Ugly: Parents Are the Last to Know

August 13th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized



As the birth of my second child nears, I’m forced to confront the reality that babies are, in fact, hideously ugly. No point in denying it–little raisin-things covered in poop, screaming at high volumes, clutching the air with sweat-covered claws. It’s not pretty. The only relief comes in knowing that as a parent you will the only one who won’t notice. To you, that bruised up little prune-football is gorgeous, honey–simply to die for!

In that vein, I give you this from the New York Times, selections of ugly pet photos from their readers.

Pets/kids–same, same but different.
