For weeks a five-year-old Lucas kept telling his kindergarten teacher about the baby sister or brother that was expected at his house.
One day Lucas’ mother allowed him to feel the movements of the unborn baby.
The five-year-old was obviously impressed, but made no comment.
From then on he stopped telling the teacher about the awaiting event.
Finally the teacher sat the boy down in class and asked “Lucas, what is the news about the new baby brother or sister you are expecting at home?”
Lucas burst into tears and confessed, “I think Mummy ate it!”
