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.

I need to start processing it. I walked away full to the brim. I gained more than I ever hoped that I would.

I made connections - I learned about myself, my sense of self as a writer. I found confidence.

Most important, I found my people. The tribe of women who understood me, laughed with me, and will hold me up when I need it. They are there, and they are a powerful force.

I'm already counting the days until next year.

There was some photo silliness with @ThePJMama

I totally get you! I always learn stuff at Type A but the biggest draw is that they are my people!
