This is a guest post. I found Suburban CiCi (you may remember her as Cinderella) and talked her into giving us some happily ever after advice. Now she lives in the suburbs with the King and three Princes.
Take it away, CiCi!
I am soooo serious! Oh, hang on, I'm doing a blog. I'll have to call you back, FG.
Hello all you people in blogland! I am so honored to be doing this post-thingie and hope it gives encouragement to other Maids turned Moms. Let me tell you all about my life after the royal wedding.
First, we moved around. This kingdom needs us over here, that kingdom needs us over there, bla bla bla. Anyway, we're settled here now and let me tell you, I don't want to move again!
And I had hoped my days of scrubbing the floors were over. Boy was that a joke. Now I have 4 boys to clean up after - much messier than those step sisters.
At least I get to go out more. Like tonight the King and I are supposed to go to a ball. I just hope I have enough energy left to have a good time, because every time we get a sitter, I have to clean the entire castle before I can go! Sound familiar? FG doesn't mind if the place is a mess, but come on. I have to do it, right?
Then I have to squeeze into my gown. After three kids and a few decades, the curves have shifted. And FG is no plastic surgeon.
Overall life has been good. We have been happy and our kingdom is a great place to live. The princes are growing up nicely and staying out of trouble so far.
My advice: Deal with the bad, then you can appreciate the good. Just because I married Prince Charming doesn't mean I live in a fairy tale.
Thank you Ci-Ci! Sounds like you have to work to make a happy ending last. May all your dreams come true!
