Mom’s Blues

“My son made a nice little Mother’s Day Booklet for me when he was in grade one. I must have been having a rough month.”

In Bloom

“A picture of my family and I (I’m the little girl with brown hair). My mom thought it would be a good idea to take the family to get professional photos. We were rocking the mullets, huge glasses, and floral prints.”

Mommy’s Little Goth

Thumb War

“What a proud moment for mom. Little did she know that there was no thumb sucking allowed in the picture!”

Hockey Mom

This is a photo of my mom, my brother, myself, and my soon to be born younger brother. I’m awkwardly in the hockey equipment on the bottom left. A family friend talked mom into having us all pose for this photo. It went on to win some sort of award in a Newport, RI photo show. It also hung in our house while I was growing up, which made for some awkward moments when friends came over.”

Tube Tops

“This is a portrait of me and my mom taken at the local Woolworth’s in the late 70’s. My mom thought it would be cute to take photos in our tube tops. I posted this pic on FB as it’s always been one of my favorites; I thought it was so sweet. Two weeks later, a friend saw it on FB and suggested that it could be a contender for your site. I HAD NEVER THOUGHT OF THE PHOTO IN THAT LIGHT, but now that I see what others see, I can’t stop laughing.”

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.”

The Runaway Mom

“I was just trying to peel my daughter off of me, sit her on the bench and then I was running to get out of the picture. However it looks like I have left my children with their sitter and am running away for dear life!”
