Making a human is serious business, and now that they are safely out of womb, it’s time to laugh again! Seriously. This baby-birthing stuff is hard and overwhelming and forever life-altering. Don’t lose your sense of humor now! You’re gonna need it. That, and wine. So much wine.

Here are 10 things that we all should laugh about once baby is born.

1. The pads they send you home with are thick as hoagie rolls. It’s like riding a giant cheesesteak. Or a horse. Saddle up and laugh!

2. Your post-baby stomach feels like dough. Go ahead and poke your belly button and exclaim “hehe!” like that adorable little dude made of the stuff. It’s pretty fun!

3. The baby doesn’t sleep, so you don’t sleep. Use that new-parent fog for a good time! You’re so exhausted that your partner’s jokes are funnier...
