Eight Is Enough

“Is this a promotional photo for a new ABC show about a dysfunctional family from the 90s? No, it’s my family! PS, I’m the one in the middle. Believe it or not, I actually requested my mom make me that outfit. Viva la purple sweatsuits.”

Playing Possum

“That’s my grandfather (Pappy) kneeling, my sister in his lap, and my cousin standing. I believe it was my uncle’s possum – he was known for taking in and rehabbing animals in a spare bathroom. This was taken in 1969 in Grand Junction, Tennessee.”

Plaid On Plaid

“This picture was taken on Jan 8, 1980 on my cousins 1st birthday. I am the 11 year old child dressed like her parents with a father who was the only one wearing a party hat. The matching plaid couch along with our lumberjack wardrobe is what nightmares are made of or what makes your friends laugh at you hysterically. The bonus in this picture is that it was taken at a happy occasion but you wouldn’t be able to tell it by the look on my face.”

Swim Fan

“Me sitting in a seat attached to a bare concrete wall at the pool while my siblings swam. Childcare in the 90’s was wild, man.”

Dazed And Confused

“What’s confusing (echoed by the bewildered looks on our faces) is that *this* is the photo that our parents chose to buy. How bad were the others?
