A mother has taken the adage "win at the starting point" to new heights by signing up her still unborn baby for a playgroup.
The story came courtesy of a netizen on a discussion forum, who said it was about a distant relative who is three months' pregnant.
The relative, the netizen continued, went to an education center, asking if she could apply in advance for her unborn baby.
The shocked staff said they do not accept applications that far in advance.
The relative was undeterred and asked if there were courses a newborn baby could take, but the staff said she should wait until the baby is at least a year old.
Fellow internet users seemed to agree with the staff, calling on the mother to keep calm and exclaiming: "Here another monster parent is born."
