Babies

Bedtime Stories

“I was born during the last week of October 1966. By December 1966, Dad was reading me Playboy articles as bedtime stories.”

Taking The Plunge

“My 11 month old was fascinated by the household toilet plunger. Obviously, it was off limits. But after a week of constantly prying it from his little grasp, I bought him a brand new one for his very own. And then… this is what he did with it.”

Bottle Service

“My family liked to play board games — so much so that apparently feeding the baby (me) took too much precious time away from the game! So they rigged a string from the lamp to hold my bottle. My sister is quite proud of this hack! Dad is in the background, likely getting another game of Scrabble ready. Pretty sure Mom took the picture! Ironically, it probably took them longer to rig up the bottle than it would have taken to actually feed me.”

What Are You Looking At?

“Not one smile, my dad’s chest hair is popping, I’m the baby and I look stunned. And why is my dads collar touching his shoulders?!”

Baby On Board

“My parents were just kinda poor musicians back in the early 90s. We lived in the Florida keys and didn’t have a car so they did what they could to get to the grocery store and back. They attached the milk crate to the back of the scooter and I think they used a bungee chord as a seat belt.”

Tale Of The Tape

“My dad said I hated wearing pants when I was a baby so to keep me from getting carpet burn, he loosely duct taped paper towels to my legs-notice my great grandma staring in disbelief.”
