Babies

Basket Case

“My dad used to swing me around in a tiny garbage can and it was so much fun. I didn’t know it was weird until I asked around and found out that no one else’s dads swung them around in garbage cans.”

The Babysitter’s Flub

“My son in 1993. My mother-in-law was babysitting and found the doll and thought it would make him laugh. My mother-in-law did not babysit after that.”

Mini Me

“This is me looking at a cloth doll version of myself someone gifted me as a baby…I still wonder who thought this would be a good idea because it’s not creepy at all.”

Up

“This photo of my 6 month old brother was taken on my second birthday. Apparently my siblings thought it would be hilarious to tie balloons to all of his limbs and my parents were just like, ‘whatever.’ He was the eighth child, so I guess by then nothing mattered.”

Busted

“My mom, bless her soul, absolutely loved her dustbuster and thought all of us should have one for Christmas. We all posed with her and her trusty old one.”

Brotherhead

“This is of my older sister, perfect in all pictures, and older brother’s gigantically chubby head. The photographer thought this was the best picture of the whole shoot. My mom thought it was hilarious and horrifying, so of course she bought it.”
