Found The Daily Post at Word Press for daily prompts and I LOVE it. Everyday is a different topic that’s challenging and entertaining.
Today’s challenge was to pick a headline from the news and write a short story about it. Well of all the headlines I could have chosen I decided to pick
Now I don’t follow the Royal family at all. Yes, they are a cute couple and she is pure style and grace. So why did I choose this headline. All I could think about was how difficult it must be to share your pregnancy with the entire world.
I remember when I was pregnant with my son, I wanted to share every growth and change with my family, but did not want the entire world to know my business. I did NOT want to hear women tell me scary stories about their pregnancies. I did NOT want to hear women tell me stories about how wonderful their pregnancy and birth was after telling me I gained too much weight. I did NOT want strangers to touch my belly or give me advice which was outdated or insane.
I know this is the life Duchess Kate has chosen, but it still must be a difficult path. i can’t imagine how scary it must be knowing there are crazy people out there who want to be touch her or be her. I can’t imagine how scary it must be for her to want to protect herself and her baby while knowing her baby’s privacy is gone.
I can’t imagine how annoying and frustrating it will become when EVERYONE and their mother will be giving advice and criticism to Kate as she adjusts to motherhood. Fame and royalty are not always a great thing.
How did you feel during your pregnancy? Did you welcome advice or were wishing for private moments with your baby?
