Monica would get on well with Willie:
Little Willie, feeling mean
Pushed his sister through a screen
Mother stopped his innovations
Said it made for strained relations.
Little Willie, mean as hell
Threw his sister in the well
Mama said, when drawing water,
"Gee, it's hard to raise a daughter."

My Monica's a disappointing child.
I try, of course. She's just so wild.
She set Louise on fire. And Matilda -
somehow she got hold of a croquet mallet and killed her.
And she fed
If only there were a saint
for disappointing children. But there ain't.
I'm guessing it's a question of demand. Who among us has not been a disappointment to our illustrious ancestors, at one point or another?
bilby commented on the word disappointing children
It seems wise therefore to have disappointing children as there is plural intercessionary vang at hand, apparently more so than for any other kind.
Unless your children are diseased cattle.
