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.

Snowy Afternoon

We woke up this morning to cloudy skies and snow in the forecast. By the time we headed out to music, it was starting to come down.

Not enough to be a problem but enough to coat the trees and grass, but leave the sidewalks wet.
Now Claire is sleeping, and I left her here for a while with Kayakboy. I had a couple of errands to run and grabbed the camera on my way. There is something about the stark whiteness of new snow that sets off the colors of the world so well.

This is the entrance to our building. Nothing fancy, but the way the snow is clinging to the railing is pretty cool, I think. Don't you?

I like the picture. It looks wonderful.

I only wish this sort of snow stayed looking nice. I am dreading the walk home from the train. For some reason I decide not to wear my boots this morning. Bad idea!

I love that the snow looks spray painted on! Pretty!

Ok, it is kinda pretty - I'll grudgingly admit. But I'm still on the "sick of winter" bandwagon.
