Everyone, I have a confession to make. While looking through old pictures the other night, I ran across one that I found to be incredibly disturbing and have been contemplating sharing with you ever since. It's not an easy thing for me to do, but after giving it some careful thought, I've decided to come clean. Before doing so, however, I have to make an announcement. Okay, here goes...
I, Karyn Bosnak, was an ugly baby. (Cue Psycho music here.)
I thankfully straightened out by the time I was two years old or so ->, but there's no doubt in my mind that being an ugly baby scarred me in some way. Because of this, I'd like to start a support group for ugly babies everywhere. If you were an ugly baby and would like to be a member, please e-mail your name and ugly baby picture to me at mail [at] prettyinthecity.com. I'll add the pictures to this post as I get them. Thank you, and.... UGLY BABIES EVERYWHERE UNITE!
UPDATE: Ugly toddlers are welcome, too—we don't discriminate.

I, Karin McA*****, have a confession to make.. I was an ugly baby. This story, as told by my father, is quite sad. I was born in one hour. Yes, I couldn't wait to be shot out of my mother. Because of this fast entrance into the world, my face was smashed on the way out -- everything was flat and swollen. My father looked on in horror, praying that I'd have brains because he was afraid I wouldn't get anywhere in life with my looks. (Lovely what a father says about his daughter.) Luckily for me, after a few months, everything filled out. So here it is -- the ugly smashed Baby Karin. ENJOY!
