There’s always that one guy at work, who’ll sidle up to the pregnant lady and make some comment about how they got kicked in the crotch once and they’ve heard that it’s as painful as childbirth. They usually get short shrift, and rightly so. As painful as it may be, there’s no way it can compare to 24 hours (or more) of pushing a watermelon out of your body.
I feel like the husband who wrote this tweet has perhaps used that line in the past, as his wife obviously wanted him to know that nothing he can ever experience will be as painful as when she brought their children into the world. I would perhaps have waited until he was home from the hospital.
