Must Give Him Credit....

I was worried about my husband playing WOW all the time with me going back to work (overnights) and with having a 7 week old daughter, (along with him without a job).  He has gotten her to calm down with watching all the colors and movement on the screen but sometimes I wondered if he was a little TO MUCH into the game.

Well, I got a call at work last night that my daughter had fallen and he was worried something was wrong. (No, she did not manage to hit the floor he caught her and ended up hurting himself rather then her getting hurt.)   I guess he was in the middle of a raid when she started crying and he stopped in the middle of the raid and left because she was crying and he wanted to take care of her and get her settled down.  He is now fighting with his "guild master" over the incident because the guy wants to kick him out all because he left in the middle of a raid to take care of his screaming child.

I've got to admit that means a lot to me that he is at the point of not caring that he is possibly being kicked out for taking care of his daughter because he admits his daughter is more important then a game.

If his guild leader wants to g-kick him for taking care of his child, then your hubby can find a better guild.  I have to give your man props for stopping mid raid to care for your daughter.  I usually try not to schedule anything else during raid nights, because I know that when my man raids his head is not on our kids.  He is a guild leader, so if he leaves everything falls apart.

His guild likes to run everything at night and it's usually fine with my schedule but I'm the head one on nightshift so I'm always on call.  We also don't think his GM realizes our daughter is 7 weeks old.

Quoting Notte_Bella:

I doesn't matter how old the GM thinks your daughter is.  Family comes first no matter what.  He needs to tell his GM to shove it!  I'd go find a new guild.  Makes me wonder how old his GM is.  My husband's GM is an older woman with kids of her own so I know she wouldn't have a fit if my husband walked away in the middle of a raid.

Thumbs up to your husband for having his priorities straight!
