Cool Ray - Behind The Awkwardness

Cool Ray

“My parents had a traveling puppet show that my sister and I grew up performing in from ages 8-18. This is one of our promotional pictures of us with a puppet we worked together, named… Cool Ray. YES. Kids could buy a picture for $ .25. And did. I’m on the left, apparently sporting the same hair as the puppet.”

Die Pigs - Kids

Die Pigs

“This is from my five-year-old son’s kindergarten workbook.  They were supposed to  write the last letters for rhyming words.  When I asked him about it, he said ‘Oops!  I meant to write a G!  Haha!’  At this point he has no idea what word he actually wrote.”

Sugar Grills - School Photos

Sugar Grills

“Classic sugar grill.  Story goes that I chewed on my bottle so much that it ruined my teeth.  My neighbors used to chase me around the yard with pliers saying they were going to rip out my teeth and sell the silver.”

Party Like It’s 1995 - More Holidays

Party Like It’s 1995

“I was nine years old, and my younger sister was almost 7.  I vaguely remember my mom giving us a ton of New Year’s party favors for us to play with. Apparently we tried them on, and she wanted a photo. Thank God she caught us in our best clothes…a magenta wind suit and short-alls with tights and a turtleneck. I guess this was also that phase where she let us do our own hair. You might also notice that I am wearing a Nutcracker necklace that I was particularly fond of. Everything about this photo screams  cool.”

The Loophole - Babies

The Loophole

“I hated my baby sister. I hated being dressed like her. I hated being forced to play with her. And when I was told not to hit her I found a loophole. We’re thick as thieves now. But then? I’d ripped her stupid blonde head off.”

Too Much - Siblings

Too Much

“This happened after my son spent the night away from his sister. When he returned, they hugged. I went to take a picture of the hugging, then this happened. I told them, “That’s too much!!!”

The Moment She Realized She Was The Middle Child - Siblings

The Moment She Realized She Was The Middle Child

“I think this was THE moment that Katie realized that she was a middle child…. To say she was unhappy that her SISTER got to do everything including holding the new baby brother for pictures, would be an understatement.”

Banana Boy - Graduation

Banana Boy

“I wasn’t able to attend the appointment for my son’s senior pictures.  I sent my son off with his sister (because I assumed she would give good guidance for pictures) and the photographer.  This is what I got.  We used it on his graduation announcement.”
