My baby brings all the coos to the yard

Today Paula and I went out to Cha Cha Cha’s for some cheap Mexican food.

Before we left we stopped next door for some coffee and happened to bump into another couple and their blond haired, blue eyed, elephant eared baby. His eyes were the color of the caribbean ocean and his ears looked seashells strapped to an elongated peanut shaped head.

Paula cooed over how cute he was and I was sufficiently complimentary.

Then we stepped off to the side while we waited for our coffee. I commented quietly to Paula on both his gorgeous eyes and his wide ears. If a big wind came along his parents would have to tie him down. There was a gentleman ordering at the counter and apparently that was the father. According to Paula there is the tiniest of tiny chances that he heard me.

If so, I apologize. Sir, It was obviously not my intention to point out your son’s enormous ears where you could hear me. Next time, I will wait until we are both in the car.

[Edit – I felt silly after the fact, the next afternoon I felt awful. I don’t think he heard me because he didn’t kick my ass.. Paula even confirmed I did use the word “ugly.” Now THAT was rude. Oh well. Live and learn.]

Jefferson, of course, is perfect. Like a tiny Winston Churchill. Everyone’s baby looks perfect to them, big ears and all. I’m sure Jefferson has flaws, but I doubt we’ll ever see them.

And you’re damn right, he’s cuter than yours.

  1. Yes, you must always, always, be away from the ears of others when commenting on the features of a child that is not your own.

      After the fact I felt a little silly. The next morning I felt awful.

      I partially meant that everyone’s baby looks perfect to them, big ears and all. I’m sure Jefferson has flaws, but I doubt we’ll ever see them.
