Adventure Time

“My mom thought this picture would be a great surprise for my dad. My little brother looks like a natural bow hunter and my sister apparently enjoy’s bird watching. I got put in the back to catch my pretend fish because my nose is peeling from a very bad sunburn. Our dog isn’t even happy to be in the picture.”

Single Motherhood

“My Mom took me and my brothers to get our picture taken. The look on Mom’s face sums up what it’s like to be a single mother.”

Say Yes To The Vest

“On family picture day, we were made to wear these homemade vests with prints of Scottish terriers on them. But what the camera doesn’t capture is the shame we felt when we put them on. Unable to look each other in the eye, we bore our humiliation with silent equanimity. The dogs and the baby weren’t having it either.”

Directory Assistance

“I was not happy that I had to wear a dress. My little sister was busy picking her nose, and little brother was just plain not a happy camper.”
