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.

It seems a change is coming. I suddenly find myself getting ready for something new. Claire is in school all day now, and Ben will be joining her next fall.

I am looking for relevance. I left the workplace, six years ago when Claire was born. Dave and I decided that it was of  paramount importance that one of us be an at-home presence while our kids were young.

But those days are dwindling. And I am faced with a lot of change. A lot of time. How I choose to travel next is exciting and ferociously scary. I can't quite see what I'm supposed to become. But I have faith, after a fashion, that I will figure that bit out in due time.

I'm totally serious here...have you read any Erma Bombeck? There is an essay I have to find for you. It's about rewarding yourself for a job well done, by going out to the world with no regrets.
But, alas....it is a major life change. Like graduating college...
