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.

Wherein a birthday is celebrated

Claire turned 4 last week. She is as wonderful a girl as a mother could hope for. Filled with curiosity, passion and caring. She is tall, strong and her once-black hair has softened into light brown curls that burst from her head.

We frustrate each other some times, but I cannot believe I get to shepherd this kid on her journey. 

Like she once said to me, "You make my heart so very happy, mama."

You too, little girl. You too.

Happy birthday Claire! Congrats to mom! She is an incredible girl.

I didn't have time to read lj since the little guy was born. But I hope you will continue to post when you can. I understand too well that the days can be challenging! I hope you are good. And yes, there is a lot more to life than poop. And in a couple years we will feel that. At the moment...well... *sigh*

At least you will have both out of diapers in a year or two. Then their poop won't be the issue. There will be new and bewildering things to worry about!
