Ouch.

The third sense seems rather cruel, but I suppose it depends on the individual and the nature of the usage.

afterthought

1. A subsequent or second thought.

2. Reflection after the act; a thought which did not occur at the time when the matter to which it refers was under consideration: hence a later expedient, explanation, or device.

3. colloq. The youngest child in a family, esp. one born considerably later than the other children.
