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.

Changing Seasons

Today was the last day of summer.

Claire starts first grade tomorrow. Her backpack is packed up with markers, crayons, scissors and all the other (many) supplies she needs to start the year off properly. Her clothes are laid out and her lunch is ready in the fridge.

Ben is ready for PreKindergarten. His lunch is ready, and in the morning we will pick out his clothes for the day.

We had a lovely last two weeks of summer - the weather improved and we went into Manhattan to visit friends, went back to Central Park and  back to Victorian Gardens.
The kids have grown so much over the summer that I DIDN'T HAVE TO RIDE ANYTHING WITH THEM! (Not a huge deal, but I get sort of dizzy on those little rides, and it was fantastic to watch them have fun together.) They rode every ride in the place. Some of them, twice! And I think Ben went on the big swings four times. I sort of lost count!

We also went to the Long Island Children's Museum, and the Nassau County Firefighter's Museum. (located on Museum Row) That was a fun afternoon.

And we had plenty of relaxation - building Legos, going to the park and playing with friends. Summer is nice. But we're all ready for something else.

I am so happy for you that both kids are in school now. I suspect that will be good for all of you! Hope Ben loves prek.
