Love At First Hate

“My girlfriend made me a jar of ‘101 things she loves about me.’ As terrible as it may seem, I think this one is vital to a healthy relationship.”

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the “Rachel” haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie, “IT”, right before the picture was taken.”

Big Baby

“Between his giant, hairless head and his adorable neck wrinkles, my fiance, Andrew, still looks exactly like his baby pictures. The first time I visited his parents and saw the old photos, I knew what their Christmas present would be the next year.

I scanned in the original sepia toned baby pics, and spend a day demanding Andrew recreate them. This wasn’t as fun as we thought it would be, because it involved me directing Andrew to do impossible things like “make your chin more wrinkled, but don’t tip your head down. Look towards the sun, but don’t squint and don’t frown. Giggle like a baby! No, no, not like that. Be more cute! Eyes wider but also make your neck fatter and relax your shoulders! Stay still while a smear this donut on you.”  Anyway, we learned I’m bad at art directing and he’s real bad at being a baby, but the photo collage came out amazing. He’s adorable, then and now.”

Going Rogue

“We tried taking a nice family picture now that my daughter is one. She looks like she’s going to slit someone’s throat.”

The Chaperones

‘This photo was taken before my elementary school’s annual Father Daughter dance. My sister and I are standing alongside our father on the right, our family friends are to the left, and two motherly chaperones had a little too much to drink and took it upon themselves to pose in our photo with us. It ended up looking like a polygamist advertisement. It was quite the experience & the picture just exudes awkward.”

Anything You Can Do

“This is my older daughter – her sister is the one laughing hysterically on the bed.  The little one had been doing ‘acrobatic’ moves jumping through the spaces on her bunk bed ladder, and her big sister thought it would be funny to try it herself. After I finished laughing hysterically and running to another room to get the camera, I did eventually help her get free.”
