Polo, Princes and Pregnancy

We’ve all heard those stories of the dad who just barely makes it in time to witness his child’s birth. Although The Husband was present for all three of our kids’ entrances to the world, we were more than a little worried that he wouldn’t be there for the third little bugger, since the second one arrived within an hour of my water breaking.

Since the royal baby didn’t arrive this past weekend, all is well for Prince William, who was 100 miles away for a charity polo match on Saturday. But can you imagine the flak he would have gotten if he’d missed the whole thing?

It’s hard to say now -- a decade after our youngest child was born -- if I would have been cool with his dad choosing to be 100 miles away right before delivery. Would you?
