Alright, let‚Äôs get down to business. Megan and/or Kate... who is your favorite princess? To be honest, I don‚Äôt really stay current on my royal knowledge and hadn‚Äôt put much thought into the royal wedding until last Friday (in contrast to a few fanatic friends... you know who you are). But, I figured with a six-year-old little girl at home, it may be fun to participate in all the pomp and circumstance. I mean, what little girl doesn‚Äôt want to be or know a princess? Saturday morning, Hannah Grace and I cuddled in bed and watched the ceremony and all that followed. She poured us all ‚Äútea‚Äù and served it on a tray. I could see her little mind spinning, and we watched. The idea of royalty was coming to life. A real princess, a real prince, a real castle, and a real horse drawn carriage. She eventually got bored with the coverage, and we went on about our weekend. Sunday night as she was getting ready for bed she had a very important question to ask, ‚ÄúMommy, do you think the princess poops?" At first, I laughed (because who doesn‚Äôt laugh then someone says poop?), then I fumbled through what I feel is such an important lesson and reminder for all of us - one we tend to forget (just watch the news for 15 minutes). I tried to explain even though she and Princess Megan live different lives and live in different countries, they are the same. All people were created the same way by the same God who loves us all equally and calls us to love each other equally. We breathe the same oxygen, our hearts beat the same, and we even all use the loo!
