Kids are a joy, but they also have their moments where frustration reigns in the hearts of parents.
But occasionally, kids do something that their parents get on film, and these parents patiently wait, knowing that kids eventually turn into teenagers and young adults.
Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of teens like a good old dose of EMBARRASSMENT!
And the patient parent finally has revenge for the length of life shaved off due to worry and stress as well as gray hair as these captured moments from long ago come back to bite the unwary former child in the backside when teenagers have friends and boyfriends to try to impress.
This is a scan of a 35mm slide from around 1990 when we were living in Powder Springs, Georgia, a suburb northwest of Atlanta.
This one never fails to make me laugh, especially how Number Two Daughter popped her pacifier back in her mouth through the mouth hole in the paper sack mask. They were about 2 and 4 years old here.
Good times. Then AND now.
