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.

Claire started solids this week. Rice cereal followed by carrots.

Um -- not good. One or the other has given her a rash. We're not sure which, since she started looking rashy after having both for dinner the night before.

And the rice is sort of keeping her system in a holding pattern.
So we're switching to oatmeal.

She's teething. "Any day now" said the doctor. There are three bumps, so hopefully we will have three teeth before long. We've had two sleepless nights so far.

But, all is not bad news - she's sitting up without help, and she's scootching backwards from time to time. And right now she is growling at one of her cloth books.

AAAAH! yikes! and exciting!

Next thing you'll know she'll be walking & talking & it's all downhill from there!

Suddenly reminded of my 2nd favorite subway poem -

"Your daughter grows a tooth, then..."

can't remember the rest but you know the one I mean, right?

My favorite one was about blackberries & I can't remember any of it. Bummer.
