There’s a lot to learn about your parents when you look back at old photographs. Sometimes you discover things about them that you never knew, such as hobbies or fashion sense. Or sometimes you learn that they have a hidden talent. Forgive us for getting sentimental, but photo albums are truly treasures that capture moments from the past! Finding out these things about our parents can often be amusing to us, but sometimes they can be entirely revolutionary about the way we see Mom and Dad. One thing’s for sure; the more we learn about our parents’ lives before we were born, the more surprised we are. These people were so excited to find these old photos of their parents, they had to share them online and show off!
#1: A Pet Lion
Kids love animals, and almost every child wants to be a veterinarian at some point. It’s only natural to want to be around cute puppies and kitties all day! While most kids grow out of that phase, some children get their animal fix another way: they have a parent who’s a vet!
This boy got to live every child’s dream through his cool mom. Not only was his mom a vet, meaning they got to be around animals all the time, but she also brought home a lion cub for a pet! How cool is that? He says that she brought home this lion cub in 1959, and they were fortunate enough to raise it for two years.
