I'm sure that the moms who share these links are of a different opinion, though. They must be completely convinced that they are sharing the cutest thing ever with the world. The phrases “a face only a mother could love” or "love is blind" come too mind. While too harsh for my liking (kids are cute), they do point to a mom’s subjectivity about her children.
But rose-colored glasses should be part of the parental territory. We should think our kids are great, mamas. No need to apologize for wanting to show off our kids every now and then, especially when it doesn't sink to the level of Toddlers and Tiaras.
We are hardwired for unconditional love, and rightly so. This truism doesn't necessarily mean that everyone else (besides friends and family) are obliged to drink the go-go juice and/or wants to be subjected to our unique brand of maternal madness.
So it’s tricky. On the one hand, I am completely sure that the link I’m about to share is the cutest thing ever. On the other, it’s also quite possible that I am wearing a big, ol’, honking pair of mommy blinders the size of Honey Boo-Boo's hairdo.
You’ll let me know, won’t you?
P.S. This video is of my daughter using a microphone for the first time. I find it hilarious (and cute) because of her preferred word choice, which is peppered throughout both this video and our daily conversations, as well as being oh, so, quintessentially toddler.
P.P.S. You don’t have to watch the whole thing (not that you need my permission not to anyway). Watch and listen until around twenty seconds or so. I find the rest to be cute, but I'm Claire's mom. You may just find it regular cute.
