He said, "Never forget, they're just as smart as you are. They're just less experienced."
At the time, I thought he was sharing a message of love, a heartfelt insight into the incredible minds of our beloved babes.
But now I know better.
"They're just as smart as you are. They're just less experienced."
He wasn't saying, "they deserve your respect because their minds are just as capable as yours."
He wasn't saying, "pay attention, because they will create heartbreaking poetry and art and beauty, even before they can walk or talk."
He was saying, "it is only a matter of time before they acquire the skills to take you down."
And he was right.
