Too early to matchmake?

April 18, 2011

Dear Max

Yesterday I went to visit my friend Tiffany’s new baby Milla who is two weeks old. She is gorgeous, and among the first words I said when I saw her were: “I can’t believe she’s so small”, a line every mom says when cradling someone else’s newborn.

Aside from holding her, successfully feeding her a bottle (of expressed milk, I need to add, before Tiffany kills me) and burping her (woohoo, I still have the touch), we also loosely chatted about a potential match between you and Milla one day.

Now, I know it was just a joke and that you’re *only* 18 months and can’t yet say mama let alone marriage, but heck, I really do want you to land up with good stock (kind, clever, preferably sporty, into reading, and preferably a cat lover). I won’t meddle in these matters Max, but if you do want help in finding The One For Now, let me know. Let’s face it, most Jewish people think they’re a matchmaker, but I really will look after your interests…

For now though, I’ll worry about present-day stuff, like how to explain to Sharon and Lisa Marie that I’ve “promised” you to someone else’s daughter other than theirs.

I hope this post doesn’t embarrass you. I think it might. And that I’ll delete it before you start reading.

Your smitten-for-you Mom

    I’m keen on this particular shidduch. She *is* good stock and she hits (or, in fairness, will hit) all of your markers above, as well as – tho I’m sure you omitted this in error – a healthy sense of irony. Thanks for being specific about the expressed milk, hun. Appreciate it. You have, however, ‘outed’ my secret blog. But I don’t mind. The time had come.

      Of course Milla is “the one”. Obviously. For so many reasons. And how awesome does “Max and Milla” sound? Just putting it out there…

    It is never to early. Both my daughters already have potential husbands. Amandalynn is almost 5 and her husband to be is in grade 2 and a awesome little boy, Lorelai ia a year and Hubby to be is almost 2 and her godmothers son. I know these 2 boys will be raised correctly which makes them perfect for my little girls.
