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.

Adventures in Clairey-wood

This morning I took Claire to a little quasi-playschool program a few subway stops away. It's pouring down rain here, so I wanted to get out and do something indoorsy that wasn't just walking the loop at the Mall, or heading to the Science Museum again. Besides, I might want to do that tomorrow.

It was really cute - there were about 8 kids there, and Claire was right smack in the middle of the age range. They had free play, then did arts and crafts, had a snack and sang some songs. I stayed for the whole time, but there were a few moms who dropped off their kids. Eventually I would like to get to that point with Claire, but this was a great start.

Here she is, sitting at the table, enjoying Goldfishies and some milk, while Miss Mary read them a story

What a great idea! Wish we had something similar. I'm praying I can get Mina into Jordan's school in January for a couple of days. Fingers crossed. Just running out of things to do and it's only December!
