young wife and old Issa

Issa original
David English
sakuo renku

1818, Age 56Fifth Month, 4th day, the first daughter, Sato, is bornOn New year his wife is pregnant with fifth month baby.

This ku is an answer from his young wife to Issa.

David's comment
Yokudoshi is an old word that means "to be greedy"; see Kogo dai jiten (Shogakukan 1983) 1704. Is this haiku a gentle slap at Issa's wife, Kiku?
