the game of life...

so, i thought that for his birthday, ben might appreciate a nintendo plug n' play:

no big deal, right? i mean it's a plug n' play... how entertaining can those games really be? well, last night i had made dinner for ben and maggie and afterwards we were going to meet family at a campfire for some s'mores. i was trying to do the dishes as fast as i could and maggie had a poopy diaper. i called into the bedroom for ben to come and help me... his answer? "i can't right now, hun, i'm working on something." in my mind i'm thinking he must be emailing someone from work, or doing something work related. WRONG. a minute or two later i walk into the bedroom and ben is cursing at the t.v. because he's trying to rescue the princess and can't get past the turtle thingy with nunchucks. nice ben, lie to your wife to get out of changing diapers and doing dishes. next time i'm buying ben a scarf or something. then at least i can strangle him with it if he's playing too many video games...

oh kat kat kat...someone should have warned you. video games are the devil. they consume boys minds and turn them into mush. even more than they already are.




ps. where are you. me & erin think that your inlaws have taken you hostage because its impossible to get a hold of you now.

next year you can give him a poopy diaper for his birthday.

or maybe you guys should just work on making your relationship a little bit more like a video game. you are the princess to be rescued, and to save you from certain destruction, ben has to take the trash out while dodging poopy diapers. hmm?

Kat-
I can totally relate because we have the EXACT same game. Except, I am Ben and Todd is you. Todd gets so mad at me b/c I pay no attention to him once I start playing video games. To make matters worse, my sister gave me a PS2 for Christmas last year. I don't even hear Todd's voice when I'm playing it.
