I had my husbands full attention...

...until....well until...his second love presented itself on ABC at 8:00 PM....and I know you know what I'm talking about...
Needless to say, I "lost" (no pun intended) my cleaning partner and my so called "cleaning party" was officially over. I did get a good 50 minutes out of him. I guess that will have to do for now, right? It's a good thing we have until Saturday.
***************************************************************

I would like to share a story with you about the argument I had with hubby yesterday. It started on Monday when I asked him to change a poopy diaper...he's usual response, "huh, I just changed a poopy one (while he is giving me a smirk)." Which is code for - 'I don't change poopy diapers unless I am forced too' because I can clearly assure you, he DID NOT "just change a poopy one". So, like any mom, I took control and changed the poopy diaper. I wasn't about to wait for him to get around to doing it. P would have had it dried all over his butt by that point.

However, nothing annoys me more than when I have to ASK him to do something. If he notices P has poop...50% of the time he should take the initiative and change it. Why should I have to ask him? And why on earth should I have to listen to him give me some lame (untrue) excuse, like "I just changed a poopy one". COME ON!

I got slightly fired up...and kind of let him have it yesterday (hey, he deserved it). I ended up going to dinner with Nin and when I came home....this is what I found on my pillow from hubby:

MY COMMITMENT TO YOU


1. I will be more helpful and supportive
2. I will feed Parker more and help out
3. I will change more poopy diapers (even the runny ones - eww!)
4. I will never ask where his socks are again
5. I will let you watch The Bachelor in peace and not give you crap about it
6. I will stop grabbing your butt all the time
7. I'm sorry, but number 6 is a total lie. There's no way I can stop grabbing that nice tush of yours.
8. I will try and be a better husband and be more attentive
9. I will love you no matter what (wait, I already do, just wanted to reinforce)

Love you BABA!

Now how can I stay mad at that? But, I'm no sucker...ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS....so I'm expecting to see an improvement this week! Not sure what happened to number 10...he only gave me 9 reasons, but 9 is better than none.

Note to hubby: I don't want to start keeping tally of the # of poopy diapers I change, but if I have to....I will. It could lead to a poopy diaper strike on my end...then your gonna be in big trouble.
