"old enough to understand and be excited by the prospect of a new baby"

"My youngest brother was conceived when I was seven, old enough to understand and be excited by the prospect of a new baby. I have a clear memory of our parents sitting us down and asking us if we would like a new brother or sister. "Yes!" was the enthusiastic reply. "Good, because we're having one!" Looking back, this could no doubt be called a welcome surprise. For me, the moment of revelation of a new sibling - and friend - on the way was certainly a joyful one. My dad's moments on the couch following his vasectomy a short time later were probably less so."
