A parent’s and a child’s ideas of picture day may not always go hand in hand. Not all kids react well to a camera or to the unfamiliar environment of a photo studio with a stranger who insists on making them smile. Sometimes they’re just not having it. Good thing they can laugh about it when they are older.
It is quite possible that the studio where these siblings took their first picture still exists. Where else would they find a place that has the exact same backdrop? Also, props on bringing a teddy bear and on styling the baby brother’s hair and sailor suit.
There’s something about sibling dynamics that are consistent in virtually all families. There’s the firstborn who makes the most mistakes. There’s the youngest who gets spoiled the most. There’s the only child. All of these stereotypes are there for a reason.
This photo perfectly shows the old brother who’s suddenly jealous that his newborn little brother is getting all the attention. And it seems like this dynamic didn’t change for a long time. The younger brother is still getting all the love, and the older one just has to sit there and sulk. He got the expression down to a tee!
Hulk Made This Guy's Day, Both Times!
Hulk Hogan and WWF fans will love this recreated photo. This super fan was lucky enough not only to meet the wrestling icon once but twice. In the sweet photo on the left, the fan looks like he wasn’t even a teenager when he was first trapped in Hulk’s trademark headlock.
Clearly, the fan did not have enough, because he met Hulk again and recreated the photo. Maybe every decade he and Hulk can reconnect to recreate the original photo. These photos definitely make for pure entertainment! And then he can snap into a Slimjim with Randy “The Machoman” Savage.
We're Going to Need a Bigger Bowl
Just like every house has a good ol’ laundry basket, so does it have a nice big mixing bowl. And like the laundry basket, small spaces in the kitchen are great for taking snaps of young kids. Nothing says I love you, son, or daughter, like putting them in the dishwasher to take a few photos!
It may sound nuts, but parents have to take advantage of their kids’ small size while they can and you definitely can’t argue with the results. Time is of the essence and the opportunities won’t last forever. Look at this recreated childhood picture and long gone are the days when he could fit into that mixing bowl, and while he may not be as small and cute as he was in the original, the new photo is absolutely awesome.
Seriously, do you know a child in the world who doesn’t like ice cream? Because we don’t! Children literally scream for ice cream. That’s why it’s called ice cream in the first place. Didn’t you know? These siblings got the memo all those years ago. They loved themselves some bubblegum-flavored gelato back in the day.
Don't you just love painting your tongue sky-blue with some creamy, refreshing goodness? And who says that has to stop at childhood? These siblings continued this tradition well into their 30s. And we think it’s safe to say that they’re not the only siblings to have done this.
