Best Wishes, Jenna and Henry

This is guest blogger Ruth Anne Adams, "The Maternal Optimist."

I was beginning to despair about a White House wedding recently on this blog. Today, Jenna Bush's engagement to Henry Hager [of the Virginia Hagers] was announced. My mother taught me that you welcome engagements with Best Wishes and weddings with Congratulations. Similarly, news of pregnancies are Best Wishes and births are Congratulations.

Dust off your Emily Posts. Bring out Letitcia Baldridge. This could be fun.

Given the level of repsonsbility displayed by the Bush daughters, one wonders whether the "best wishes" on the engagement precedes or follows the "best wishes" on the announcement of pregnancy.

Wile E., you cynic! The couple has been dating for years. Now that the Bush girls are done with college and on their own, they haven't made news at all.

And I might add that if I had stalkerazzis and Secret Service Agents during my college years, my parents might have been even more embarassed than Laura and W. What's the line? When I was young and irresponsible, well, I was young and irresponsible!
