I very rarely do this and I have no idea what compelled me to do it this time but goodness help me I entered a photo of Baby Girl in a cute baby contest.
Family and friends say we have cute kids, but honestly, who doesn't think that their babies aren't cute and why put them on display? I guess prizes or the bragging rights - maybe? Showing off how adorable my offspring are is at the top of the list but a contest to prove it?
I like to think that I am not competitive by nature, in fact I am a little lazy so even if I did feel compelled to enter my seriouslycutekids into any type of competition that requires popular voting they probably won't win because I will not hound my friends and relatives for votes. Maybe an email and then guilt creeps in so I don't mention it again.
I also feel that if I enter them they should win based on fair and honest voting. So they should win automatically, right?
When I was pregnant and about to go on maternity leave I had to train my temp. There is not a whole lot to my job or at least not what a temp would be doing while I was on leave. My main responsibility is to react when there is an issue and attempt to fix it. Let's just say there was a lot of opportunity for small talk and one conversation has always stuck with me.
Way to stunned to say anything I laughed and went to lunch. We all need a reminder in humility, I suppose, and whenever I need a good chuckle or think that I am getting to cute I think of her. And sure I may not be a looker but boy I think my kids might just be.
Even still, I could not resist to submit a photo that I love. She has marker on her face from putting "make-up" on and she is wearing her Lightning McQueen hat to keep her warm. I love this photo and it is not the typical cutie pie photo that everyone else submits but it suits her and I entered her.
I know she won't win. I am not committed to voting anymore than my family and friends would be but who knows, maybe this time I will hound the masses in the hopes of winning the prize pack. It sure would make her birthday shopping easier.
