Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Did I tell you how I got picked up in the park on Monday?


I had taken Claire to playgroup (which is funny, since she's been the youngest and most immobile kid there, but I like to talk to the Mommies, and they are welcoming.)

Anyhow - afterwards she fell asleep in the stroller on the way home. So, I decided to sit in the little park by the Citigroup building until she woke up. As I was sitting there, this nice gal came up with a stroller of her own. Kate, with William, 11 weeks. She was so happy and relieved to meet another mom, so we exchanged information and I invited her to playgroup yesterday.

And now Claire isn't the littlest baby in the group any more.
