Marlon Peabody

November 17, 2004

I have been referring to the two boys as the toddler and the infant. I might change that, for I have caught myself referring to the infant as Marlon Peabody. Why that name?

Well, he is a round-faced great big baby (85% on height and weight) with straight hair that falls forward. As a result he look a lot like Marlon Brando did in the later scenes in the first Godfather movie, only without the moustache.

For the Peabody - well, after you change a few soaked diapers, and the soaked undershirts that come with a very well hydrated baby, Mr. Peabody becomes the generic name for any baby with a full, wet, diaper.

Marlon Peabody, it has a certain ring to it.

I understand perfectly. Not having any kids underfoot, but at one time being overloaded with cats, I tended to name them by the first impression they made. Thus one haughty kitten was The True Queen of England and one particularly scatterbrained one was Chickenhead.
There was Freaky Mom, and Adolf (for the mustache and evil attitude)
Booger sneezed a lot and Yoko Ono yowled constantly.

Marlon Peabody.... it has a lovely ring.
