How LONG?!?


Alright MLB fans - we've heard a bit of grumbling about the lack of new blog posts. So here we go!

Nap -

Naps. These are the big sticking point nowadays. We're all trying to stick to a schedule to keep the boy happy. The better the daytime sleeps, the better the daytime wakes. Or something like that. I heard it on Oprah.

Well, we're trying to go from two short naps (morning and afternoon) to one loooooong noonish nap. That's what the books say - and we do whatever the books say.

But Ben doesn't always do what the books say...he's a rebel.

Walking the dog -

So the one thing that Patti and I are failing at (unfortunately) is keeping Abby walked, exercised, and not completely bored. Yeah, we give it our best shot, but working, parenting, and keeping sane leaves very little time to walk the dog.

But guess who has alot of time on his hands - Ben. We've been training him hard. Abby seems a little nervous though...

Richmond, VA -

The best part of the holidays was the trip to Richmond, VA - Ben met more family, revisted the ones he's seen before, and made the most of the week of down time. Grandmother Karen the Magnificent and Grandpa were GREAT and let their home be overrun with toys, diapers, and pureed carrots. A few parties, a wedding, and even a baby sitter (twice!) later Ben has had quite the vacation. He wasn't the only baby in the house though - even the little one Airin made an appearance. Hilarity ensued.

Even the big one Rusty made an appearance. Hilarity ensued.

Okay - a few changes to the blog.

First, a new MAJOR LEAGUE BISHOP STORE! Google Ads have become so 2009 and we're gonna slingshot the blog into the new decade. Give the store a look, it's the ad on the right hand side. If you purchase something in the store, Major League Bishop (i.e. Ben) gets a cut - small, but something to put in a college fund. Seriously - any revenue that we get through our ads goes to Ben's college. We'll change the items in the store every now and then. If you see something that you'd like to give as a gift, or something you'd like to give to Ben as a gift, just click on the item and follow the instructions. It's just like buying something online at Amazon.com.

Second, a new feature here on Major League Bishop. We've set up our own email address!

Major League Bishop at gmail dot com.

No, don't write out everything - it's just to keep the spammers from ganking the address. So, each week, we're going to answer our "fan mail" - if you have a question for us - send it in. What did Ben do this week? Are you feeding him well enough? What is his sign? Let us know what you want to know!

It's the best way to grow a blog's audience - interact!
