- The feeling in a child's limbs that tells him or her that it's good to run and to play.
- The feeling in a child's mouth that tells him or her that it's good to speak and sing.
- The feeling in a child's soul that tells him or her that it's good to be curious about the world.
- The feeling in a child's heart that says that sitting inertly on a coach for hours on end because 'Mommy is tired and play can come when they're older' is unfair because they get so bored.
The reason why Mira is evil and wrong and selfish is that she doesn't think it's especially smart or fair or right to expect little children to sit on their asses until their brains rot away due to sensory deprivation merely because their mother sucks at budgeting time and is too passive and weak to tell someone who's there anyway to shove his bullshit about muses up his fat ass and be a real father instead of a jerk like that ass with the train fetish. What she is loathe to admit is something Marian had no problem telling her daughter when observing the same phenomenon back in 1980. Marian just plain gave a spoiled child who was too damned young to parent her right name. Mira isn't that blunt. She also doesn't quite get that Deanna thought she had a plan A to handle that which reveals another horrible thing about her.
