Behind The Awkwardness

Potty Training

“I think I was about 18 months old when my mother took this picture. I had climbed into the toilet on my own. My parents were a little upset because I was wearing my new leather shoes and my mother thought if she flushed I would get scared but I just giggled and smiled!”

Tape

“My father took this picture of my brothers and me. He’s from Slovakia and English is his second language. Maybe he couldn’t read the sign.”

Little Miss Sunshine

“My sister’s senior prom fell on the same day as my dance rehearsal. My older sister was obviously not too excited to be taking a picture with her can-can clad little sister.”

Stuffed

“This is the way my mother found my sister sleeping. In her pajamas she has a puppet, a stuffed monkey, a stuffed seal, two blankets, and a watch.”

The Rub

“This is my husband when he was 6 or 7. His grandma sent him to school on PICTURE DAY in this shirt. You can’t see the bottom, but the shirt actually says ‘Rub it easy, make it hard.’ No joke. His grandma obviously was clueless. Needless to say, he didn’t wear it to school again.”

Foxy Lady

“My priest owns an African Fennic Fox and decided to bring her to my wedding. Well, this normally tame awesome little creature, which I had met & held the day before, decided to go buck-wild & climb up my neck. Thankfully (I think), my wedding photographer caught it on camera. I was mostly scared it would scratch my gown but it just scratched up my chest…which prompted my awesome priest to say ‘Oh sorry, she scratched your boobs up.’ That’s my husband on the right laughing nervously & not saving me btw :)”
