It's barely been two months since they welcomed Prince George into the world, but according to supposed pals of the royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning for baby #2 already. I know, I know, this all could very well just be a bunch of hullabaloo, but the quote that claims Will and Kate would be "delighted to be pregnant by Christmas" does make this story a tad believable. And although being pregnant with a 5-month-old may seem, quite literally, nauseating to some, I say it's a great idea, and they should totally go for it.

The way I see it, get it all out of the way at once. One looooong stretch of poo-covered sleeplessness. One of the reasons another baby frightens me is because my daughter, save for the few many tantrums she has daily, is quite easy. She sleeps through the night. When she's crying, I pretty much always know why. She even says "poo-poo" after she's, well, pooed. Delving back into the whiles of infantdom after this lovely stretch of, for lack of a better word, "relaxation," is flat-out daunting. (Especially the sleep thing.) It also seems that the older kids get, the harder it is for them to adjust to younger siblings.
When I was two months into being a mom, I so wasn't thinking about another baby. Like, at all. And I think the fact that Kate is is awesome. So, I say go for it, sister. Strike while the iron's hot. Because once you get a sweet, sweet taste of a full night's sleep, it's going to be hard to go back.
