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.

I've never been a good sleeper. I tend to wake quite often, which hasn't been helped by having Claire. She wakes up, and needs to nurse, and I end up lying awake for too long afterwards. My brain boils with questions and worries.

Last night, I had a terrible time falling back to sleep after the 4:30am feeding. Once I did I had two back-to-back nightmares.

Well, the first was more of a stress dream. I was trying to catch a train, and the conductors wouldn't let me on the trains. (This, I know was a reaction to our plans to take the train upstate today.) I woke from that briefly, rolled over and drifted back to sleep and had a dream where I went to get Claire from her dream to discover that she'd gotten her head so wedged in the corner of the crib that her skull was deformed, bean shaped.

I was so fed up and out of sorts that I got up!
