Not all kids look like they stepped out of a Johnson & Johnson or Gerber commercial, that’s for sure. But I often wonder, if I were to have an ugly kid, would I be able to tell? Or would my unconditional, all-encompassing love for them skew my perspective, leading me to believe that my slimy frog-looking baby would actually have a chance at a Welsh’s commercial?
I used to think all parents found their children absolutely perfect, but boy was I wrong. People have taken to venting on reddit threads about the moment they realized they had a truly hideous child, and they really don’t sugarcoat it at all. These stories will have you laughing on the floor.
“I felt kind of bad for the kid…”
“I gasped in the delivery room. It was so bad.”
“He has handled it really well.”
“Like a cross between a monkey and a frog.”
Our “tiny grumpy Churchill.”
“We were SHOCKED at how weird she looked.”
“He got uglier.”
“A month after he was born, something happened.”
“I better make enough money to pay for plastic surgery for this one.”
“My son is hideous.”
“WTF is that?”
Interesting strategy, doctor.
“There’s no way to sugarcoat it”
“I know our son is ugly but I was hoping my wife wouldn’t notice.”
“But, all babies look like squashed apples.”
