“Back in the seventies, my mother bought large quantities of discount fabric to make clothes for the family. Here are my father and three brothers. I’m so glad I was a girl.”

“My family, the Dalys. Taken in the early 1970s. I’m the big brother. We were getting family photo at FOX studios and this was the first photo they took. My sister obviously was still getting ready. The photographer thought it was funny and my folks did too, so they had it printed. We had another taken but this one is the winner. We still talk about to this day. Here’s a photo from dad’s 73rd birthday two days ago.”

“I am the lucky one in the middle on my high school graduation day in June 1979. The two bathing beauties next to me are my sisters. Guess it was hot that day and they obviously decided not to go to the ceremony.”

“Discovered this one while digitizing my grandparents slides. Must have been around the late 1960s. We are not certain about what happened prior to this photo being taken. Our hypothesis: I (the girl) stole and ate the boy’s (my brother’s) chocolate and got into trouble for doing so. Result: Girl sad, boy sad. We’ll never find out but this is just epic. It makes me laugh every time I look at it.”

“This photo of my brother and I was taken on a boating trip in Lake Conroe, Texas. Dad didn’t see what he was doing to me at the time.”

“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.
I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:
Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
Rachel: AHHHHHHH! MOM I NEED A TOWEL!
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
Mom: Told ya.
One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.'”

“I had the classic store-bought costume, including a mask with eye holes that never lined up with your own. My brother was forced to don one of my mother’s ‘homemade’ costumes. His face says it all.”
