@mike808 My dad had a similar, but more extended version where he detailed the progression of his oncoming mental decline through my teen years, then predicted his remarkable recovery as I entered adulthood and faced the world on my own. Classic.
@macromeh According to my own kids, they believe I have achieved the nadir of my faculties by repeatedly raising observation-based questions about their progress in the simplistic and low-effort child development skills that involve their self-assessed over-developed executive function areas for planning, risk assessment, and responsibility. But what do I know. I’m an idiot, so I’m told.
Technically, Samuel L, you don’t have to fuck a mother to be a father.
Adoption, artificial insemination, step children, etc…
Edit: and technically, the mother isn’t necessarily a mother until later if it is her first child.
