Let’s face it, ALL BABIES ARE NOT CUTE. There I said it. I mean it too. I even felt this way about a couple kids of my own. I think all babies go through an ugly phase. I KNOW mine did.
I wasn’t in denial, but I had hope. Hope that I couldn’t produce such an ugly human being, and this too shall pass.
What is even funnier is when people would tell me my baby was cute, I would say, “No she’s not, she’s going through a phase right now. No need for lies.” With a straight face. They would look at me like I was pure crazy!
What I was, was pure honest.
I always wondered if people with ugly babies REALIZED their baby was UGLY? Can a mother’s/father’s love really be so deep, they’re blinded by the obvious?!
Now don’t take this the wrong way. Just the other day I was teaching my now 5 year old daughter about how beauty is within and not what the eye can see. However, to myself, I know that sometimes people with beautiful personalities and souls still can be a little hard on the eyes.
When I see an ugly baby, I won’t lie to the parent and say, “Awwwww, he/she is so cute” or “Awww how adorable!” I hit them with a pure, “Awwwwwww.” That’s it. My honest Abe self won’t allow me to lead people along with false pretenses.
On a brighter note, like I said, my daughter went through a phase, because now she is just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside!
