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.

It is 8:25 on an unseasonably warm winter morning.

I've gotten Ben fed and back to sleep. He's lying on the bed next to me, arms and legs wrapped snugly in his swaddle. Occasionally he sighs and grunts, dreaming his baby dreams.

Dave has taken Claire off to school for the morning. I got her up and dressed today. Packed her snack and lunch for her. But the trip to school is Daddy time. Sometimes they walk. Today, I think they were just late enough to need the stroller.
