“It was just after my fourth birthday when my mom and dad decided it would be fun to take my older sister Lauren and I on a vacation to a ski resort in Michigan. The trip would have been a good chance for some family bonding, but since I was too young to be in their ski group, I got sent to the “ski babies” club.
When my mom came to pick me up at the end of the day, she saw that I had been put underneath a table with a homemade sign that read “timeout”. She was then informed that I wasn’t welcome to come back the next day because I had used “extremely inappropriate language”.
Frustrated, she took me back to the cabin where we were staying and left me to play a board game with my sister, while she tried to figure out what on earth she was going to do with me for the duration of our stay. We had been playing Hi-Ho! Cherry-O for a while, and I really had to pee. Really, really had to pee. Lauren kept daring me to leave, but I knew her ways. She was a sneaky cheater when it came to these games. Given my competitive nature, there was no way I was going to let that happen. I figured I would just wait it out, but it was getting pretty difficult. I had a feeling that if I went pee right there, there was a chance nobody would even notice. So I took my chances and peed in my pants. As I finished going, my mom called my sister and I into the other room so that we could take a photo. When she saw what had happened, she was so fed up with me she made the decision to take the photo anyway. When we returned from our vacation she sent out the picture for a Happy New Years card to family and friends. To this day when I am reintroduced to old family friends, they say, ‘You don’t remember me, but I’ll never forget that picture of you peeing your pants!’”

“I didn’t wear my goggles skiing, went snow blind, and got these patches while my eyes healed. My dad took this photo of me and my ski instructor (who he was trying to make feel guilty/teach a lesson) the next day. I love this picture and I love that my dad would document something like this. I am sure Tony did too.”

“I remember very little of my childhood. It is a pretty much a blur and this might be why… here I am @3yrs napping in the dryer. I am told that sneaking a nap in the dryer while the clothing was still hot was a tradition of mine…I’m just glad my foot was poking out, notifying everyone NOT to shut the door.”
