I'd Asked For A Fairytale Romance. In My Defense, I'd Never Actually Read Any Actual Fairy Tales.

[6/6] And if the man who once upon a time had been the boy who promised he'd never fall in love with another girl as long as he lived, he kept his promise. It wasn't because he was stubborn, or even loyal. He couldn't help it. And having hidden for three and a half years, hiding his love for a son who didn't know he existed didn't seem unthinkable. Not if it was what the only woman he would ever love needed him to do. After all, what does it mean for a man to hide one more thing when he has vanished completely?

I receive texts in the middle of the night from friends who wake up with nursery rhymes/childhood songs stuck in their head, which I've put there.

If you ever need someone to tell you nursery rhymes, or give you ridiculous Disney trivia, I'm your girl. Or childhood sing-a-long songs, that would also be me. I had a good childhood filled with fictional characters who took up the majority of my time and imagination.

Along with waking up to texts with childhood song lyrics, it's also become a trend to be woken up  by phone calls from my crying girlfriends, because of their boyfriends who have time and time again, done them wrong.

We're shown at a young age from disney movies and fairytales that Prince Charming is out there somewhere and we'll find him if we're patient enough. Maybe somewhere along the line we get tired of waiting and we settle for less. Maybe we stop believing that he's real and we decide that Joe Schmo will have to do.

Screw that.

Find a man that will kiss your flaws and makes you feel safe. And beautiful.

Kids say the darndest things!! Here's a video of my 6 year old cousin asking me if I'm pregnant (Which I am not!!) and then us discussing what kind of person one should marry:
