“Oh she’s so cute. Look at her. She’s going to be bad, look at her. I can tell.” ~stranger

On more than one occasion strangers have felt the need to share this theory with me regarding my daughter. She’s only 6 months now and I’ve been hearing it since she was at least two months.

Looks can be deceiving. That’s what I believe anyway. Especially when it comes to my child. Even if people believe that she’s going to be trouble. They claimed she’s got that look in her eyes. Of course, I don’t believe any of that. I look at her and see my little angel. Beyond that, she’s a BABY! Why do people feel the need to look into the future and share this rubbish?

I guess that’s just not something I could see myself telling someone about their baby. I’ve never seen a baby, only a few months old, that looks “bad”. Now when they get older, yeah, I’ve seen a little something. I still don’t think I would tell somebody that about their child. Is it just me? Have you ever just seen the bad in a baby?

  1. no, it’s not just you. somehow the word ”bad” has come to mean ”cute” when it comes to babies. i’m not one to use the term in that context. anyone with a brain can look at that adorable little girl and see she has a bright future ahead of her. if someone else makes that remark – tell em i said go to h#ll! 🙂

  2. She is a cutie pie! I will never understand strangers…for instance a lady today called my baby a girl…then said he was a happy baby and probably slept good? Say what? How in the world would you get that if he just smiled at you. Cray-cray!

  3. Maybe they take it mean she has a little sparkle in her eye! I’ve heard people say such things about Nia from a really young age and oh boy is she very much full of personality! I have to say your daughter is one of the cutest babies I have ever seen – she’s baby fever inducing 😉

  4. People are stupid, but I think usually this kind of comment is simply ignorance. Bad means good and “keep a shotgun” is supposed to be funny. Whatever. SHE IS GORGEOUS. And her face aint got nothing to do with whether she winds up behaving LIKE A NORMAL CHILD.

  5. It is AMAZING how people lose their filter when it comes to pregnancy, motherhood, and parenting in general. I mean, seriously?!? I think your angel looks like a doll. Those eyes and cheeks and sweet smile are adorable. If she were mine I would have an awful hard time telling her “no.” Ha! Happy New Year to you and yours!!!

  6. Oh my, she is cute!
    People say that about my youngest all the time.
    But in her case, I see it too. And they are so right about her! But I don’t mind, she’s a little rascal that looks like an angel.. Oh well.

  7. Hi Cam, this is crazy! First off she looks like an angel, too precious! Second, ppl have no tact! I never make unsolicited comments on children unless they are positive, that’s a soft spot. Maybe I missed it, but what’s your book? I have some similar to do’s on my before 40 list too. Thx for stopping by today.

    • Thank you! And thanks for stopping by! I need to take another glance at my 40 list. I have some new goals to set. The book is poetry. It’ll be launched later this year. 🙂

  8. Cam, Some people don’t have any home training or morals. Thank God I was raised with them. I would never say that. But I am old school and I remember back in the day when people would say that is a bad dress you got on. I never said that but I would and will still say that is a sharp dress you got on. Your daughter is beautiful and your son is handsome and thats what you pour into them. I know you are already.

  9. OMG!!!! Camesha, she is adorable. there’s nothing bad about that little Shuga mama. when ppl don’t know what to say, they say anything. kiss her for ur cousin.
