PARENTS SURE DO LIKE TO SHOW OFF THEIR KIDS

I have noticed that many parents like to show off their little ones. Wether it be by taking many pictures and uploading them. Or video taping them and putting it on the internet. Or carrying around professionally done photos to show off to people. Or putting their kids in pageants. Or trying to get them on tv. Always trying to show their little bundles of joy (and many other things) off! And the US, of all places, offers many opportunities to do so.

Why do you think that is? And what do you honestly think about the different methods people use to show their kiddo's off? Do you enjoy showing yours off? If so, how do you go about doing it? What crazy methods have you seen people use to show off their 'pride and joy'?

I will honestly admit that I love to show of my son's photos on my facebook and getting to see all my family and friends comments. I am quite proud of how cute he is. Aren't we all when it comes to that? Or are you not?

Go ahead and tear this apart... let me know how you truly feel on this subject...

Why wouldn't people want to show off their children? I don't show them off to strangers much, but I'm always showing pictures to family, friends and co-workers. I lover my children and I'm proud off them so why not show off and brag a little bit.

This.  I am proud of my boys and love to show them off.  They're really funny too, so once in a while I'll post something they've said on fb.

I think it's kind of like "look what I did/made. For most people, having kids is their greatest accomplishment.

I like to post pics to my facebook and I used to post them on here (I don't anymore). I don't really agree with the pageants and movies/commercials because it's making them do unnecessary things to suit your own needs. That's just me though..

Pride!! And why the hell not?  They are afterall the best damn thing we've produced as a mother.  They are hard as hell to bring into this world and even harder to raise.  Why not show them off with pride?

I love showing my kids off because they are great sports about letting me do random photoshoots of them. And they are adorable!
