An Easter Possession

An Easter Possession - Easter

“This photo has baffled my family since it was taken on Easter 1984. When my mom got the photo back, she immediately had me try to pose like this and I couldn’t. We’ve never figured it out. No photoshop, and I assure you I am neither possessed by a demon nor anywhere near that flexible.”

Open Your Eyes, Kid

Open Your Eyes, Kid - Kids

“First year participating in t-ball and this is the photo! When we asked our son what he was doing with his eyes he said,  ‘the photographer told me to open my eyes more.’ I guess you can say he followed directions well!”

“My parents were worried that I couldn’t clap along to music, so they enrolled me in a hip-hop dance class. (I’m the one in the middle.)”

Maroon 5

Maroon 5 - Kids

“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

Snacktime Strife - Kids

“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.”

“This is the first school photo of my life, taken when I was five years old. Two of my classmates were kindergarteners in love and this photo makes it obvious.”
