by Deborah Rene
She was such a happy baby and little girl, full of love and life. She had four brothers, no sisters, and was always striving to capture her mothers unconditional love. This was somewhat difficult and she learned over time that Mommy was very partial to boys.
Her childhood was a bit like Cinderella and the wicked step-mother except mother wasnt step; she was maternal. You may wonder about this later in the story but its true. This Cinderella story doesnt end with Prince Charming and it is much more psychologically challenging, for mother had two distinct personalities: one as charming as the sky is blue; the other as vindictive as the devil himself.
