Love is blind, especially a mother’s love!

Ever noticed how we, as mothers, think there is NO cuter kid on Earth than our own? It’s true, and it’s as it should be!

I have had this conversation with friends over and over again, how we always think our kid is cute.Β  I always say this is the case for me, but there are times when I look back at photos of my kids (especially as infants) and realize my mommy “blinders” were on at that point in time of my kids’ life.Β  Of course, at that very moment, my kids were ADORABLE! But looking back at photos I am sometimes in awe at just how freaky my kids looked at certain times in their lives.Β  I know this sounds harsh, but I gotta be honest here!
For example, here are some pictures of my 4 kids:

Terrifying, isn’t it? Throw in the ‘Psycho’ music while you look at this and imagine… It’s scary, right?!

Yes, it’s true. A mother’s love is blind!

Have you looked back at your kids’ pictures and been a little freaked out too? Or am I just a mean crazy mom?


  1. ha ha ha you're so funny. I was just looking at Ewan's little baby pics and thinking about how freaky his eyes were ha ha. At least your children grew up beautiful!

  2. All mothers thinks that their children are cute. I think yours are adorable! πŸ™‚

  3. I'm literally LOL'ing at this post. Your kids are adorable- but I know the feeling. I've done it too. Just don't tell my kid. πŸ˜‰

  4. Haha this post is refreshing. I have felt the same way at times. My youngest was a gorgeous baby, but his brother and sister weren't as lucky. Now they are all as cute as can be…just like your kids are now. πŸ™‚

  5. LOL — My daughter doesn't have many photos like that, but my son — oh my! πŸ™‚

  6. They are definitely much less alien now! Roo was actually a cute newborn, Jasper looked like a fat old man until he was two or so. Not a pretty baby!

  7. p.s. your blog looks great!

  8. Oh, I still think they look cute! Yes, they're making crazy faces, but they're adorable!

  9. lol so funny! Your babies are soo adorable!

  10. LOL – this is so funny!! But seriously, you're kids were super cute! πŸ™‚

  11. Love it and SOOO true!!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing, that was cute!

  12. You are so funny! And no, you are not alone. πŸ™‚

  13. LOL! your funny. Yes lots of babies look like aliens… I remember my nephew looked like a little alien and we have pictures of him next to Jayden and he looked kind of creepy. lol! Of course Jayden never got the Alien look, lol. Mostly because he came out looking like a 3 month old. I think babies that are smaller tend to be more alien like.

  14. Haha!! I totally Agree!! I have done the same thing to my kids! I remember posting pictures on facebook thinking that my son was WAY cuter than any other baby on the planet that had ever been posted – but now I look and I'm like… 'holy crap he's weird lookin'!
    So sad, yet true!

  15. I know what you mean! My first born was realy cute (I can say that even loking back at pictures), but then my daughter was definitely not a pretty baby, lol! she's a dorable now, but before… Yeeesh!

  16. I must be really bad… since I took pictures of my kids at times, knowing full well it was going to be a picture we looked back on and laughed at how “not cute” they were.


  1. […] since I shared a post a few days ago with pictures of my kids at their less-than-cute moment in life, I must share some […]
