Double, Double, Toil and Trouble…
Maybe that should be a Step Mother’s motto. The second marriage (double) often comes with toil and trouble for Step Mothers. Of course there are times that we wish we did have a team of flying monkeys to carry out our evil thoughts…but that does not mean our only transportation is a broom. We all have good and bad days – but don’t let the bad days out weigh the good.
If we want to do away with the title of evil and wicked that fairy tales have painted us with, it is our responsibility to be the Glenda’s of the world. (Glenda is the good witch from the Wizard of Oz). We need to be the positive influence in our families and set the pace for others to follow. The more positive example you become in your community on how a Step Mother should act and be respected, the faster the wicked notions will melt away.
“I’ll get you my pretty!” Of course other people may break us down, but we need to be able to rebuild ourselves and come back stronger and more positive than ever. Fairy tales are myths. Make the Wicked Step Mother one too.
