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.

(Am I the only one who says that like the old Thomas Dolby song?)

As I was saying - sorry for the lag, but Ben has had a terrible cold, with several days of fevers AND I've been trying to stick to a workout schedule, to attempt to get back into some sort of shape that doesn't immediately call to mind "marshmallow"

However, I did want to share some pictures of some of the great adventures we've had. One of the great things we love to do around here is head to the New York Hall of Science. It's not billed as a kids' only museum, but it might as well be. With a dedicated playspace for little kids, the Preschool Place as well as a host of other interactive exhibits, it's a great place to spend a few hours on a cold weekend. In fact, we run into so many of our friends from the neighborhood there, that I just go expecting to see familiar faces.

We are trying to raise our kids to be curious learners, who are engaged in the world around them, and I love this small gem for making that a little easier.

Hey! Marshmallows are wonderful, soft, sweet things...highly sought after in my house ;-)!
That museum sounds WONDERFUL! Next year, when Baby's nap isn't VITAL, I'm hoping to find some good places like that around where I live. *fingers crossed*

I definitely want to come out there with you sometime. It looks like an amazing place. I know the kids will love it.

I also really want to get back to the zoo near you sometime. I think everyone needs Highland cattle in their lives. *grin*
