All Babies are cute! So can we move on, please!

Something that annoys me all too much is people’s reaction to baby photos on social media.

“OHH MY GOD!!! HE’S SO ADORABLE” goes a screech.

“WHAT A PRECIOUS LITTLE THING!” says your distant aunt.

“AWWWWWW! SO CUTE!!!” says almost every teenage girl. (just for indication purposes, I don’t usually stereotype :P)

“SHE’S DIVINE!” says your overly religious grandfather.

Well, all of the above things may be true. But I don’t understand the need to get so excited each time we come across a baby photo. It’s not like we found a cute baby photo after a string of not-so-cute ones. Every baby is cute and beautiful and precious. So then, why can’t we just accept this fact and move on. I might sound like a crazy man right now, talking rubbish. And you might be thinking, what’s wrong with him? But sorry, sometimes people’s reaction to stuff like this does drive me crazy. It’s like, I get it but why are you making such a fuss about it!

And then there are some parents who feel the need to share their child’s photographs in all postures  and situations for the entire world to see. I understand if you want to take photos for your own personal collection. To capture that memory. I’m someone who would do it too. But no, I don’t want to see a photograph of your kid riding the merry-go-round. Or snuggled inside a blanket. And please, no closeups of your kid’s face next to a flower. Thank you very much.

I guess the point I’m trying to make is that there are no ugly babies; heck even animal babies are cute and sometimes even more than human babies. The internet is riddled with kittens and puppies so I will say no more of them but have you seen a baby porcupine?

A baby platypus?

Or a baby elephant?

Or even a baby snake!

Okay, I agree, the last one is more scary than cute. But still, you can’t call it ugly!

So do you see now? There’s nothing special about a cute baby because cute is the way it is meant to be. So the next time you come across something cute, appreciate in silence. If you have to, that is.

  1. I tend to ignore all the baby photos I see on my FB Timeline.. I don’t even hit like on them even if they are from one of my closest friends.. :3 They know I find them pretentious -_-

  2. This post made me laugh! I share your sentiments and all my friends who have young relatives or babies just post about them all the time. Sometimes I just want to say enough. It’s like yes, I know their cute but can you stop now. Glad I’m not the only one who thinks this.

  3. Well said. Facebook would be a better place without teenagers going “Awww” over every cute photo of babies, flowers and teddy bears. Nowadays I’m noticing people are sharing photos of their own childhood.

  4. I think people feel obliged to say a baby is cute. What can you do when the mother is standing there with her child’s photo out waiting for a response? Uh yah… He’s okay. Not good. I personally think all babies are pretty ugly. For the first few weeks that is. Then I’m a sucker for a cute face, be it animal or human.
