Open Your Eyes, Kid

“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!”

Three Cats And A Bunny - Behind The Awkwardness

Three Cats And A Bunny

“Listen, there’s nothing easy about holding three cats and a bunny all the same time. That little bunny, whose name is Arthur, is a big trouble-maker. He likes to bite on those cats when he gets a chance to. But those cats love him anyway. The cats involved are Madjka, Chachka and Pagliacci. I should explain, Christmas was coming and I wanted a picture with my my fur babies. (I work at a photography studio.)”

“But those fur babies were not on their best behavior. I seem to recall that Arthur, that little devil, nibbled at Pagliacci first and then all hell broke loose. Cat and bunny hair flying all around that photo studio. Now, remember this is where I worked. The cats went to running, the bunny went to hopping, and I was just beside myself. Thank goodness it was a Sunday and we were closed. Our display pictures were flying everywhere.”

“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.)”

“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 - Kids

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.”
