No, mine are ugly as hell! LOL...just kidding, I really think that most people do think their children are beautiful. I always remember my mother once telling me that when my son was born and I sent my family pictures that they were cracking up because my baby was so tiny, shriveled up, lopsided head and here I was looking down on him like he was the most beautiful creature ever, which to me he was. Now that I look at that picture I see their point but love totally blinds us.

I wondered about that too and when I had my first child and thought she was beautiful I wondered if it was just because she was mine, or if I would think that even if she wasn't. When I had my second child, she was not so pretty when she was first born, so I had my answer. The redness went away by the time she was two weeks old and she is beautiful now. She also hates when I tell this story, but since she is not on SparkPeople, she'll never know.
Not all children are adorable. It may be unkind, but it is true. I've seen some not so cute kids. I think that some parents are blind to flaws in their children. Some are well aware of the flaws. Just because a child isn't "beautiful" and the parent acknowledges it does not make them a bad parent. It isn't mean. It also doesn't change the way that parent feels towards their child. Children's actions are more endearing than looks. The way they do something or say something can make even an unattractive kid cute or even make an adorable kid seem bratty.
I think that my son is the cutest baby ever, as I'm sure a lot of parents feel about their kids. Its more about love than anything else though.

My second son was born with aural atresia of his right ear. No ear canal and no ear lobe. i had to force myself to look at it, but after a day i realized it wasn't hideous, it was just different. He was a pretty baby and and he is an handsome man today.
In just looks probably not. My Mom tells me a story about her sister (my aunt) when she had a boy, she told my mom "you can go see him he is on the bed, but he is an ugly baby"! My mom said he wasn't the cutest baby too, that he was really skinny and had a nose like his dads ( I imagine it wasn't a nice nose) lol. Then he became the cutest little kid. We all loved George and may he rest in peace as he passed away at afairly young age last year.

Yes... of course all parents should love their children unconditionally for who they are. But, what I'm asking is if all parents think their children are physically beautiful.
