Real Life

Unkindest cut

My nephew Kaleb (5) was looking through his mother’s photo album of when he was born (which was a C-section). He was shocked to discover that he had been cut from his mother’s stomach and said to his mum, “Please don’t eat me again, Mummy. Why did you eat me?” And, “Can you have another baby so you can eat them too, so I’m not the only one?” I still laugh about it today.
