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.

A Peeve of Mine...

It's a minor one, but drives me batty pretty consistently.

Why, oh why do people write the name of the intended recipient on a gift that's going to one person. I'm going to a shower tomorrow, and I'm bringing my gift as well as one from someone who's going to be out of town. She wrote the name on her card.

In case there's confusion as to who should be opening the present.

It's not like it's Christmas morning, with multiple people opening presents at the same time.

I'm so petty!

Just catching up on your blog here.

I confess, I am one of those people who drives you nuts. *chuckle*

I know part of my habit steams from the fact that when I was young, my family would have a large birthday gathering at the end of August. There were a whole bunch of us that had birthdays around that time. So if the present wasn't labeled, it was a mess.

A friend of mine does it because she buys presents throughout the year. So when it comes time for a birthday, etc. she already has the present tagged & ready.
