Potpourri

“The year was 1992 or 93, the place Olan Mills. I’m the one with glasses, braces and the mushroom cut. My sister and I were wearing matching dresses my grandmother made. There is so much going on in this picture, I don’t even know where to start…It’s cringeworthy all around!”

Picture Imperfect

“I wanted so badly to get the perfect family photo as a gift for the grandparents. We did get a beautiful photo but this one ended up being my favorite. 15 years later, my mom still has it hanging on her fridge.”

Bringing Home Baby

“This is my parents leaving my grandmothers house after staying there for a month after I was born! My mother didn’t believe she actually could take care of me alone, at 28 years old! That’s my grandmom locking the door in the background! Thankfully they turned out to be good parents!”

Baby Goth

“I’m the baby in the photo and my parents were very goth-rock in the 80s and dressed us all up to take professional photos at Walmart.”

Cardboard Daughter

“My parents threw a graduation party for themselves after the last kid, (the one on the left end), graduated from high school. The oldest child was out of state at the time and unable to attend. So my mom took a cardboard moving box, cut it out in a shape that resembled a human being, and stuck her face on it.”

Hair Care

“When my sister and her family took my mom to Disney World, my mom was concerned about her hair getting wet so she put a plastic bag on her head. ”

Tornado Drill

“The only safe place to hide out during a tornado in our home is a tiny bathroom on the first floor. When we got an early morning alert about a nearby tornado, my husband and I crammed into our bathroom with our newborn and our fabulously fat cat. Safety first, beauty second.”

Grandpa Casual

“My mom sent me this and said ‘I’m trying to figure out where all of us were going??’ I really hope my grandfather wasn’t joining them.”
