     Because we see someone else that has something we want and we strive to improve ourselves to have whatever it is we longed for. Its like a competition almost.

    My MIL and the whole family is far more worried about looks and apperances. I hate it. I like to look nice too but I don't worry about it like they do. My husbad has argued with me over our sons gloves. They are blue and have grips on them that look like a monster. He says that the grips go on the top of the hand (not the side you grab with). I told him no, they are grips so he can grab things. He said we should (and his mom would) still put them on the top b/c it looks better. Silly. Looks aren't that important. the other day he was uphappy b/c I let the kids color with markers before going to his parents house. He said it looks like we are bad parents b/c our toddlers hands had marker on them. I asked what makes us bad parents? That we let our kids have fun and be creative? It is not like there was marker all over his face and stuff just some that didn't wash off of his hand well, he was in no way "dirty".

    I think this is a good answer.

    Quoting BabyTeki:

    Because with our high level of technology anymore, the media is constantly right in our face.

    Honestly I try to avoid the camera and post mostly pictures of my kiddos on my FB page.  I don't really like looking at myself in the mirror either.
