Thought of the Day – 6/28/2013 – Your Baby So Ugly

28 Jun

Here’s a thought that’s been bouncing around in my head for a while:

Do you think there are parents out there who look at their babies and think “Gosh, my baby’s kinda homely lookin.”?

I ask this not to be mean (or because I have encountered any ugly babies recently*).  I’m asking honestly and sincerely.

*Seriously, your baby is very cute.  Just not as cute as mine.

Not at all relevant, but it cracks me up.

Look:  I truly, honestly believe that my daughter and my son are the cutest kids in the history of children.  They were extremely cute babies, and they get cuter every day.  My guess is that most parents feel the same way about their babies.

But I also truly, honestly believe that there are some uggo babies out there (again – not your kids.  So very beautiful!)  Do their parents look at them and truly, honestly believe they are the absolute cutest babies around?  Or do they have a spot, deep down in the depths of their unconditionally loving heart where they think “I sure hope this kid is smart/rich/good at sports, because looks won’t be enough.”

    I was pretty convinced I was gonna get a smack from karma for all the private mocking I did of parents convinced their children were *the cutest* while I myself was a teen. It always struck me as so odd when it was pretty clear their child was average at best. Now that I have two of my own I think cutest takes on a different meaning, it’s not they are imperially the cutest but in being mine they become the cutest. 😉
