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.

Getting the cobwebs out

I recently started talking.

Stop laughing you, I mean, I've started seeing a therapist. Talking about me and my problems, for the first time in 4 years. It's been amazing, getting this brief window each week to think about me, and only me.

I don't get a lot of that.

And while I get that in the larger scheme of things, the problems of one little person doesn't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world (to malign a great quote) I do know that I'm a better person to my family for taking this step.
