I started thinking about sweet, sweet epidurals after reading a Facebook post in which a husband expressed great pride that his wife had all their children naturally.
That made me think of my husband, who always smiles and laughs when I go on tangents about how much I love epidurals.
Any man whose wife has her child naturally should be proud, because the woman that does that is a freaking soldier and my hat is eternally off to her.
If I labored naturally Tyler would be proud of me. But I am most emphatically not that kind of soldier. And he is still proud of me.
So while this started out as a post about the magical epidural, it is ending with one of the most cliched online sentiments out there: I love my husband.
Just because it's cliched doesn't make it less true.
