to just keep my yap shut.

I have a friend who's 16 yr old son got his gf prego.Moving on the boy is now 6mo or so old.
Most folks think their kid ,,,grandkid is just the cutest baby ever..

BUT this kid is not at all cute..He has the biggest head I have even seen on a baby.He looks like a elf to me. I know thats bad right???

She ,,, the grandma ... is all the time asking me & other ppl to vote on sites she enters him in as the cutest kid etc..  


I have not... I do not want to offend her so I kindof ignore the whole thing.She keeps asking did you vote did you vote.

So this morning I lied & said yes... Hope I don't go to hell..........

Go with your gut.

I do NOT contribute money for any kid who wants to take a trip somewhere unless they are the ones out performing services or some sort of fund raiser. When our oldest was in high school she wanted to go to Europe on a student study tour (aka: high school vacation with teacher chaperones). She helped with the garage sales, cookie sales, candy sale, etc. to earn the money to go. No one, not even her grandparents and aunts & uncles, were asked for 'contributions' to her trip expenses. Dane & I, however, scrimped and saved for over a year to afford the $$ for her to go.

As for the 'un-cute' baby. I usually just say something like, "oh, a BABY...." without a commitment about physical atributes. You could comment on the outfit the kid is wearing or the props....just don't exclain, "HOLY CRAP ~ THAT IS ONE UGLY BABY !!", because that, of course, would be considered rude of you....

When I was born, Mom said I was 9 lb. 11 ozs. Mom said she swore, 9 lbs. of me was all head! LOL...........
I was bald like Yule Brynner for like 14 months. Completely bald. Thank God my rest of my body grew enough to be normal in size.
When I did get hair, I got a lollypop stuck in it so bad, that mom had to cut the hair to unstick it.
I have that lollypop in a scrapbook that mom saved for us kids.
My first tooth that I lost (Temporary teeth) is in a square pill box in a piece of cotton and I have it in my night stand!.

OH! BTW.... There was a contest in the hospital where I was born, and I won Mom a prize, for having the most perfectly round HEAD!

A 16 year old going to Madagascar? Has anyone broken the news to him that his life, as he knew it, is forever changed with the arrival of that child? He is now an adult with adult responsibilities, such as the support of that child. $3500 for a trip to Africa? It should be put aside for diapers. And your friend is no friend.

Yeah!....Poor Mom all right!.... and they didn't have KY back then either.

No wonder why she waited to have brother 4 years later.
