#25 is supposed to be a Jewish curse, "You should have kids that give you the same headaches and heartaches you're giving me". I only express it as Jewish, as I learned that one through the "Jewish Experience", it might be the same in the Italian, French, German, Russian, or Apache experiences, just with slight wording differences.
