We are the Royal Family; Twisted Cinderella (me), Prince Charming, and our girls. Prince Charming is my closest friend, my greatest defender, and my listening ear. He is always ready to make me laugh. He gave me the strength to begin my journey of self-discovery. Since we met , I have moved from following the crowd to following my own path, prefering the life of a vegetarian, green-living, homeschooling mom. My old-fashioned, carnivorous, Prince Charming is not sure how he ended up married to someone like me, but he supports me in being the person that I am and even loves me for it.
My oldest girl, made me a mother in January of 2002. She changed my world and showed me just the depth of feeling true love brings. She loves to spend as much time outside as possible and loves all things music. We have recently found out that a part of her personality is that she has Aspergers (which is on the Austism Spectrum). We refuse to let that define her, it is merely a way for us to understand her a little better. She is loving, funny, energetic, a great big sister, she has Autism and she is my special big girl.
In July of 2008, after five long years of trying, she came into our world with a bright sunny smile and has kept us smiling ever since. She is pure sunshine and happiness and having her convinced us to tempt fate and try our hands at being parents for a third time.
Making an early arrival as expected Princess Snifflefritz is everything we hoped for. We are just so blessed that we didn’t have to wait another five years for her to make her appearance. She loves to cuddle and I have yet to convince her to sleep through the night. Her birth was a little more eventful than we would have liked
but she is so special and precious I am just glad she is with us. She has dark curly hair and her eye color was up for debate for a long time but we finally settled on brown like her sisters. She is a cuddly, funny, unique addition to our family and she adds so much joy to our family (formerly known as Princess Sleeps-a-lot
In March 2012, the day after my 40th birthday (and a full FIVE weeks early I might add), we welcomed Little Prince to our glass castle. He completes our family in a way I never expected. He is such a smily, happy boy and he is destined to be spoiled and loved on by three over-enthusiastic older sisters. I never expected to be a mom of four children, but there is a joy in the busyness that I never expected as well and a large part of that is due to the fact that I have great kids, and Little Prince is no exception adding some blue to our house of pink in a smiling, contented, patient way that only a youngest child in a large family can do.
