How can I get my husband more involved in our son's life?

My husband loves our son but sometimes it seems like he would rather do other things than hang out with us. How can I get him to see how much fun it is to do stuff with us?

  • Suggest a mini family vacation, go to the local zoo, playgrounds, carnivals (if your son is old enough for the kiddie rides)....

  • Go get your hair done, nails. What ever leave the two of them by themselves for a few hours. I had to leave for a week before my hubby felt that he could take care of our daughters. He know stays with them all the time while I have adult time. Good luck.

  • Set your son in his lap, kiss them both and walk out the front door. Take yourself out for an hour or two and let them have some time to bond. Do this a few times, then put yourself back in the equation and start doing some things as a family. You'll have your wish in no time.
