Most little girls grow up being enchanted by fairytales and dream of marrying their handsome prince and living happily ever after in a castle. Come on, admit it–you fantasized about this at least once or twice.
Well for one lucky girl, a commoner no less, the world watched and celebrated as Kate Middleton married Prince William on April 29, 2011. Seriously, is there anything that could be better than marrying into royalty?
I’m here to tell Kate there is one thing that can actually top marrying her prince and its a lifetime experience, a true miracle, that begins today.
Today after what seems like a pregnancy that lasted an eternity (Jessica Simpson may be the only woman who endured a longer pregnancy with Maxwell), Kate gave birth to a healthy 8 lb, 6 oz baby boy. Nice going delivering a male heir for your first born.
In addition to being The Dutchess of Cambridge, Kate is now a mother. Regardless of what anybody tells you, this is the most special and truly rewarding role. You will leave the hospital with this helpless, beautiful being who relies on you for everything.
You will stare and marvel at your son in his bassinet. You will count his little fingers and toes. He will always be the most beautiful thing you have ever laid your eyes on. You will love him unconditionally. You will teach him and yet you will learn more from him than you ever have before. His laugh will be your favorite sound. Sneaking a peek of him sleeping will be better than watching the most hyped-up new blockbuster film. Yes, there will be plenty of times where he will drive you absolutely mad, but he’s supposed to and that’s simply par for the course. All he has to do is give you a kiss, hug a certain Iook or just say something, and your heart will melt and you’ll forget what he did wrong.
How do I know all this? I have my own little Prince who was born 5 days after my first wedding anniversary almost four years ago. The time flies. I find myself often wondering how he’s gotten so big so incredibly fast. I wish I could slow down time but understand that’s impossible.
By the way, looking towards the future, our beautiful two month old daughter (we actually announced our pregnancies within two weeks of each other) Greenlee Britain is available to marry the future King, provided he convert to Judaism first. Below is a photo for your consideration.
