This little anecdote makes me smile – the wonder that is a child’s mind!
First time round pregnancy is, without a doubt, the most life-changing event any woman will experience. But it also changes the lives of those around you, like the five-year-old who had been telling his teacher how excited he was about the baby brother or sister that he was soon to have.
One day, his mum let him feel her bulging tummy for signs of movement and the boy was obviously impressed, but made no comment.
When he stopped mentioning the baby in class, the teacher sat him down and asked, “Whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?”
The boy burst into tears and confessed, ‘I think Mummy ate it!” ~ Heather James
