I was just walking along with ds1 and ds2 and I saw this little girl a bit younger than ds2 in a stroller, my first thought was "Oh unusual for a girl she is not very pretty" I looked up from the pram to see her parents a woman who looked about 15 and MY EX HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I should probably explain, I got married in september 2003 and in October 2005 he left me. his reasons? well he had got his leave to remain in the UK and his passport. It was not until we split I found out his father had a wife already lined up for him and had done for 6 years. SO basically he married me so he could bring her over.

I am not sure how I feel I know I have moved on and had a baby with my new partner but.....
before we split he made me go through hell and always told me he couldn't have children.

Sounds like you dodged a bullet! Think about it, you could still be stuck with him.

Oh dear Vaunda! Foot in mouth again I see...poor little girl... but you must be feeling confused as it's brought up some stuff for you.

TheLadyEvenstar Wed 01-Jul-09 17:41:52

Princess, I just didn't think she was very pretty thats all, then i saw him and realised she was his double, now while his looks are not that bad on him they didn't look right on her iyswim?

You could try using full stops instead greeny? Might look worse though grin

Oh ok, I'll take deep breaths next time, I got light headed reading it grin

TheLadyEvenstar Wed 01-Jul-09 17:43:55

Jumente he is not ugly not stunning but not ugly iyswim? and as i say while his looks suit him they looked wrong on her...maybe she will grow into them who knows, i look like my dad and his looks never looked right for me iyswim?

I suppose I could have said she looked very much like a boy rather than not very pretty lol

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:44:20

I don't get that, how can we not say someone is not very pretty or downright ugly for that matter hmm

I'm a bit of a munter, my dh with his giant nose, baldness, weak chin and grumpy face is never going to have good looking kids with me - AND????????

ugly dorks rule, right? grin

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:45:54

Does it just need cleaning? Get under it with a damp cotton bud?

cocolepew Wed 01-Jul-09 17:45:55


PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:46:42

Well you can say and think what you like, it's just a bit harsh to call a baby ugly.

TheLadyEvenstar Wed 01-Jul-09 17:46:49

Laurie LMAO I didn't say she was ugly though!!! although he has got ugly and FAT and BALD and he is only 28 or 29 lol i can't remember

PrincessToadstool Wed 01-Jul-09 17:47:20

Ugly/not very pretty - big difference?

TheLadyEvenstar Wed 01-Jul-09 17:47:36

Princess I never said she was ugly I said she was not very pretty...

Northernlurker Wed 01-Jul-09 17:49:52

Theladyevenstar - how the girl looked is totally irrelevant! Why didn't you just post to say that you seen your ex and he now has a daughter and you found this a very weird experience? We really don't need to know she has her father's nose and the fact that you're dwelling on it makes you seem rather petty tbh.

LaurieFairyCake Wed 01-Jul-09 17:50:39

Sorry, didn't mean to imply to said that - I know you said not very pretty.

I just happen to think even if you called a kid of mine ugly or 'interesting looking' I wouldn't take offense.

Who cares, surely not everyone on this board is deluded and thinks their kids are gorgeous?

In fact I've heard some mumsnetters say how ugly their baby was and how they have grown into their looks.

Greenie - this quick typing thing doesn't seem to be working out for you grin

I sometimes think - what on odd looking child; they are some huuuuge ears for such a little head; aha! proof that monobrows dont just occur with age....

It is unusual to hear someone say it - as in the op - and I do think it should remain something that is thought and not uttered(I'm just giving my examples to explain my point) but please lets not pretend that we dont think inappropriate things sometimes.

Thoughts are freeflowing, its actions and words that need to be kept in check.
