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.

We're getting into the next routine around here. Bedtime is creeping incrementally earlier, and she's sleeping slightly longer. Sometimes she does wake up to nurse more often when she goes to sleep earlier.

We're in a phase of one feeding in the 2 - 2:30am range and another anywhere from 4:30 onward. Sometimes she goes back to sleep until 7 or so, other times, she's wakeful, so we take her and put her in her room in the crib for a while. Several times, she's dozed back to sleep there.

It's nice to hear her cooing away at the mobile. Or the aquarium toy. And we get a moment's respite to get dressed and ready, or get some breakfast in, or empty the dishwasher. Or, like this morning, all three.
