Let me start by saying my boys are perfect to me in every way. I love them fussy pants and all. I think they are the cutest babies ever to be born (I know I am biased) and I wouldn't change them for the world. So why does it bother me when people ask me about Hudson's birthmarks. It certainly doesn't bother me that he has two strawberry birthmarks (Hemangioma), in fact they make him unique and himself so I love them. I just hate being asked about them constantly. I know it is such a silly complaint and there are parent's who have children with serious physical disfigurements so I don't want to minimize their struggle. I just think it is so rude to comment on them. I would never ask questions or comment on anyones appearance unless they asked. Yes I compliment outfits and haircuts but I would never point out any anomalies. That is why when I am constantly being bombarded with rude people asking what caused them and why he has them I get annoyed. I worry that he will be self conscious of them and in turn his self esteem will be impacted. Hubby assured me that boys aren't as sensitive and I have nothing to worry about. I definitely don't want him to sense my annoyance when people ask because that might make him think there is something to be ashamed of I just have to note how gross I think people are (kids excluded). It even further annoys me when they tell me he is still cute despite them. Um people, they are just freakin birthmarks. I just want to point out their flaws (big nose, fat ass etc) and ask them why they have them and what caused them. I know I am being petty but don't mess with my kids people.
Just had to vent.
