It all began with an owl hat, “Well, I got this hat from my father and step-mother for my daughter Ella’s first birthday and I put it on the dog, because I thought it would be entertaining to dress my dog up like a child. And he was not impressed with this choice.”

However, a couple of days later while she was digging through a drawer, Jesse found these glasses that used to belong to her grandfather, “I have pictures of a whole bunch of family members putting on these glasses, so I had to do it again with my kid and my dog. And then I kind of got hooked on coming up with different scenarios to put them in, where they sort of mirrored each other. And off it went.”

“But I kept getting comments from my circle of friends and so later down the road I decided to post some of them to Bored Panda and that’s when things just exploded.”
