Single Motherhood

“My Mom took me and my brothers to get our picture taken. The look on Mom’s face sums up what it’s like to be a single mother.”

Wanted Alive

“Our uncle was sick, and this is the get-well card my eight-year-old daughter thoughtfully created for him as he went to the hospital. Inspired by a children’s book of cowboy craft ideas, she made this ‘Wanted’ poster more ‘authentic’ by crinkling it and ripping off the edges. We kept this one, and she created another one that was a little more toned down.”

Movie Night

“The kids were having one of our regular movie nights. The movie was in 3D. I don’t remember what it was but Dad clearly wasn’t interested. I love that he’s still wearing the 3D glasses while he’s reading, though.”

Break Dance Frank And Friends

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY.  It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing.  If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”

Cemetery Chic

“This was taken in New Orleans circa 1986. I am pretty sure it was 105°F that day. My mother told my Dad and I to pose in front of the mausoleums. Is there any doubt that we were tourists? Is there any further doubt that we made that cemetery look good? This picture is a reminder why Jam shorts and midriffs went out of style. Happy Father’s Day!”

Chanel No. 5000

“Nana just got home from her twice yearly trip to Mexico. After telling us about the great deal she got on perfume, she wanted to hold my daughter. The baby wasn’t a fan of the copious amounts Mexican Chanel #5 her great grandma was wearing.”
