  10. I don't sit around all day filing my nails and eating bon bons or anything like that. I work full time and have a houseful of kids, so have little leisure time. I worry about college tuition, the pile of laundry, my weight and the obnoxious co worker. My time at home is generally spent on house stuff or kids activities, which seem to increase in number and cost as they get older.

  12. I'm pretty much a middle aged, middle class, ordinary small town wife and mom.

  20. It has been said and should not have to be said again that "princess" refers more to the fairy tale princess, or in our case the taken in hand princess.

  23. Fairy tale princesses
  24. Well, they can sometimes have a pretty rough time too. They can be abused by wicked stepmothers, or cast off by vengeful fathers, have to wander the world begging, or forge iron shoes and climb glass mountains, or make shirts out of nettles. Sometimes they can be abused by their husbands too, the prince is sometimes too willing to believe his wicked mother when she tells him his bride has been up to no good. A lot of scary stuff happens to princesses in fairy tales.
