Alonzo's Cinematic Fatherhood: Lesson One

So if I had to choose one scene from one film to represent my first five months of Fatherhood, it would be the stealing of the idol in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Why? Well, when you have spent night after night trying to oh-so-deftly pick up a sleeping baby and/or put down a sleeping baby without waking her, you'll know.

And just as the Titanic is doomed to hit the iceberg which will seal Jack and Rose's fate, and just as Hilts will never be able to jump that final barbed wire fence, you are always going to trip that damn giant boulder.
