Most of you will have noticed in pictures that I have posted that my youngest daughter has a large 'strawberry' birth mark under her eye. I was at first really upset about it. None of my other children have had any birth marks and I was devastated that my beautiful daughter hears nothing but, "poor baby, what is THAT under her eye?" People are jerks. Inconsiderate jerks. I'm over it now, but, I still think people are jerks.
I recently had her pictures done and I was excited to share them with the family and a few friends in an online album. My mother called today to say that a.) she thanks me for sharing the pictures b.) the baby is beautiful, and c.) why in the hell had I not paid extra to have that nasty thing airbrushed out?
I chose not to have that nasty thing airbrushed out because I love my daughter just the way she is. I also want her and my other children to know that I love her, and each of them just the way they are. I don't see any nasty things when I look at my baby. I see my daughter. Beautiful, little, amazing, and perfect.
So, please tell me bloggy pals...would you have had anything airbrushed?
