Sometimes you think you are communicating to find out that you have so missed the mark!! That was my experience following the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. I bought fun, tacky tiara's for me and my girls. We baked a white cake, with strawberry filling for the wedding cake, and a chocolate cake for the grooms cake. We were ready set, to get up on April 29 at the crack of dawn, I believe in Glenpool, Ok that made it about 4 am.
We got up, and ooh, and ahh'd over the hats and the dresses. We waited with anticipation to see the bridal dress. When Princess Eugenie and Beatrice arrived on the scene with there fun amazing, show stopping hats, I pointed out the princesses to my princesses "Oh, look there is Fergie's daughter's". I also pointed out several other people to them along the way, David and Victoria Beckham (my did she not look lovely for being pregnant, and yes, boy he looked handsome!) I pointed out Prince Charles, and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall. We talked about the large bet placed on what color Queen Elizabeth would wear. The large bet, guessed it would be yellow. Yellow it was. All and all we had a wonderful time. We thought the wedding was nice, the bride's sister Pippa looked Wow!! The ceremony was sweet and seemed personal even though they were sharing it with the world. A great day to add to our memories that I was building with my kids.
Days later, we were talking and I spotted Fergie on the talk show circuit. I pointed her out to my girls, my oldest looked dumb struck, and went "Oh! I was wondering why Fergies, daughters were so old, when Fergie does not seem old enough to have daughters that age." Yep, you guessed it, she thought I had been talking about
the singer, Fergie , not the redhead former princess Sarah Ferguson. Sigh, sometimes you think you are communicating and sharing information only to find that you have missed the mark completely!
