Ugly: Parents Are the Last to Know

Gorgeous!

Gorgeous!

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.
