Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

With the cold weather we’ve been having this winter, everyone is ready for spring. The royal family have another reason to get excited for spring this year. As you probably already know, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are pregnant with their first baby. Since the announcement from Kensington Palace in October, the world has been speculating the baby’s name, gender- any bit of information really. So we collected all the information out there on Baby Sussex.

It seems as though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry don’t even know the exact name of Baby Sussex yet. It’s been reported that they have a “long list” of baby names, so we’ll just have to wait till Meghan gives birth this spring. Until then, the soon-to-be-parents have nicknamed their baby their “little bump.” So adorable!

Per royal tradition, Meghan and Prince Harry will wait until the birth to learn Baby Sussex’s sex. Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette said, “Besides the people in the delivery room, it’s tradition that the queen is first to be told of the new arrival via phone call. While there are many royal baby traditions that have been broken in recent generations- such as Princess Diana being the first to birth a royal baby outside of a palace and, instead, in a hospital- saving sex reveal for the day of birth is likely one that will stay for generations to come.” It’s been reported that Meghan might also break from tradition and give birth in London’s St. Mary’s Hospital, where Kate Middleton gave birth to all three of her children.

Reporters following the royal’s closely heard Meghan Markle tell her fans that the baby is due in late April or early May. Spring can’t come fast enough!
