“Congratulations, it’s a . . . . baby.”
Let’s start this post with getting one simple fact out of the way. Clear the air, so to speak. Here we go (deep breath!): Not all babies are cute.
It’s not a popular sentiment, and some people will never dare admit it, but come on. Denial is healthy for no one.
Anyhow, now that we have that out of the way, I have a theory to share. I believe that adorable babies have no chance of being attractive adults.
Cute babies, and even VERY cute babies . . . sure. They can ostensibly grow up to be very pretty people. It is the ADORABLE babies that end up weird-looking.
“Why?”, you ask?
Well, the very features that we prize in babies – short, wide faces, huge eyes, small, pouty mouths – don’t exactly grow and stretch when the rest of the child does. When the head grows, and the body stretches, the disproportionate scale which works in their favor during their youth – that pushes them over the boundaries of cute, into the “Awwwwwwwwww!” territory – turns on them.
It’s just a theory at this point. You may feel free to try and prove me wrong. But so far, I stand by it.
