Tonawanda News —
And I’m think of the former Kate Middleton, in a hospital room, ill and tired (you’re always tired, at this point) and probably surrounded by people but not those she likely most wants to see. The horde waiting outside, ready to pounce on the merest maternity-wear faux pas, eagerly speculating on baby name and the possibility of twins, ready with a zoom lens to capture the slightest sign of what someone considers too much baby weight ... those things I don’t know.
The fear, the stress, the internal prayers and hopes and dreams, however ...
Yeah. With those, I can identify.
So, good luck, Will and Kate. Parenthood is an amazing thing. I hope that even with all the craziness and the media and the never-ending attention and chatter, you can enjoy it.
I hope you get your fairy tale.
