The Forgotten One - Dad

“Here’s a photo that pretty well sums up my parents’ feelings towards my sister and I for a long period of our childhood.”

Achy Breaky Hearts

Achy Breaky Hearts - Siblings

“My mom thought it would be neat to wear swimsuits. Let me tell you– it was pretty darn awkward walking into an Olan Mills in swimwear along with the Achy Breaky hairstyles. Fortunately, enough time has passed that I can look back at this now and laugh.”

Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch - Christmas

“My dad yelled cheese and then I promptly punched my sister in the nose and saluted the camera, distracting most of the adults in the picture.”

Humble Pie

Humble Pie - Siblings

“My brothers and I proudly showing off our gym outfits from middle school. We had just moved from Chicago to Humble, TX, and traded in our school uniforms for these delightful white/purple ensembles. Luckily, we wore different colored striped socks to express our individuality; otherwise we could’ve looked REALLY silly.”

Lapbrother

Lapbrother - Siblings

“I’m sure my mom thought this photo was a wonderful idea at the time. The fact that my sister is superimposed as a giant ghostly head distracts from the more disturbing details– like the fact that I am sitting on my older brother’s lap and holding hands with him, and that we also have matching glasses. I don’t remember a lot about the day that we took this photo, but I do remember thinking that my brown striped sweater was my ‘cool’ sweater and I insisted on wearing it. The fact that my collar had a longer wingspan than a bald eagle is a nice finishing touch.”

Fountain Of Youth

Fountain Of Youth - Kids

“My mom wanted my sister and I to sit for a family picture. When I was little, I always wanted to wear my hair in a fountain ponytail. Apparently, my hair was disagreeing with what my mom wanted it to look like so she chose to grab a brush and try and fix it. The end result was the beautiful fountain on the little girl in pink.”

Flowers In The Attic

Flowers In The Attic - Siblings

“The title of this picture refers to not only those HIDEOUS, flowery, matching skirts our mother forced us to wear, but also to us. I mean, look at us! We were certainly ugly ducks back then. My sister’s hair is pulled back in the tightest french braid possible, as you can tell by the look on her face, behind her gigantic glasses, all while I’m sporting that rather awesome “Dorothy Hamill” haircut. Props to our mother for picking out these flower skirts that look like a garden threw up on us! I’m still amazed that she actually bought the pictures…and these skirts. Thanks mom, really, we owe it all to you!!!”
