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's a sunny Saturday in February and we are hours away from leaving on a well-deserved, much over-due vacation.

I am a mess.

We're still packing.

I've been up at 5 the last two mornings, filled with anxiety over departure. I've slept badly, nights filled with nervous wanderings through empty airports and missed flights.

Once we're on the plane, heading to our destination, I think I'll be better. Right now, I am making endless lists, moving things from one room to another. Worrying the minutia into the ground. I am at the end of a frayed rope, I've yelled at Ben more times this morning than the rest of the week put together. I've clenched my teeth and muttered under my breath.

We will get there, and it will be glorious, I'm sure. But for right now, I'd rather be any place else.

Hope your vacation is wonderful!

I can understand too well. I get all sorts of snappy when we are getting ready to leave. There is always something we forget. Doesn't matter how many lists or such. There is always something I think P grabbed & he thinks I grabbed it...
