Books have been written about it, jokes have been told about it, mothers have mused about it, and now a recent surge in interest in this poignant subject has been felt across the bloggersphere as a drama on exactly that subject was recently shown on Sky Arts about it.
Now obviously being a pseudo granny-mum and perfecting my art of the Reverse Lie-In, I was already tucked up in bed at time of screening but you can find out more about it from Single Mother Ahoy here.
Or else, you can just read my poem that I wrote on the subject….
What if men had babies?
How strange would that be?
Their pecs would become swollen with milk
A baby instead of beer in their tummy
Imagine the body odour
As profusely they would sweat
And the man rage as the hormones
Made them behave like a crazed pet
Oh yes they’d have more to worry about
Than just a spot of man flu
Would they take the whole thing like a man?
Or wish the one giving birth was you?
Yes would what it be like if men had babies?
Would the human race die out?
Just as well it doesn’t happen then
It’s too much to even think about!
