She then chooses the most evil looking 32, this year out of a whopping 300 entries, and asks readers to vote.

"Being able to see the entertainment value in a baby who refuses to go to sleep or a kid who is having a tantrum over a broken goldfish cracker is part of parental survival," Ilana told HuffPost Parents.

Kadence's evil glare won her a whole heap of prizes, including gift cards and an Evil Baby Glare-Off babygro.
