Let's start at the beginning, at least for me. I was the youngest child of a large family and as my mother likes to remind me, quite frequently, I believed the word Princess bespoke of me and my royal lineage. Never mind that my family were farmers and immigrants from Mexico and from all over the world, this did not deter my belief in the fact that ALL little girls are Princesses.
Flash forward to 2001, sitting in the Dr's office waiting for the ultrasound on my first baby. When the nurse informed me it was a little girl it was as if mountains of pink tutus and ballet shoes and glitter and sparkles enveloped me. Hooray!
