The Retirement Gift

“This photo is my mom, about 17 years ago, opening a large package containing a beautiful handmade quilt that the staff at her school gave her at her retirement party (she was school nurse for 27 years). Dad was holding the bottom edges of the bag it was packed in so she could remove the contents more easily.

I found the photo recently, took another look, and fell over laughing!!  We think Dad, who died in April 2011, would have gotten a big kick out of it, too.  (Mom said I could submit this; she has a great sense of humor.)”

Rice, Rice Baby

“I asked, ‘Grandma, do you have some rice that I can put my phone in? It got wet.’ She pulls this out of a cabinet.”

It Follows

“We were shopping at Walmart over Easter weekend and our 2-year-old son was terrified of this creepy Easter bunny who kept following him. I was in another section of the store at the time this picture was taken. Our son was with his dad when he saw the bunny behind him and said, ‘No, no!! Mama, mama!'”

Free Bird

“I don’t know where this was taken, I think I blocked the whole experience from my memory. I’m not sure why there is a mime next a Big Bird lookalike. If you look closely you’ll notice Big Bird isn’t wearing pants.”

Skin Deep

“My coworker had just gotten her hair colored red at the salon. (She is a dark brunette by nature) Her 10 year old daughter was in the middle of making her a handmade Mother’s Day card when she returned home and saw her mom’s “new hair” for the first time. This was the completed card she received.”

Flesh and Bone

“When your amazing, artist Dad says we’re taking a family photo and his photographer friend is going to shoot it, you do it with no question. Oh, and Dad wants it to be unique so it will be in black and white…and we will appear shirtless. He’s the artist, so he knows best, right? This is the first (and only) time this photo has hit the light of day.”

No Rod Required

“My kids were canoeing at a park when my son saw the tail of this huge grass carp and decided he wanted it. With no fishing rod or gear, he just hopped out of the canoe and grabbed it up. He loved on it for a little, letting the ‘mammarazzi’ shoot some pics, and released the shocked fish. Then I sent him home with his dad, since he smelled like a giant fish.”

National Treasure

“My mom didn’t answer my call today. Texted asking what she was up to, and this is the photo she sent back.”
