Labor Pain

“My husband decided to do a selfie while I was having multiple unsuccessful attempts to run an IV in my hand while being prepped for a C-Section. This was nurse #3 and the ninth time they attempted to run the IV.”

Little Nibbler

“Tried to take nice family photos and as the photographer said ‘alright, serious faces for this one’ my daughter turned and bit me on the shoulder.”

The Minnesota Sweats

“My dad grew up in Minnesota, where the tradition of sweating out your worries (and clearly your soul), in a giant, cedar oven is passed down from each white, pasty, Scandinavian generation to the next.”

Fists Of Fury

“Palestine, Arkansas, early 90s. I got bullied a lot and when I asked my dad to teach me to defend myself he suggested we take Taekwondo together as a family. Our instructor told us the major appeal of taekwondo as a martial art was the “Intimidation Factor.” I think we pulled it off in this photo.”

Worth It

“Our family photo from 1981. I seem annoyed even though I’m wearing my favorite Izod terry cloth shirt. My sister is comforting my grandmother. My Dad and brother seem somewhat pleased. This photo was stored in the original envelope which was marked COD, so we definitely paid for this.”

Hot Tub Greetings

“My parents just got a hot tub and were very excited about it. Therefore, my grandma hired a professional photographer to take a family photo in the hot tub. For some reason they posed with wine and candles even though the children were not old enough to drink… and sent it out to 150 plus friends as a Christmas card.”
