You raise them. You diaper them. You feed them.
You take them on trips to see the world and expand their perspectives.

You do everything you know how to do (and some things you don’t) to give them a leg-up hoping they will become good citizens, productive adults, and happy people.
Mostly you don’t have a clue how this will all work out, in fact, you often feel like most of it has been a waste of time, and then…………. your son plants a garden.

Someone with much less genius built the bridge in the background.
