A Baby is Born


Once #NorthWest was born, the world could fully focus on an actual #royalbirth. The world has been watching with baited breath for the birth of the newest addition to the British #RoyalFamily, announced today, a prince is born.  Funny thing is there is actually an estimated one baby born every 8 seconds.  So, just from them time #Kate went into #royallabor there were 20249 other babies born.

I love #royalwatching as much as the next American girl.  I got up at 2am to watch Prince William’s parents get married.  I watched the wedding coverage of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) for 15 hours straight.  Watching babies is just not as exciting.  I can’t be in the room with them, like I was with my sister.  So, I can’t really feel as though I am participating.  I want to know when it happens, but my life won’t stop while I’m waiting.

Supposedly, the baby was overdue.  I say he came at the perfect moment for him.  I mean who could blame the baby for not being ready to be born yet? He is the future King of England.  That’s an enormous responsibility to be born with.  I would take my sweet-ass time too.

Gifts for this #royalbundleofjoy will come from all over the world.  I wonder how many sterling silver rattles will be given?

Unless you are on THE list, you will not be receiving a royal birth announcement.  I say, buy a gift anyway.  Instead of sending it to England, go down to your local hospital and give to a new mother down there.  I bet any one of them would be happy to receive a gift fit for a prince.  That means, don’t be stingy.  Give this gift as though you were giving it to HRH himself.  This is in celebration of his birth after-all.

I figure, he’s royal.  His stuff is covered.  Another baby is probably not as fortunate in this way, he/she could really use it.  And with 20249, plus the 150 born since I started writing this,  there are plenty of other babies to choose from.

Now, I wonder what the name’s going to be…
