I just ran into a friend and her new baby. I mentioned to the guy coworker I was with (also a parent of a baby) that the new mama looks great and is putting me to shame 8 month pp. I meant that she was wearing heels, makeup & looked put together.

He responded that of course she looks great, Asian women recover faster. Is that a commonly held belief? I had never heard it before but he said it so matter of factly it caught me off guard. & He's usually so factually accurate. Seemed like an odd thing for him to think was true. Ha - he's probably texting his wife or sister asking if that isn't true.
