“This is a photo of me (in the yellow suit) and my friend Melissa hanging out in a kiddie pool with the three very elderly, very large women-all sisters-who lived next door to me. They were always referred to as ‘the Old Ladies’ and would babysit me sometimes. I don’t know why my parents didn’t stop this from happening. Perhaps they knew the photo would haunt me the rest of my life.”

“This was our 3 year-old’s answer when prompted…several times….by his teacher. Together with the dark scribbles, we think we have a rough road ahead.”

“This is a picture of my two sons five years ago. I was busy doing dishes when I discovered this and smelled peanut butter! Well they had got the entire giant jar and painted one another including the curtains and toy box and floor!”

“This photo was taken around 1999. I was studying at the School of Art and the teacher wanted us to create a story based on photos. Some students went to the countryside, others to the sea… I was too busy paying attention to my teenage hormones and I ran out of time to do my homework, so I decided it’d be a good idea just taking some pictures of myself in my bath dressed as… God knows! There are a few more with bizarre outfits, but I think this is probably the worst of all.”

“This is my kindergarten school picture. I was four, and apparently hated taking pictures. The arm you see on the left is my mother’s, to ensure I would stay put while they took the picture.”

“Is this a promotional photo for a new ABC show about a dysfunctional family from the 90s? No, it’s my family! I always felt like my family was the real life version of Malcolm In The Middle, and this picture from Christmas ’99 is photographic proof. PS, I’m the one in the middle. Believe it or not, I actually requested my mom make me that outfit. Viva la purple sweatsuits.”
