Paper Scissors

“When my daughter was 5 she decided to use her paper scissors to cut her hair. I was NOT. HAPPY. I think the face says it all.”

No, It’s Not A Wig - Behind The Awkwardness

No, It’s Not A Wig

“This is what happens when your mother chops off your beautiful, long, thick, Crystal-Gayle-length hair the day before school photos in Grade 2.  She curled it under every morning.  Success was not having to break out the Aloe Vera for the accidental forehead burns from the curling iron. My hair rivals one of the stooges but it’s meticulous, I give her that. She must have forgotten to do laundry in her haste and put me in some costume that would rival Liberace’s stage clothes. And check out the glasses.  Didn’t realize I was cross eyed until this picture surfaced 33 years later.

The Santa Standoff - Behind The Awkwardness

The Santa Standoff

“My son had a complete change of heart when it was his turn. No amount of pleading or bribing worked. I was pretty horrified at his behavior, but something told me to order the print and I’m so glad I did. P.S. The teacher/mom in me came made an appearance. After a serious conversation in the mall chairs, we got in line to do it again and he was a happy and willing participant!”

Lollipop Lollipop - Behind The Awkwardness

Lollipop Lollipop

“11:15PM. I’m brushing my teeth before bed and I hear a strange noise coming from Aaliyah’s room. I open her door and turn on the light to see her run towards her bed, lay down and pretended she was sleeping. Meanwhile there were about 20 unwrapped lollipops (don’t know how she got the bag) laying around her room, and one still in her hand (as she lay there ‘sleeping’. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. The fake sleeping with evidence in her hand was priceless.”
