3V1049.01 Finger counting: [I want fifteen childs] (12/6/80)

Asked if she thought it would be nice to have a baby, Peggy held up her
hand and said, “I want a baby. a boy, and a girl.” holding up a finger for
each. We tried again, “Peggy, the baby will be a little boy or a little
girl.” “I want a baby, a boy, and a girl.” By this time, she was running
out of fingers and had to bring up the other hand. Finally, Miriam
asked her how many boys and girls she wanted, and Peggy responded, “I
want 15 childs.”
