An Arranged Marriage

Seret and The Bride brought LJ over for a visit today.  It was Flapjilly's first playdate.  She slept through the whole thing.

Our god-daughter delivered LJ three months ago.  She and Little Cuter shared stories of contractions and good nurses and handsome anesthesiologists while their mothers sat by and glowed.  Seret and I did the same thing three decades ago.  This circle of life stuff is quite amazing.

The young mothers shared tips on feeding and pillows and blankets and diapers.  Product development in baby goods must have been a major growth industry since I was last in the market.  There are pillows structured to support the newborn when she's sleeping, and a larger size for a bigger baby.  These pillows have removable covers, but the whole thing can also go into the washer and dryer and come out unsmooshed and ready for use.

We put the Cuters on a Baby Bjorn.  It was a portable baby tent - a hard surface covered by corduroy with a handle on top.  We put the kid inside, zipped him up, and were able to carry that sleeping baby from the laundry room to the kitchen to the den without disturbing him at all.  When he got fussy, TBG would swing him left and right, back and forth, around and around, until the motion returned him to blissful slumber.

Of course, this was when you could put your baby to sleep on his stomach.  On her back in that gadget, Flapjilly's lack of head control would have been a serious issue.  The girls were not that interested in the past.  They were busy discussing the future.

We had lunch in shifts; nursing mothers have a hard time with a pre-planned schedule.  No one cared.  We chatted, we ate, and we planned a wedding.

The Bride and Big Cuter were promised to one another by their mothers sometime during their first year of life.  The parents were friends, the kids played well together, and it all seemed perfectly logical to everyone concerned.

Of course, the prospective bride and groom were not capable of weighing in on the subject.

Wondering if we needed to hedge our bets, Seret and I decided that our infants would be a default date for the prom if all other options failed.  They never took us up on the offer, but I have to believe it made high school just that much easier, having one worry removed in infancy.

It was thinking along those lines that brought us to the obvious conclusion: LJ and Flapjilly will make a perfect married couple.

We're not interested in their opinions on the subject.  As The Bride remarked this afternoon, we've checked out the family trees and found them unblemished.  Big Cuter is all for it, too.  As he posted on Facebook, the infants' grandparents have been trying to join the families for a long, long, time.  It seems churlish to throw obstacles in our path.

Now all we have to do is convince SIR.  He says he has to meet the boy, examine his morals, determine if he'll be a worthy partner for his own little girl.

I love the attitude.
