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.

Christmas meme

Eggnog or hot chocolate? Hot Chocolate, please.

Does Santa wrap the presents or leave them open under the tree? This is our first year that we will have to deal with this. Santa presents and stocking stuff will be unwrapped. Santa is very, very busy so he thinks wrapping is overrated.

Colored lights on a tree or white? Colored! The more the merrier!

Do you hang mistletoe? No.

When do you put your decorations up? The first weekend in December.

What is your favorite holiday dish? Stuffing

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No.

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? I have a nice selection of ornaments that my mom gave me from her tree - old family stuff and things I received as gifts - a bunch of glass balls we picked up on clearance and the personalized family ornaments I started collecting when Claire was born.

Snow: love it or hate it? Hate.

Can you ice skate? Barely.

What is your favorite holiday dessert? Those butter cookies you make with a cookie press.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? Heading into the city to look at the department store windows, the light show at Grand Central Station and the Rockefeller Center tree. Then going to the holiday market to pick out my ornament to be personalized.

Candy canes: yum or yuck? Yum

Favorite Christmas show? The Grinch. (cartoon version)
