Behind The Awkwardness

Baby Bite

“I’m about 2 or 3 in this photo. We were at a family friend’s wedding and apparently, my mom was having fun dancing and not paying attention to me.  I bit her in the butt, legend has it that I drew blood. Another classic family story.”

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.”

Seeing Red

“This is a picture of my mom & I at a Civil War reenactment. To this day I cannot understand why we would want to take a picture with a man who is wearing an apron covered in fake blood. I was just as freaked out then as I am now. Oh, and loving the outfit, Mom!”

Cool Ray

“My parents had a traveling puppet show that my sister and I grew up performing in from ages 8-18. This is one of our promotional pictures of us with a puppet we worked together, named… Cool Ray. YES. Kids could buy a picture for $ .25. And did. I’m on the left, apparently sporting the same hair as the puppet.”

Bed Bath & Beyond

“One night my son decided he was sleeping in the bathtub. In the morning he informed us he slept well, but would probably be returning to his bed soon.”

Sunday Best

“This picture is of me and my two siblings after church on Easter Sunday…when we got home, we decided to wake Dad up and have him take family pictures with us. This is how it ended.”

Puzzler

This is a photo of my dad and my sister’s boyfriend putting a puzzle together while on vacation in Phoenix since it was so stinkin’ hot to go outside. I guess this was also a good way to keep track of the baby.

All By Myself

“Our family went on a forest walk Easter Egg hunt at a local farm and I caught this pic. The entire family witnessed the bunny flopping down on a stump in exhaustion or ‘resignation.’ My six-year old looked up at me and asked, ‘Is the Easter Bunny okay, Mom?'”

When The Sh#* Hits The Fan

“One day we went to change our two week old child. At that time the new doting daddy (me) took pictures of almost everything. Just as his nappy came off the poor little mite projectile pooped straight into the whirling blades of a fan heater. It made quite a mess.”
