The more things change...

The more they stay the same.

Let me pass on a little advice - don't have a baby just to get an extension on your final exam. It doesn't make it any easier. I'm not sure, but I think the number would be in the mid 3 figure range as to how much I would pay to have already written my last final paper. Instead, I'm navigating the first week of my son's life by finishing up my final exam for "16th Century Lutheran and Reformed Confessions".

I'm enjoying the ecclesiology of the Reformed confessions, my chosen topic for the paper, and am especially enamored with the 2nd Helvetic Confession written primarily by Heinrich Bullinger but the truth be told, I wish I was done already.

Today we got the crib & dresser - set up the dresser, had the 2nd doctor's appointment which told us his weight is up to 5lbs 1oz - only 4oz below birthweight, 6 days after birth - not bad considering he was 4lbs 12oz Saturday...

Anyway, all that to say that I'm a devided man, and despite the fact that I'm a new dad, I still have school work to do, so I'm off to do it...

Look at it this way. Yeah you might have to write some papers, but your son gets to live in a world where Luther and Refored thought exists. That is definately a blessing. :)

(Okay, that was a stretch)

Wow, that's a pretty harsh confession. I was baptised and confirmed MS Lutheran, but it would take a team of horses to drag me back to one of those churches now.

Congratulations to you and your wife on the birth of your son. Good luck and God bless.

Some day you'll remember what a whole night's sleep is like. :)
