SB 10.14.12
utksepanam garbha-gatasya padayoh
 kim kalpate matur adhoksajagase
kim asti-nasti-vyapadesa-bhusitam
 tavasti kukseh kiyad apy anantah

Translation:
O Lord Adhoksaja, does a mother take offense when the child within her womb kicks with his legs? And is there anything in existence — whether designated by various philosophers as real or as unreal — that is actually outside Your abdomen?

Purport:
Srila Prabhupada comments as follows on this verse in Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Chapter Fourteen: “Lord Brahma therefore compared himself to a little child within the womb of his mother. If the child within the womb plays with his hands and legs, and while playing touches the body of the mother, is the mother offended with the child? Of course she isn’t. Similarly, Lord Brahma may be a very great personality, and yet not only Brahma but everything that be is existing within the womb of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Lord’s energy is all-pervading: there is no place in the creation where it is not acting. Since everything is existing within the energy of the Lord, the Brahma of this universe and the Brahmas of the many other millions and trillions of universes are existing within the energy of the Lord; therefore the Lord is considered to be the mother, and everything existing within the womb of the mother is considered to be the child. And the good mother is never offended with the child, even if he touches the body of the mother by kicking his legs.”
