Mom

Bachelorette Party

“This was my aunt’s bachelorette party! Not only does my grandma look beautiful, my mom looks mortified. I remember this guy showing up as a cop then my mom making all the kids go play in the back yard! I knew they were all up to something. R.I.P. Grammy I will miss you forever and ever! ”

Laser Mullets (with denim)

“I don’t think anyone is prepared for the 90s masterpiece of my mom, her boyfriend, me and my brothers. Those mullets. The lasers. And so much denim.”

Sunday Best

Poster Boy

“My brother purchased this Burt Reynolds poster all by himself for our Mom and he was quite proud. She hung it over her bed where it remained for years. I don’t recall Dad objecting to this, or if he did, she still won. I’m the one looking confused in the Dorothy Hamill haircut.”

Feeding Frenzy

“A lovely picture I drew of me, my cousins, and brother throwing my mother into shark-infested waters. I distinctly remember adding stripes to the shark because I knew tiger sharks were known to be aggressive. This is neatly labeled on the back ‘Sarah: 7 years old’ and lives on my parent’s fridge. To this day, I have no idea why people weren’t more concerned.”

Outback Chic

“We grew up in the Aussie country and my mum thought she was ‘trendy’. My older bro was only 11 and already taller than my mum. New Years Eve, 1987.”

Everybody Do The Dinosaur

“Photo of my family and me (on the left) in the 80’s. No lie, this was a casual Saturday afternoon on our way to the mall! Just HaleyASaurus, MommyASaurus, and HeidiASaurus traveling around in our ‘Wish We Were A Dinosaur Family’ sweats!”

Thriller

“It was just your typical church directory picture from Olan Mills, until my son went to art school, enlarged it and superimposed Michael Jackson into it. This was featured in a school-wide Mother’s Day show with the title ‘My mother dated Michael Jackson.'”
