade even a little bit and I was probably more than a little overdressed for the occasion.”

Through The Looking Glass 2

Through The Looking Glass 2 - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is photo of me on my wedding day before the ceremony started. The photographer told me to pretend I was looking out the window to see if my soon to be husband had arrived. I always thought it was such a goofy picture because I couldn’t see a thing out that stained glass window.”
