Royal fever

It appears Royal fever has officially taken over our house.  Perhaps it is all the coverage on TV.  Perhaps it is the fact I live in a house filled with women.  Perhaps it is the 16 hours of coverage we have PVRed.  At any rate, I'm even being overtaken by it.  I found myself showing Jorja and Ginny some stuff on the internet Friday morning while Julie was at work.  I couldn't believe how they both sat there for the whole 12 minute clip, completely enthralled.  I pointed out all the people to them, and Jorja was able to tell Julie what everyone was wearing when she got home.  "Princess Kate was beautiful and Prince William was so handsome.  The queen wore yellow..."  It was pretty impressive.  At one point, Jorja pointed to the screen and said, "Look, there's the flower girls and the grizzly bears."  "Grizzly bears?"  I asked.  Then it dawned on me, "Do you mean ring bearers?"  So close.

This evening Jorja said, "I wish I was a princess and that my Mom and Dad were the king and queen and I lived in a castle and could marry a prince."  It's good to have dreams I guess.

So I'm not sure why I'm getting so into the Royal wedding.  Maybe I want Jorja and Ginny to have the same type of memories of this that Julie has of Prince Charles and Lady Di's wedding.  Or maybe it's so they have the same kind of memories that I have of Wayne Gretzky and Janet Jones' wedding.  At any rate, it's pretty cool to see how into it they are.  Later.

  1. Sigh. And that's why 2 billion people watched the Royal Wedding. Because every girl on the planet has had the EXACT SAME dream that Jorja does. To be a Princess. You go girl! xxxx
