Just need to vent

I was gone most of the day today because I had to go to my guard base about 2 hours away and get some things done, when I got home I took my daughter out to the backyard to play in the pool. I told my husband that he should be outside with us instead of inside playing video games. That did not do anything, and because of this he missed our daughter standing on her own for the first time. When we came inside he didn't understand why I was mad at him. Now he is mad at me! What? What did I do? I just asked him to spend time with his family instead of playing call of duty!! Why should I get the cold shoulder? Is it my fault he missed one of her milestones? No, because I told him beforehand that he should come spend time with us outside.

  • He just feels angry at himself that he didn't listen to you to be with the family & for not listening he missed something so precious, but since men don't like to admit when they are wrong he finds it easier to be mad at you, go figure! lol

  • I totally agree with VanillaBlondie, he is mad at himself and taking it out on you.

  • He is mad at himself and took it out on you and he knows you are right. Also, I have the same problem w/my SO except his obsession is FB

  • hubby says I have a FB obsession, but the only time I ever go on is if my daughter is sleeping. He also now thinks that I spend too much time on this website (again only if she is sleeping, or i I really need advice right away-like when my daughter had pink eye).
