Steve alarms Annie by bringing the children to see Leah before she can explain the situation to them.

(Strip Number 4644, Original Publication Date, 4 July 1986)

Panel 1: As she puts Leah in her crib, Anne tells Elly that Steve's taking this a lot better than she has and has pretty much been doing so since they were in the delivery room when Leah was born.

Panel 2: She then tells her about Steve's attempt to jolly her into calming down by saying that a twelve-fingered child would be a good piano player.

Panel 3: Fate is tempted when Annie tells Elly that she doesn't know what to tell the boys and will have to pick a time to tell them about Leah and how families stick together in times of crisis.

Panel 4: That time is now because for some alarming reason, Steve has brought the Devil Children to see the baby.

Summary: Great. Not only is he a pack-rat, an adulterer and a layabout, he has all the comic timing of the Bay Of Pigs invasion. It takes time to get people to let go of self-doubt like this.
