As we all well aware about mothers emotions toward their children since birthgiving up to the end! Usually, all mothers think deep down inside that their children are the most beautiful and no other child is so beautiful in their eyes as their own.
In my language metaphorically, people have a proverb which says:
- The cockroach tells its child, how beautiful and white are your legs! :) [Meaning that even to the eyes of a beetle mother, her children are the most beautiful]
It is often said sarcastically when a mother is making good remarks about her child or when someone is saying some good words about a person who is in favor with them. Please note that such a saying should be usually said in a humorous tone; otherwise if it said directly can seem offensive and maybe quite annoying.
Here is my founded expression which I have my doubts whetehr it is a commonly said one in English or not!
- No mother thinks their children ugly.
I would be appreciative if you let me know what does a native normally say in such a situation?
