We tend to look back on childhood nostalgically. We think we had it easy back then: sleep, eat, poop – it was a simple time. But these funny, sometimes ridiculous photos that we spotted at Beautiful/Decay make us eternally grateful for growing up. Taken by someone we know only as Molly of her “Precious Roommate,” they serve as a response to the cushy baby photos parents are perpetually showing off. From puffy outfits to bunny ears to strawberry costumes, we would look very silly indeed if we allowed our parents to keep dressing us. And young though we were, why did we ever think sucking our toes was a good idea? Click through to see some of our favorite images from the series, and visit My Precious Roommate for many more.
