i need to know. do people know when they have kids that aren't cute? i mean seriously. i'd like to think that if i had a not cute kid, i would realize it. it's not like i would love the kid less if it wasn't cute- but i just think i'd know. and in this knowing, i wouldn't post pictures of said not cute kid daily on my blog for y'all to look at. does everyone just automatically think their kid is the cutest kid in the world??? seriously. i'm so curious. is there anyone reading this blog who thinks their kid is just "okay" or does every mom/dad think their kid rocks in the looks department?
here is my kid drooling. isn't that adorable? ooh, here it is sucking up the drool! awwww, precious right? here it is playing in the drool! so talented!
even if the kid is freaking adorable, do you really want to see that many pictures of a kid that isn't yours? honestly? does everyone in blogland care that much about someone else's kid, that they honestly would like to see multiple pictures everyday of said kid? i am asking because sometimes i really feel like i'm the only mom out there who doesn't really give a shit. i'd rather see pictures of someone's puppy than their kid. fine fine...that's not entirely true, but still. i just don't get off on seeing someone's child everyday. the kid looks the same as it did the day before. and the day before that. and that. and so on. i love seeing pics every now and then, but the daily one? i guess i just feel like it's overload. and kind of, what the hell is the point?
why do i feel like this is purely a "jennster" thing and i'll be alone in my thinking on this one?
maybe it's because i define myself as so much more than just blake's mom. maybe it's because i choose to be more self absorbed, than blake absorbed. who knows? all of this could change when i have another baby and i'm starting over, and freaking out. then before you know it, all i'm posting is baby shit and daily not cute baby pictures! then y'all can call me a hypocrite and well, that will be fun for everyone!
ps- this post is not talking about ANYONE who reads this blog. i promise you i am not referring to your child. i cannot emphasize that enough.
