I don't know if I'm just being hormonal and needy or if my husband really is just tuned out. It seems he comes home from work and if we aren't eating or cleaning up from dinner he's playing video games. It always seems like he NEEDS something to do. I'm home all day with our son and by the end of the day I'm fine with just sitting and chatting but he's on the phone or on his playstation constantly. He's got stuff at work on Wednesdays so I see him maybe 2 hours that day. Then on the weekends he's either napping, gaming, or wanting to do things with his friends. We have a 8month old and another on the way yet it seems like he's stuck in high school. The people at his job go out and drink and of course he goes... He doesn't say oh ill be home this time or anything like that he just shows back up at home at whatever time of night or morning. I'm beyond irritated and every time I talk to him about it he always claims he understands and he's going to change but we always end up right in the same spot. I don't want my sons to grow up thinking daddy is just interested in himself and no one else. How can I go about telling him and getting it through his freakin head?Answer Question

Do what he is doing back on to him. One weekend/your DH's days off. After everyone is up. Tell your DH you are going somewhere. shopping, have to run to the store for something. (You can do this with or with out your child, I would leave the child at home with him). And just do not come back. After about 6 to 12 hours. Go home. And non Chalantly say you ran into a/some friend/s and forgot about the time. Go about your business like it was nothing. See how he likes it.
If that does not work. Like PGA said. He is acting like a single man. Time for you to make him one. And get rid of him.

Make plans in advance for the weekends that include him. Take a trip to the zoo, aquarium, beach, playground, library, stroll the mall, picnic at a park etc. You have to make the plans in advance & TELL him what you are doing. Then find a sitter or take the baby out to a restaurant at night then take a walk in town. Make plans for a date with him alone at home after the baby is asleep. GL!
