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.

Something to say

It's been quiet around here.

I haven't had much to say, so I have been avoiding this place. The weather is turning, and the leaves are putting on their fall colors, slowly. We're creeping towards winter again. But I am, as ever preparing for it. I have medication, warm blankets, and a sweet kitty to sit on my knees while I work

The kids are settling into school at last. The first three weeks were short weeks, 3 days each, due to various holidays. Now they have had two full weeks. They will flourish.

We are finally figuring out the puzzle that Ben turned into. He was such a happy kid for so long, then full-time school started and he fell apart at the seams. But there is so much help for him. I'm still working through all the details, it's amazing.

This week, oh, this week. I'm taking time for myself and heading to Atlanta for the Type-A Parent conference. I will learn and I will regroup.

And I will come home with even more to say.

I can't wait to hear what you'll have to say after Atlanta. I'll miss you!!!

I'm glad things are falling into place and you feel prepared for winter. It's good to get a head start. xo

You are such a great mom, and such a great writer. Ben is so lucky to have you fighting for him.
