  • You don't tell us how old either of you are, or how many other children you have or how old they are. But I would think it is his age and he is older now with "his own activities", still it's no excuse, but I would say it is a man thing. Especially if the two of you have been married awhile. Do both of you work, if so then I would discuss this with him. If only he works, then he may think of this situation as your job. But I feel either way he could help out. For the chilrens sake it's called bonding.

  • I'm sorry, I am 36 and he is 32 and we have 5 children range from age 15 to 8 months...and yes he works 9-5 but not on the weekends...I dont ever seem to get a break..the only one that really helps out is my 15 yr old daughter if i didnt have her, I would never have help....

  • nope, number 5 on the way, and when we get back from the hospital, he will pull night shift for 6 weeks, and then go back to work and we will do 50/50! We would not have this many children or plan on more if he were not an active parent! Good luck

  • Does he do things with your other kids, if so then I would let it go.
