Mother’s Day Portraits Gone Awry

Re-posted from last year, with several extra-heartwarming additions…

Ah, Mom.  In honor of Mother’s Day being right around the corner, here are a few pictures that prove us moms are something special, all right.


Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. She also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats who enjoy blanketing every inch of the house in kitty fur.

    Wow. Those are truly horrifying! That hockey mom – what on earth made her think that was a good idea?? Those kids will be scarred forever. Please smack me on the side of the head if I ever embarrass my kids like that.

    Oh my god, I feel so embarrassed for them just looking at those photos 😉

    Why is the hockey mom only wearing a bra on top? I don’t want to see that and I’m pretty sure her sons definitely don’t! Hiding their identities, indeed!

    Yeah, the Hockey Mom photo begs a lot of questions — but I don’t think I want to know the answers.
