        fools you all are the ones being critical of the child,because in you all dummy heads that what you all do every day,and if you all are not parents i am,from child is born,we poke fun of them,we call them all kinds of funny names,does that mean we are critical of,no we are so fond of them that we call names like nunu tutu fat face and so on,that is just expressing how much love we have for them,so get you all shit heads together,and look at what is written in the intended sense,supposedly educated people.

    These kids are beautiful!! Look at those pearly white teeth.

    PS: This photo also breaks my heart. There is a sad little girl to the right. The photographer should either include or exclude her. Disparity is glaring.

    • Homeboy
      October 28, 2011

      Well maybe the child’s mother only wanted her child and then submitted her child. Don’t be too critical.

      October 28, 2011

      dats true i notice that also.. they shld have included her too..

      The photo is precious and magnifies the beauty that is Waitu.

      You also make a valid observation regarding the photo…and I don’t think you are picking at small things.

      Is the glaring disparity a result of the pointer of the lens?

      You people see a picture of the day featuring children in creole wear and you have to introduce politics into it. This is really sick.
