I had a coworker tell me (in response to my question, “Why would you put yourself through all that pain?”), “Once they put that baby on your chest, you forget all about the pain you just went through!”

I would have found the statement more believable if she hadn’t spent the previous five minutes complaining about not getting the epidural. <eye roll> Nevertheless, Susan, the fact that second borns (and more!) exist in the world tells me that your statement is correct.
