Feeling a little insecure

What with all of the news lately of pedophile priests in the catholic church I can't help but wonder... Was I an ugly child? I attended catholic school when I was young and none of the priests or nuns ever so much as made a pass at me.

"In the spirit of Faith"

Religious folks of many types are fond of that saying added as a condition when they ask you to consider their ridiculous propositions.

Baby on the way!

After a trip to the OB this morning to potentially set up a hospital induction, the wife was far enough along for the midwife to come out and break waters. Waters were successfully broken at 2:30 pm.



Now it's just the last leg of the "hurry up and wait" game as we anxiously await good contractions and heavy labor. This part can take a few hours before there's any real progress of note, but we can be certain of one thing. This baby will make her debut in the world either tonight or… Continue
