Grandma

Ten Pack

“This is a photo of my great-grandma and all of her great-grand children. Sears must have been having a special or something because I (front row, pink dress) remember waiting in line for a very long time before it came for our turn to have our picture taken. This explains all the children’s bored/upset faces. It was miserable at the time, but now it’s a funny and iconic family photo.”

Ink Master Jr.

“While my husband was on a business trip, my mom took my second-born to the tattoo parlor. He clearly had questions about this decision.”

Hands On

“My sister and three kids live 2,000 miles away from my family and I. They wanted to make a gift for my mom, their Nana.”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”

Photo Fracas

“Grandmother was taking pics at Sears with her grandkids. The boys were fussy and didn’t want to be there but the girls were great.”

White Wedding

“While looking through my parents wedding album I came across this photo. Apparently, my grandmother didn’t like the picture of herself.”

Gimme Some Sugar

“This is a picture from our wedding day. After the ceremony, we dismissed the pews and when my new husband leaned down to kiss my Grandma on the cheek, I think he got a little more than he bargained for!”

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the ‘Rachel’ haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie It, right before the picture was taken.”

The Grand Compromise

“This is a photo of my husband’s sweet-as-pie Grandma with her great-grandsons. Grandma is holding one of our sons, and our other son is face down on the floor. He only wanted to be in the picture if he could be like that. Note that he does not let go of his balloon throughout the whole process.”
