Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Are you JEALOUS of kids that are better looking than yours?? **ETA**

Please do not respond with "All moms think their baby is the most beautiful!"  I think all babies are cute, I'm mainly talking children 12 months and older. I know all moms look at their kids and think they're adorable, but some part of them has to be able to recognize if another child is prettier/more handsome. Do you secretly feel jealous when you see a child the same age as yours that is obviously better looking?? Not that you would ever SAY anything to your child, or let them know you felt that way, but some kids just ARE cuter than others.

ETA** The reason I am asking is b/c of a recent situation involving my dd, her friend and the other girl's mom.  The mom is always kind of rude to me, very short and unfriendly, even towards dd, even though her daughter is good friends with mine.  I have always wondered why b/c I've been nothing but nice to her. My dh knows her husband pretty well, and he told me that recently she had confided in him how beautiful she thinks my dd is, and how jealous she is that hers isn't as pretty. (These are her words.) I was shocked b/c I've never felt "jealous" of another child and sad that she would think her dd is anything less than gorgeous. I mean, honestly I knew my dd was "cuter" than hers, but who cares really. And who cares enough to be mean to me about it!!

No because my DD is so fun and quirky there's no one else like her. Besides the fact that she is absolutely gorgeous .......
