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.

Easter 2009

This has been perhaps my least ambitious Easter on record.

Last year, I think (although I can't recall anymore) I did make it to church.
Not even a hope today, even with the church 5 measly blocks from the apartment.

I did read the Passion from St. Luke last night before I went to bed, and hummed "Welcome Happy Morning" while toasting bagels and scrambling eggs for breakfast.

(Also, checked the 75% department at the drug store for marked-down Easter candies while running errands.)

We had a great morning and afternoon - Claire was all sorts of charming, her Omi and Grampa John came down and we all tramped over to the park for some fun. Afterwards we went to the illustrious Pio Pio for a celebratory lunch. Man, did that hit the spot! I still marvel at such tasty, well-prepared and inexpensive food. Lunch for four hungry adults, and a hungry toddler for $36 in an attractive setting? In NYC? SWEET!!!

Then we came home and attempted to get Claire to nap. No such luck there. But the rest of us were able to eat some homemade pound cake that my mother-in-law brought down for us.

Now it's me and Claire playing while Dave naps. Perfect sunday. Dinner is going to be leftover chili, salad and brown rice. (I'm pondering making some tortilla bowls with the stale tortillas we've got.

How about you? How did you spend the weekend?
