Siblings

Maroon 5

“My mother must have ransacked the Sears catalog to purchase these Sears Tuffskins maroon denim outfits (with white top-stitching) for all five of us kids. She got matching outfits for herself and Dad, who aren’t in the photo. Then we all went to Six Flags Over Georgia, where we were mistaken for – on multiple occasions – either a gospel group or a a country music band. As the eldest child (12) and only girl…I was completely mortified and spent most of the day dragging 20 feet behind my family. Flash forward 44 years and it is now my brothers’ and my most ‘precious’ (and totally hilarious) memory! Embrace the awkward!”

Snacktime Strife

“My six-year-old daughter scribbled this note about her little brother, then stuffed in my hand an hour after she had a snack. It reads: ‘It’s just that everyone pays attention to Jay, not me so no one pays attention to me, so people don’t feed me that much.’ She was apparently starved for more than just attention.”

Window Watchers

“While I was having a photo shoot, my mother decided it would be totally acceptable to have the photographer take photos of her and my brother creepin’ through the weird window in this photo. As you can tell, I was pissed and didn’t want to have anything to do with this picture. This picture has been making me, family and friends laugh since 1995! Thanks Madre!”

Team Tums

“This is my Mom and her two sisters when they were all flight attendants, apparently doing some pro bono advertising for Tums––and possibly a food review for the in-flight meal at the same time.”

Red, White, And Groovy

“My Mom has always been a creative sewer. Back in the early 70’s she thought dressing the family alike in the cool, trendy flag cloth would be a great idea. Note the awesome brown polyester pants and cool white belts sported by the guys! And little me on my father’s knee! This picture has been out of the family’s eye for decades and I recently dug it out of somewhere.  I showed it to my Mom and her reaction was “Good lord, what was I thinking?” That got a huge chuckle from me!”

The Adoption Prank

“Did your siblings ever tell you that you were adopted? And did they go as far as to make fake adoption papers and emails to back it up? Well mine did.”

The Re-makeover

“When I was little my older sister decided to give me a ‘makeover’, complete with blue eyeshadow and teeny tiny pigtails! Nearly 15 years later it happened once again.”

The Goose

“These are my husband and his siblings. His sister in pink just goosed my husband. The look on his face is hilarious. His sister on the other end…I’m not sure why she has that look. LOL.”

The Exhibitionists

“My brother and his family tried taking a family picture in our field, but the cows kept following them. The cows were doing this in the background of every single photo. Almost as if they wanted to be photographed.”
