25 of the Most Hilarious Recreated Childhood Photos (PHOTOS)

Something magical happened when I became a mother.

I became more compassionate. I don’t know what it is about having children that enables you to see the child in grown adults but it happens. Even when the most hardened of criminals garner headlines I wonder about them as a child. That person was a sweet, little baby once, I think to myself.

I feel the same thing when I look at the photos hundreds of people are posting online where they’ve recreated a childhood photo of themselves and with parents and siblings. In one glance you’re able to see the baby someone used to be. Some photos are quite touching and others are just plain hilarious.

It’s kind of a bummer that, as adults, we can’t roam around in public in our underpants or eat a cake without utensils. We should all try to do that a little more. It would do us some good.

I spent the day compiling the most hilarious of these childhood photo recreations for your viewing pleasure. The more accurate, the more humorous. Check ‘em out.
