Every day on Facebook somebody else is saying "please vote for my son/daughter/niece/neighbours great god child five times removed in x competition". Surely the point is to vote for who you think the worthy winner should be or it is an empty victory and just means you have more Facebook friends?!
YANBU I don't understand baby competitions at all. My son is still nestled in my uterus at the minute, but I can tell you right now with no questions asked that he is the most adorable, beautiful 22 week old foetus in the history of mankind.
Once he's out, I will not need a competition to tell me that the situation remains the same.
I entered DS1 in a competition because the prizes were worth it and I was really skint at the time but it was done on votes and I was a Billy no mates not that well connected. So he didn't win. But he was the cutest kid in the contest regardless of who got the prizes!
