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.

Much better

By yesterday, C's face was almost entirely clear. She still has some rough textured spots, but to the eye, she's back to normal. She has a strawberry mark between her eyes, and it's still there, but otherwise, she's my pretty, sweet girl again. I have noticed some rougher bits on the undersides of her arms and on her thumb, but it's much milder and getting better every day

She's so into standing up these days. She can just stand now - not needing to pull herself up anymore. And she waves her toys and claps while doing it. Most of the time, she's fantastic, and loves to plop herself right back down on her bottom when she needs to sit. However occasionally she misses and falls down and bangs some part of her against a toy...hence the bruise on her left cheek. Purple! My poor little girl!

Ah - I hope she doesn't inherit my clumsiness!

Hazardous business, this walking stuff. She should go straight to kayaking. That's what I think.

BTW I'm not telling you which one but you are so getting memed within the next week or so.
