On babies

Having a discussion with a friend.  On the subject of my being willing to give my firstborn for sun and heat, he expressed disappointment.

On my enquiring as to the reasons for this, it generally being accepted as a relatively high price to pay for something, the following answer was forthcoming:

Well it is just your first born, it is the practice one, right?

Remember your first paper airplane? Or the first time you rode a bicycle?

But it got better the more you did it. Babies are a pretty complicated thing as well, I mean they have lots of parts, so they must be hard to make.
