Wednesday is "Built-In Babysitter" Day.

Built-In Babysitter:  a device or person who is located near or close to the parent and is typically used when times of emergency or need arise; typically used because of a high convenience level; i.e. Xbox, fishing, hunting, grandparents etc.

In December, Brandon and I will celebrate our 4th anniversary. In that time, some things have changed in our relationship.

Example: I now pass gas openly....Okay, okay I did that early on, but now I pass gas openly on my husband's body regularly.

Now that I've sufficiently grossed out half my audience and thoroughly embarrassed my mother, I'll get to the point.

When we first got married, B and I would get into knock-down-drag-out fights about the Xbox and how much time he spent with it. My feelings used to get so hurt about the fact that I wasn't that "important" to him.

Then I started a blog. A few months after I started that blog, I started getting comments. A few more months after that, I started making friends with y'all.

And oh how the tides quickly turned. Dude suddenly wasn't okay with me spending all my time reading blogs and commenting on blogs and all the up-keep that blogging requires. He got a taste of his own medicine and boyfriend wasn't liking it.

We soon struck a balance with our hobbies, and time with each other-with the exception of the occasional release of a new Xbox game-was hunky-dory.

Then I started law school and dude was suddenly faced with some serious free time. So his habit picked back up again EXCEPT this time, I had no problem with it. Because studying is time consuming...who knew?duh.

And since your husband is your first baby, you gotta do what you gotta do to make sure your baby is looked after properly. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight?


Even if the turd sweetheart tried to flake on me tonight because he hadn't played Xbox in two whole days.

Key word: Tried

Happy Wednesday.

Lol....I couldn't agree more.
As soon as Big Man picks up that controller I head for the laptop so I can get some blog time in :)
