Okay maybe I just don't get it but....
On one of the other boards I visit there's a place where mamas post pix of their little darlings, and most of the time the pictures are cute.
Ever so often in the midst of genuinely cute photos, the "food and drool" shots creep in there and the moms are quite "Lookit how precious my shnookums is!" Um...No. How is disgusting vomit-like food smeared all over his/her face and hair and clothing, cute?
I'm sorry but I think it's gross. Always have. Even with my local niece and nephew and I adore them -- they are really very cute kids -- but the cutest kid looks gross when it has smashed food crap smeared all over its face, or an open mouth showcasing chewed goo.
Why do some parents think that's cute? It's not. It's nauseating...my out of town SIL has always sent us pix of our nephew with vomit-y looking food smeared all over his face and I think it's disgusting. Am I alone in this? Am I just some sort of bizarre prude? (If so, I married another bizarre prude because my DH can't even look at those kinds of photos -- he says they make him carsick.)
Does parenthood really make you *that* incredibly blind?
Just curious...and bored (and I just got another little shnookums email with my nephew coated in some sort of gelatinous goo and it made my stomach turn -- which is a shame because there were some perfectly cute shots of him not coated in drool).
