Ugly Babies

We’ve all seen em. Some just garden variety ugly, some syndromic, some true craniofacial disordered. But what to say? I think my favorite is “oh he’s so alert!” or to comment on whatever cute toy is tucked into the stroller. But my go to pharse “what big brown/blue/green eyes he has!” was blown out of the water today by a mom who casually replied “yeah, they’re fake, but they fool everyone. Totally worth the two grand co-pay.”
