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.

After a good long couple of months stretch of sleeping really well, Claire is back to waking up screaming in the wee small hours. She goes down to sleep just fine, but wakes around midnight, fusses a bit, then falls back to sleep for another stretch, only to wake up crying and miserable.

Can't decided if it's the teething, the about-to-crawl state of mind or something else. Nightmares? Separation anxiety? Fear of the dark?

I wish I knew, and I wish she would sleep better again. It's making for a very tense household.

On the other hand, we've been letter the cats into the bedroom at night, and they are keeping me nice and warm at night. Awww.

Oh, man. Sleep issues. They dominate EVERYTHING. With five kids, it seems like someone is ALWAYS having a sleep issue of one kind or another. Eventually the issue passes, and then there's a break---and then a fresh issue!
