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.

Things I actually overheard today...

At the park, while Claire is trying to simultaneously climb down stairs and eat Cheerios:

Two five-year old girls are playing with a grouping of assorted figurines including the girl chipmunk from Spongebob, Elmo and a Polly Pocket.

Girl 1: Well she's a girl, and this one is a girl, right?
Girl 2: But what about Elmo? Is he a boy or a girl?
Girl 1: I dunno. Maybe he's a gay.

I love the ease and acceptance of children! I hope the next generations keep it up!
