A picture of the cast from your favorite show:

We all remember this show! And I love it! The good ol' 80's tv sitcom Cheers! I remember it came on at 9 pm and I used to beg my Grandmother...."PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! DIANE AND SAM ARE GOING ON A DATE! PLEASE GRANDMA PLEASE!' Eventually she would give in and let me watch it!
Now days I catch it on cable...and will sit for hours watching it!

Prince Charles and Princess Di vs Prince William and Kate?

Ok this is grinding my gears! Its all over the media..I'm sure you've seen it? Which couple is better Charles and Di or William and Kate? I've even seen Di vs Kate.
This upsets me..because who are we to judge William's relationship with Kate because of what happened with his parents.
Nobody really knows what happened between Charles and Di...except for them. And chances are we will never know. And that's the way its supposed to be. Who are we as society to judge them at all? No relationship is perfect in every way. But when you take high profile people and splash their personal life all over the media. Its not right. Unlike, the actors and actresses, who worked so hard to become what they are. And knew what they were getting into and chose that kind of life. The Royals,and even the Kennedy's('the American version of the Royals') They didn't choose that life. Charles and William were born into that life. They had no choice. You are high profile from the moment you are conceived. What a life, right?
Princess Di and the future Princess Kate, yes I guess you can say they chose it. Some say that Di married Charles for the 'marriage of convenience' or better known as a 'political marriage'. Again, no one knows why they married. It was what it was.
The marriage happened to produce two wonderful boys, in which, the line will continue. And with that, Di, did whatever she could for her sons. Even if she was unhappy in her marriage. She stayed with it for as long as she could. I feel that yes it probably was a marriage of convenience, but at some point, maybe in the beginning they did love each other. At the end, probably not so much.
As for Kate, I think that she really in love with William. And William her too. The whole world is holding their breath for this wedding. In hopes that, It will last.
But judging, Will and Kate's marriage based on his parents marriage, is like judging my marriage with my husband. We have been married for 16 1/2 years....but together for over 20 years now. Where as my parents were together for maybe 3.

As for the Kate vs. Di thing..Which is the better Princess? Come on. Its like judging Princess Di to Princess Grace of Monaco. You can't do it. Well, You could. But how unfair is it? Different time, different ways.
I remember my mother always saying when she was a little girl she wanted to be Princess Grace, when she grew up. I wanted to be Princess Di, when I grew up. And My little 10 year old Niece..wants to have a 'Cupcake and Tiara' party on Saturday.
I want to say a Princess is a Princess...but again comparing them just because they have the title. Doesn't mean anything.

Mom vs. Aunt

So everyone knows that I have seven sons in which I love dearly! But do you know I have some other children in my life that I love too. I have five nieces and one nephew,(2 of the nieces live in Texas in which I hardly get to see) that have a special place in my heart.
Truth be known, I love my sons. I do everything for them. Cooking supper, doing laundry, making beds, helping with homework. (thank goodness we got out of the dirty diaper stage!)Telling funny jokes and stories to entertain them. I get up early in the morning to see them off to school, and then stay up late to make sure everybody is sleeping well. Now I am not complaining in any matter. That's what  a mother does, correct?

But when I'm with my sister and her children. Its funny. We click off our mommy mode, and turn on our auntie mode. We know that the other will watch our kids. We spoil them rotten. For instance, My 'lone nephew' went up and asked his momma for some ice cream. She said no..your going to eat dinner in a few minutes. Now, normally, I would tell him you have to listen to your mother. But out of the corner of my eye..I see her giving all of my sons, an ice cream. Ok, nah, hold just told my nephew he had to wait for his...but your giving my sons some? She said 'Of course, they are my nephews..come on I only have 7?'  Hummmm...yeah I told I walking over to the freezer, grabbing  5 more Ice creams 'Well, I only have one!' I proceeded to give all my nieces one and my nephew two. The girls know that , Billy, gets what he wants..because he is the "lone nephew'.
Now don't get me wrong. Yes, he is the 'lone nephew'. But my nieces also get spoiled. Hair and make up, I stick up for them as only an Aunt could. (Especially, when they have a boy they like) Yes, they have other Aunts and Uncles.(Looking at it...two of them, have no children of their own, meaning they have 13 nieces and nephews. My brother has...8 nephews and 3 nieces. And my other sister, has 7 nephews and 2 nieces. I'm out numbered by far!) But, these children are my only nieces and nephews. I am blessed to be Aunt Adds to six wonderful children.

Until next time~
