Lyric of the Moment 10

"Everybody's lookin' for love, oh-oh /
Ain't that the reason you're at this club, oh-oh
You ain't gon' find it dancin' with him, no-oh
I got a better solution for you, girl, oh-oh"

     ~ Jason Derulo, In My Head

Otherwise known as: Jason Derulo misuses wisdom to get in your pants.

The better solution is not to go home with him to "get down to business, and skip foreplay."

New Dad Confession 4

I think I have the first part of fatherhood down pretty good - wanting children, a strong desire to be a good dad and husband, a critique of the erosion of family values in western culture, growth in building a strong character and personal integrity, etc.

Turns our the second part of fatherhood, actually living those things out in the mundane moment to moment of daily life, is pretty dang hard.

"Yet our modern society is stuck in puberty. Relativism has become the dominant operating system in a culture that scoffs at what we once knew, too rebellious to respect the wisdom of our forefathers, too self-sufficient to seek the truth, and worst of all, many times just too lazy to bother."

     ~ New Fundamentalists: Beyond Tolerance by Fr. Daniel Brandenburg

With young adults, when we choose between moral norms we don't really understand and pleasure that we experience, it makes sense that we'll often choose pleasure.

New Dad Confession 3

Every formerly "normal" dude behavior like speeding, mild weaving through traffic, jaywalking, walking through construction zones (you know, the usual), etc., now comes with a conscience dialog objection of, "Do you know why I stopped you?  You realize you have a baby with you right?"
