This is going to sound really mean but my husband's nieces are really not cute. Their cute by what they do and say but looks wise it's another story. One didn't get hair until she was three years old and looks like Charlie Brown, the other always gets mistaken for a boy. I just hope they didn't get their looks from the my husband's blood or my kid is in trouble! I know I am going to h__l for thinking this but I can't help it. Not all kids are cute.

You are so heartless. While they may not be cute to you, they are probably adorable to many others. Your opinion is the only one that counts? Are you serious? Those children are the apple of the eye to their parents. I only pray that your kids will fit your "standards." Why dont you stop worrying about how your future children look and worry about their health and your ability to raise them without prejudice toward others.

In addition, have you see a child with burns over 80% of his/her body? Do you judge them on their looks rather than their heart and strength? Thats not their fault as much as being born to "unfortunate blood." I am appalled and angry that people actually think this way about our beautiful children!!!

I see where you are comig from. I know it is terrible to even think that way, but it is something you can't help...the way you think. I would love my child no matter what. Missing an arm, down's syndrome, any of that. Like the fact hat I have a long nose and my fiance has a wide nose. I was so afraid that our child would be born with this great big huge nose. People would still live him. He would eventually get married, I would definately love him, blah blah blah, but I was still so unbelievably happy when he came out with tan skin instead of my pale skin and a cute little b___ton nose. Perhaps I shouldn't be happy that he is absolutley adorable, but I am. What can I say.

It has something to do with the fact that life is just easier if you don't look that different from others. I would be heartbroken if my child had terrible burns. But not because I want him to look good for me, because I know it is easier to be happy when you don't have insecurities like that to overcome. People would watch him as he walked by and that would break my heart, becasue I know it would be breaking his. I feel bad for kids like that because of the things I know they will have to deal with because of really narrow minded people.

Misty- its great that you think your child is absolutely adorable. However, I am betting that the parents of the kids being talked about in this post think they are absolutely adorable too. Who thinks they have an "ugly child?" I hope nobody.

exactly- narrow minded people.

Hey I am just being honest. Anyone who says all babies and infants are cute and wonderful is lying. We've all seen that one ugly baby and thought that it didn't look like it came from the same parents. I wasn't denying what I was saying was mean but at least I can be honest. I am not talking about children with health problems.

Very true. A mother's love is a mother's love. I think if there was something look wise with my child though that s/he would get seriously picked on for I would notice and I would feel bad. It really might be wrong of me to feel that way. But that is how it is. I can truly say that I don't ever look down on anybody for how they look because I got teased a lot in middle school and I know how bad it hurts. I never want to make anyone feel that way, and I never want my child to feel that way either. But he will probably get picked on either way it goes, I just figure if the looks are o.k. that is one hurdle he never has to jump over. This is probably coming out so wrong. I will most likely get chewed up one side and down the other for it, but I can't help it. I want my kid to have every advantage possible. Even beyond just looks, I want them to be smart too. I would still love my child unconditionally if it had any mental defects, but I just really want it to have every advantage that it possibly can.

you are very heartless.

Misty that's kinda how I feel. I understand that children have a goofy looking phase when they're growing up. I just can't help but look at our nieces and hope my baby doesn't look as goofy as they do. I am not going to love my child any less no matter what.

I know what you mean. I don't think your heartless. It's like when you see a celebrity's child and wonder how they came out looking that way. (look at the Clinton's daughter Chelsy)People have a right to tell the truth. Just don't ever let it get back to your husband or your niece's parents!

 

Misty - May 12

It sounds so incredibly mean to say it. But I won't deny that I want my child to look good so that nobody ever looks at it and thinks.....like you are thinking. The world is a tough place and i don't wish my child to have to go through any more difficulties then it must. I can trluy say that I don't think I am narrow minded, but many people are and I don't want my child to deal have to deal with them. Perhaps it is narrow minded of me just to say that. You know I really don't know. Until now I have never a___lyzed this, now that I am I find it very confusing.

but you have no control over it. Just like health problems. Thats why its similar. I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a mother thinks her child is beautiful. It must be horrible to think someone may be calling your child ugly to thousands of other people. Your the one you are trying to protect against. You dont want your child to be ridiculed? Start by not calling other helpless children ugly. People like you are the cause of the problem you are trying to protect your child from. Ironic, huh?

I know what you mean. Sometimes good looking parent make really not cute kids. Look at Demi Moore, and Bruce Willis...I think their girls are all funny looking. It's mean but oh well...just being honest. I've seen really beautiful babies come from two not so good looking parents as well...it's just how the jeans mix.

 

rachel - May 12

my god, what is wrong with you people? these are children!!

 

Emily - May 13

Aparently no one can be honest. If my child is not ridiculed about their looks they will be ridiculed about their height, weight, or something else. It only makes them stronger.Kinda ironic how it works uh? I understand that kids will find something to tease about. I just hope my child doesen't look like Charlie Brown. If you don't like what I express go to a diffrent thread. At least I will teach my child to be honest and say what's on their mind instead of what they want everyone to hear.
