I was there when my dear friend gave birth to her daughter.

Best post-partum exchange:

My friend’s partner: I wonder how old she’ll have to be before I can teach her to use a chainsaw.

My friend: Well, I think she’ll have to be bigger than the chainsaw.

    After my daughter was born, the nurse came in and asked her mother if the pain medication had kicked in yet.

    She looked at me and said, “I think so – he’s looking a lot more relaxed.”

    Doesn’t sound like she was drugged to high heavens, at least, like my mother was. She didn’t even know who I was when I took my brother and held him. ;)
