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.

11:29 Saturday

I'm sitting up in bed, listening to Ben cry. After months and months of helping him through the rough nights of screaming, we decided, at the advice of our pediatrician that it was time to sleep train.

I won't lie, its awful, we went through something similar with Claire, but I know its the best solution.

And in the length of time it took to type this out, he has settled down.

Well then, there's your answer: post something every night, and he'll fall asleep. Must be the rhythmic sound of those typewriter keys.

That is so hard =(! I had to do sleep training with ALL of mine; not ONE of them figred out how to stay asleep on their own =(. I hope it goes quickly for you both!

Ouch. Sorry to hear you have to do it again.

We soooo need to do it with the Little Guy but haven't. *sigh* And Elanor is awaking again during the night. Not fun.
