or does anyone else cringe when people proudly display their pics up here?

I'm gonna get shot for this i know.

Just what is the purpose other than for people to go awwww ooooooh arent they cute.

Which nice people are always gonna say whether they're cute or not, and horrible people like me are always gonna ignore.

No, I don't cringe. If you can't be proud of your darlings here then where can you?

I bet your darling(s) are cute too! go on, show us ...

I am proud of my very cute dd but don't feel a need to post a pic of her up here!

Think it also stems from not wanting pics of her on internet also.

fair enough, my DS is cute too and I can't be bothered to resize his pics . . .

Because I like showing them off

You don't have to look if you don't want to - but I bet you all do anyway

I agree, Fran. I'll run for the hills now.

I like to look at pictures. I feel like I know a few people on here and it is nice to put a picture to the name iyswim. I
like seeing the children as well, but I am broody at the mo! I suppose I must be nosey!!

That was a small bang wasn't it

I knew i'd be told not to look, but i'm afraid thats an impossibility (pure nosiness i'm sorry)

But i never feel like posting anything because after 50 awwwws and oooooohs it just wouldn't seem genuine.

Fran1 - I don't cringe but dont' feel it necessary to do it myself. Different strokes and all that. Some people haven't got family and friends to show their lovely children off to so maybe that's why some do it.

I don't mind the cute baby pics, but I prefer pictures of Mumsnetters - they're funnier
