Instead of studying tonight, I started blog surfing. It seems that most blogs out there are for families to post pictures of their kids on, and especially for people who've just had babies. Strangely enough, I've come across a lot of blogs about people who are infertile. It doesn't seem like something I'd blog about, but whatever floats your boat. Oh, and along with the baby blogs, it seems like all the other ones are Asian teenagers, mostly girls.

I am not a part of any of these qualifiers. Should I stop blogging?...

At any rate, I've learned a few things.

One of my biggest fears is that I'll have ugly kids. Qualities I hope my children don't have:

1) Razor teeth. Some kids just look like they could rip you to shreds and eat you alive. Those kids scare the crap out of me.

2) Big heads. Some kids have the most gigantic heads! And tiny little bodies. It's just not right.

3) As a subset of 2, I hope my babies don't have weirdly shaped heads. Some babies have the sideways cone head, or gigantic protruding foreheads...this one isn't as important cuz some kids grow out of that, but...yeah.

Ok so maybe I'm a little harsh. I just want cute kids. It's kind of a crapshoot, really. Some of the most beautiful people I know have the ugliest kids, and vice versa.

And I'm pretty sure I'm just saying things that all of you are thinking, you just don't want to say. But that's what I'm good at.

Brooklyn! You're completely wrong!

You WANT ugly babies. Why do you think beautiful people have ugly babies? Because those ugly babies turn into beautiful people! We've seen it time and time again. Cute babies always turn into ugly people and ugly babies become hot.

How do you not know this?

This post was oddly appropriate. Just last night I was expressing the same concern. I realized I was a respecter of person when it came to kids because there is a family out here with really cute kids that I like to play with. But then I realized I don't get any points for that because their kids are like the perfect little cute kids that you see. Same with my nephews. So yeah... I was thinking about that last night.

Also I am in dental school studying for a dental anatomy exam. And interestingly enough we are studying baby teeth on this exam. Aaaand, now that you mention it, let me quote to you from my "Tooth Atlas" on the anatomy of the primary mandibular first molar:

"Because of the form of the cusp ridges, the occlusal outline form presents a sort of serrated shape".

So yeah, you're totally right. I should probably get back to studying.

I know. There's no return policy for children, so if you have ugly ones, you're kind of stuck with them

Thank you, Gabe! People never believed me about the razor teeth...and now you've given me scientific documentation.

Take that, unbelievers! :)
