An Irrational Parenting Fear.
I'm assuming it's a relatively normal thing as a parent to feel like your child is beautiful.
I may be biased, but I really do think Jack is an EXCEPTIONALLY cute baby.
It cannot be denied.
But I have a confession to make.
I REALLY really did not want him to get teeth.
I mean, once he started teething... I wanted those suckers out
Just for the sake of mine and Bubba's sanity
Homeboy was GRUMPY.
But in general, I didn't want him to have teeth.
I was scared it would ruin everything.
And by everything, I mean his adorableness.
This is extremely vain, I know.
But I felt like teeth would take him from adorable little baby to Chucky in zero point two seconds.
So the bottom ones poked through.
I was nervous.
But really - they weren't so bad!
They were cute even...
Then - the top two started poking out.
I had fear in my heart.
Here comes Chucky!
But, ALAS! I think Bubba is EVEN CUTER (is that possible?!)
Okay, maybe just to me.
I love those little teeth and the personality that has come along with them.
I love that Bubba grins from ear to ear showing off those pearly whites.
I love that he has the freedom to eat new and different foods because he has those teeth.
In all seriousness, I am grateful that he is a happy healthy little boy.
But am I the only parent in the world that feared their child would be LESS cute with teeth?
Anyone else have vain, irrational parenting fears?!
Just me? Okay... just keep a lookout for us on Toddlers and Tiaras in 3 years.
Bubba will be the one in the bedazzled tuxedo.. with flippers in :)
