The Placeholder

“This was my parent’s pregnancy announcement in 1991 a couple months before my birth. My dad saved the cardboard outline and gave it to me before the birth of my first child.”

“This is a picture of me (the little girl), my brother, and my parents. Yes, my brother is wearing acid washed jeans held up by red suspenders. Yes, my father is rockin’ the pencil ‘stache. Yes, I have the ‘I need an adult’ face. I’m not sure what concerns me more – what my parents are doing to my brother or my brother’s enjoyment of it.”

“My daughter, 6th grade, age 12 with all of her favorite things. Dennis Rodman jersey, JNCO jeans, her violin, picture of Hanson and her weird little stuffy dog/bear.”

“With relatives in West Germany (before the reunification in 1989), we were in the lucky position to get some Levi’s jeans or hot fake snakeskin pants.”

“Nothing makes a pubescent girl feel cooler than a ‘properly set table’ Halloween costume. Let’s just say the costume did not fare well on the school bus.”

Hat Trick

“I had just had my third son in less than 4 years. My 2 year-old jumped up on the bed to meet the baby and onto my c-section incision and my 3 year old dropped his pants.”

Discovery Toys

“This pic was taken in the early 90s after my great grandmother had just died. My father had built her coffin and my cousins and I thought it would be fun to play around in it before her burial. I’m the child in the middle.”

The Litter

“One pet turned into 14 quickly.  All are under 2 years old! They’re very well behaved, which is our saving grace.”
