How about the ones who didn't have you, Mrs Pip, and Harry staying immediately after the birth get to have him for the London visit?

How about the first one to master the story telling of 'Where's My Cow?' - WITH sound effects, gets to babysit?

Google is like a genie, you get what you ask for, not always what you actually wanted.
