Hello and welcome to a strange new world. You have traveled far through the desert, only to be met time and again by one empty oasis after another. You are lost and alone, wandering, wondering if someone, anyone, knows how you feel. And just when you think you can't go on, and no one could possibly understand your struggle, a hand reaches out to you, lifts you to your feet, and carries you to the promised land. He feeds you knowledge, shelters you from the self-righteous (and the ridiculous), and provides you with the tools you need to survive in this brave new world. You are a stranger in a strange land, but you are not alone. Let him be your guide. Follow closely as you travel together on this adventure of a lifetime. For now, you are a foreigner to "Fatherhood" but soon YOU will be the master of this realm.

"No Man is Expendable!"

This is Fodder 4 Fathers...


I found this while researching another topic, and it gave me pause:

Marshall University, 2003 Study: Behavioral change in first-time expectant fathers' aggression

Apparently my grade seven Science Fair hypothesis that plants would grow better with apple juice than they would with milk isn't the dumbest science experiment ever done.

But, to the geniuses that came up with this one, I have two questions:

1) Why were they studying the fathers?


2) By "limitations" did they mean the angry pregnant wives who kept calling every five minutes to find out where the hell their husbands were and why they weren't at home at their beckon call?

Maybe they should have studied the occurrence of fear instead? But why start at pregnancy when you can go all the way back to the wedding day; or the nine months leading up to that?

On that note: A quick shout out to my future brother-in-law, Marc: "Congrats on the Engagement! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy..."
