What Was Number One When Your Kids Were Born?

I just saw Chelsea Mamma 's meme on her blog and thought it was a lovely idea. I did a What Was Number One When You Were Born post myself a few weeks ago and it seems like the logical progression so here are my five kids' number one singles from the day they were born.

U2 "Desire"

Vic Reeves and the Wonder Stuff "Dizzy"

Mark Morrison "Return of the Mack"

Will Young and Gareth Gates "Long and Winding Road"

Cascada "Evacuate the Dancefloor"

I did not remember one of these songs being number one when my babies were born. I must have been too busy being 9 months pregnant to have cared about the charts!  I think they are mostly quite fitting.  Having my first baby became my "desire" as a mixed up teenager, and having Joe really did put me on the path to becoming a better person.  Megan really is my wonderfully 'dizzy' daughter who makes me laugh and fills my life with laughs and all manner of 'wonder stuff'!  After Ella was born we started the process of changing our family name to McDonald...hence "Return of the Mack"!  Kizzy's birth gave us the beautiful song "The Long and Winding Road" which is a good metaphor for our journey together as a family, forever evolving and travelling but our road will always lead us back to the door of home.  However, Freddy's number one song has no relevance at's a rubbish dance track.  So I'll choose the song we listened to while I was in the labour room waiting for my contractions to start.  The local radio station seemed to play the same few songs over and over again at 3am, but I found this one most poignant to my situation....

Take That  "Patience"
