Okay. *looks down at his hands* In my time, where we lived, everybody had too many kids. My neighbor had seven, and my dad's sister had nine. We lived with them when I was real little, in a two-room apartment. It didn't have a bathroom, and we kids all slept on the same mattress, pretty much on each other. Ma and my aunt slept in the kitchen. *laughs a little* It was rough, always having somebody's elbow in my face, and my cousin Barry used to wet the bed. *shakes his head* I remember wishin' my aunt didn't have 'em all, that it was just me, or maybe just me and my cousin Anne, because she was my age and the least annoying. But then I think about playin' with Malachy and Barry and all the rest of 'em and even though it was pretty hard growin' up like that, I'm glad they were there.
*sighs* I dunno why I'm telling you this. Sorry. Just saying that I get why sometimes it's a good idea, but... I'm kinda glad she didn't do it. 'Cause now I get to meet your kid, Tony. *gives him a sheepish little smile* Sorry, I know that's selfish of me, but I'm kinda excited.
