This is hilarious. It shouldn't be, because it's inherently obvious, but apparently that obviousness dissipates in the mind (of those to whom it formerly was quite clear) when a person becomes a parent. Maybe the picture will help :).
This saddens me for a number of reasons. But I want you to know that there are real children who have deformities not too different from this depiction. This meme, making the statement that it does, basically asserts that such children are repulsive.http://reecesrainbow.org/1585/owen-egxb-3
I love seeing pictures of other people's children. I did while struggling with infertility and I do now. Not to appreciate the beauty of a child unless that child is your own? What a curse. Seems kind of selfish to only appreciate the "cuteness" of kids if you've got your own.
You took a risk posting this humorous meme (is that what they call them? Memes?) where people who don't know you will be quick to rush to negative judgements about you. Obviously I know better, after sharing my pregnancy, the birth of your Godson, and many, many photos with you each week, and seeing/knowing where your heart is by how you are with us. It's so, so, so completely the opposite of a curse or selfishness, I assure you "Anonymous". I've been amazed and inspired at her ability to keep finding humor in little things even when dealing with more crap simultaneously than most of us will have to deal with over a long lifetime. The ability to laugh over silly thoughts like this one, that touch upon painful emotions and put an unexpectedly funny spin on it, is a real gift. No need to read too much in to it and try to shame her for it as though sharing this laugh means she doesn't love others as she ought to. SHE DOES - unselfishly, every single day. Laughter is therapeutic. Enjoy it whenever it creeps up on you.
