I woke up this morning to news that the “royal baby” was on it’s way while looking at the news on my cell phone.
Scrolled down to find real news.
I saw a woman in Dubai was given a prison term for being raped.
Brushed my teeth
I went on Facebook to see two massive blows to education in North Carolina were passed today.
Then I went into the living room and found my kids cuddled up on the couch waking up.
“Hey guys! Guess what? There is a princess in Great Britain who is in labor and she is about to have a new prince or princess today!”
With all of the bad news and all of the disappointments the kids hear about from Newtown to adults arguing politics on the television I suddenly realized my childhood memories of hearing about the “royal wedding” and the babies being born. I need to emphasize all the good in the world too. They get so much bad thrown at them from so many media and social outlets.
I wrote about our “Timeline of our Children Marked by Monsters” (Here).
I need to remember that just because there are worse and more relevant things going on in the world I don’t have to stop appreciating a baby being born.
A real prince. A prince that isn’t a dictator but just a little baby that millions of people are thinking about, at the same time.
Today, each time I call the boys I have said, “My little princes…”
Thank you little prince for giving my boys a happy bubble on their timeline history.
All That Makes You…

I’m with you girl. Knock it all you want but it’s nice to have “happy” in the news for a change and as a girl of the 80’s who watched Will’s mom get married and him being born, I kind of have a big attachment to the whole story.

I am right there with you. Sadly, Diana died on our wedding night. Sat in hotel room watching on TV. :/
Yep. I love it. There is so much *other* news out there I totally feel you.

Hey, I had to give myself a pep talk. Must have to personalities? Ha ha!
