I’ve mentioned before that I’ve left Facebook behind. There were a lot of reasons behind that, and now I think I have to convince Karli to do the same.
Only with her, there’s really only one reason.
Since she’s become pregnant, it’s not uncommon for Karli to be across the room on her computer or her phone, then blurt out, “What if our baby looks like this?” Ok, it’s not that often, but occasionally. And it’s always the baby of someone we don’t know.
That seems to be her number one fear. Not autism or Downs syndrome or cystic fibrosis. Ugly.*
*This is exaggerating. She’s not actually worried about it at all. My wife is not superficial. Please don’t think that.
I can’t blame her. I know babies are supposed to be cute and all, but sometimes I see one and confuse it for a bulldog. That’s not healthy, I don’t think.
I calm her down by telling her we can make money in ugly baby contests. They have those, right?
