Excerpt from 'There's a HOUSE inside my MUMMY'

This children's book was laying around my friend Mike's house, to be read to his 2-year-old son Jack, who is expecting a baby sister. The general story is a father explaining why mummy's stomach is so big - -Mike pointed out a couple suggestive passages.

My daddy says I lived there too
When I was being made,
But I don't remember very much
About it, I'm afraid.

He always likes to tell me
It's a lovely place to be,
He knows because he's
seen it
On the hospital's T.V.


I just can't wait to meet him
I hope that he's alright,
My daddy says, be patient,
As his door is rather tight.

There's a HOUSE Inside My MUMMY
Giles Andrae & Vanessa Cabban (2001)
