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.

Morning Has Broken


The thing of it is - it rarely lasts, those angry days.

The sun comes up. The breeze is warm on my face. I have friends, I have family, and I am very loved.

This was one of those weeks - where the sheer loveliness of it all scrubbed the cobwebs away from the dank corners of my mind.

Cases in point:
  • Taking Ben to splash in the sprinklers at the park, and watching him show off his "NAKED TUM!!!" to his friends with enough joy to power a small city.
  • Meeting a friend for shopping and dimsum in Flushing. (Never underestimate the power of a cheap t-shirt or three and cute earrings  from Target.)
  • Meeting another friend for margaritas and chips to talk about blogging, and have another friend see you through the window and come join you. 
I am a lucky, lucky lady.

Spending time in an urban oasis helps too. Also, this whole look from Claire made me smile all day. Right down to the cocked hip...
