InevitabilityAs parents, we spend 20, 30, 50+ years wondering how our kids will turn out, what they will do, what they will make of their lives, and it’s reasonable for us to assume that, in amongst all that wondering, we’ve covered pretty much all of the likely possibilities.

Which is of course the thing that proves it was worth all that effort raising them in the first place.
