        schooled bro

    • Meh

      The only thing worse than being that "First!!1!" dickhead is being second.

      • sinches

        Fair enough, but I think it would be worse to be the kind of person that gets pissed about internet commenters. Welcome to the interwebz bro.

  • AJ Rantz

    wow 7 to 9 what a jump

    • Kmart

      It's called puberty!

    • djp

      I agree, the spurt between 8th grade and his freshman year stunned for a second.

    • D-Wiz

      he def hit puberty somewhere around grade 8

  • Steve

    Looks like he was a good sport about it by 7th grade i would have been like f this dad!

    • GernBlansten

      Kinda what I thought. The fact that he even still speaks to his parents is telling…..

  • Brian

    thats scary shit. im excited to be a father one day

    • jack of all trades

      I'm going to be a father in 3 weeks. I'm going to do this with my son.

      • JohnnyAppleSeed

        no, no you won't

      • hello

        Greatest feeling in the world. Mine will be 6 months old next friday.

    • paulhitchcock

      It will be the best thing to ever happen to you. I've got a 14-month old daughter and a son on the way in October. I'm going to do this picture thing with both of mine.

    • Bryan

      Best thing that ever happened to me in my life. My little guy is 17 months old now. I didn't know what happiness really was until I had him. Being a dad rules!

      • banana flapjacks

        ive had 4 abortions with 4 different girls. thats a better feeling

    • Cali_Dude

      I have 2 girls, adopted, and it is the best and hardest thing I have ever done. Really changed my life for the better.

      • Guest

    • cubanitagirl11

    • bill

    • Kevin Flan


    • Some_Guy

      I'm sure its a fine shirt. Besides, it's probly his lucky shirt or something

  • etcrr

    He is a very proud father, which is great. as it should be

    • etcrrr

      This post is very nice coz its nice and the father is nice and the kid is nice too.

      • Billy

        You two have the same grade except they are in different directions because i too can spot the obvious.

        • Leddy420

          Don't mind captain obvious(etcrr), his brain is incapable of an original thought.

    • bill

      that reminds me of a movie i once saw. there was a father. and there was something else. and it was great. it was a movie.

  • Dave

    Pretty cool… Thanks Chive!

    Went from Porsche to family car…the price of kids realised

    • MonkeyMadness

      That is the neighbor across the street.

      • Not Again

        And they painted the garage, too….

    • ATx

      And thats an Audi…not necessarily a down grade

      • yes, yes it is

        maybe it depends on where you live. where i am porsches are about 60k+ starting. audis start at 37ish + so's a downgrade

  • Steve

    This kids really likes black t shirts

    • Girl

      every parent in the 90's seemed to do this

      • Travis

        mine did

      • jack of all trades

        We were too poor to have a camera…

      • Man

        Shut up, whore.

        • HelenTheMelon

          No need for that

  • Young Comfy Jones

    You're fucking up the vibe in here man…. and that sounds weird as shit anyways

    • Date Tall People

      Esay man. let it go.

      • Young Comfy Jones

  • dashete

    #10 At year 9, he discovered something in his pockets and never looked back.

    • That Guy 13

      Pocket pool.

  • DaddyD

    It's clear that Bob is not a father. This is pretty typical. I have first day of school photos for all 3 of my kids.

    • Trav1121

      *clapping* It is also clear you missed the point.

      • Otter

        The point is that any of us could put together a similar collection, and probably have.

        • Trav1121

          Actually the point is how quickly things change in a short period of time, not 'Oh look I haz a camera and lovez my child.' That is a given.

          • Otter

            …and every parent who takes an annual photo of their kid understands this and it's why we do it.

      • who cares

        Yeah I missed the point as well. Like why is this on here? I would put money that the majority of parents take photos of their kids on the first day of school. It isn't a phenomenon.

        • careaboutall!

          Its nice to look at and share with others. Good lord!

          Plus my parents always tried to take pictures every year, but some were lost along the way and not kept in chronological order like this guy did with his child.

          go who cares somewhere else!! downer!!

  • Mean bean

    Sometime between 8 and 9 puberty struck

  • kylecali

    My dad did this with me. At my high school graduation party, there was a slideshow and at the end were the pictures he took. My cousin taught my dad how to have the pictures "morph" from one to the next to show how I grew over the years. It's hard to believe how much change someone goes through in less than 2 decades. I was just as much in awe of my growth as the tree standing behind me. If I ever have kids, I'm going to do this.

  • RonDogg

    is it just me or does this "kid" look like he's 20 at 12yrs old??? anyone see the movie JACK??

    • B.P

      Ummmm I Think that's 12th grade silly.

    • wokka

      no but he does look about 18 in the 12th grade imagine that

      • Billy

        Mind blown…………….

  • Brian P.

    I think it's obvious where puberty kicked in.

  • Arlette Banks
  • chance

    poor fella had the same pair of shoes in the 8th grade as he did in the 11th

    • rcorrino

      Why? Are you sure those are his only pair? It might be a favorite that he takes extra care of or wears for special photographs. Even if it is his only pair, if it still fits and is not worn out why should he buy another pair?

      His father obviously cared about him so I doubt he is poor in any way that matters….

      Unless you are just being sarcastic then ……. my bad.

  • Winston

    #10 BOOM – puberty

  • Trig

    Discovered his ball at 7! #8
