“Mother of the Year award. Not only is my daughter faceplanting in the back there, my son is standing on top of our broken gate. No one was hurt in this awkward family moment.”

It was a nice day at the park. My girls and I had just walked a couple of miles. They looked so pretty I just had to snap a picture. Maybe I should’ve picked a better background?

It was crazy windy and this was the only day to take our yearly Christmas pictures that fit our busy schedule. My husband is trying to hold our 1 year old as he’s wiggling around kicking his legs and knocking our middle child in the head causing him to scream. I am trying to keep calm while I’m holding him with a half smile on my face. While our oldest son is waiting patiently for our family photographer to say, ‘Cheese!’ Needless to say, this picture did make it on the Christmas card and everyone loved it!

“My sister had separation issues as a child…I learned to deal with it at an early age.”

“I took pride in creating my own costumes. I thought this costume would generate a lot of laughs. In retrospect, constipation is more funny to 9 year-olds than the population as a whole.”

“A friend of mine ordered a picture cake and gave the woman a thumb drive with the picture she wanted to use. When my friend went to pick it up, this is what was waiting for her. My friend thought it was hysterical and didn’t give them a hard time. The woman’s manager insisted on giving her this one as well as the corrected cake for free. She said “I thanked the girl profusely. The rest of the staff at the store had a field day with it when I went through the check out. In the end, I paid half price for one cake because they didn’t have the proper filling, and nothing, of course, for the USB cake.”
“Just found this gem. My second child pulled down my shirt at just the right moment for this photo, giving the elf photographer a little more than he bargained for!”

“During our holiday family photo shoot this year, we wanted to recreate a cute one we got last year when Tommy was just a baby. It didn’t quite turn out like we hoped it would…next time I guess mom should avoid sticking her nose in his eye.”
