I guess the new wore off...of our newborn :(

Our son is 6 weeks and it seems like the "new" has worn off of or newborn for my DH.


For hits first few days of life, even weeks, dh really WANTED to spend time with him and myself. Now I can barely get him to spend an hour with us.





Its breaking my heart and now ds is starting to smile and hold his head up but dh would rather spend his time playing his xbox.





I really hoped that he wouldn't go back to his old ways..at least not this quickly. I realize that this is how he "unwinds" after work but it hurts my feelings that on his one day off a week he chooses that over us :( but especially over ds.





What can I do without starting an all-out fight. I don't care about the gaming--i gave that fight up long ago, but when the most interaction he as with his son is him sitting in his lap while I'm cooking or something and dh still has a controller in his hands I feel like he, dh, is missing out and that ds is losing valuable time with his daddy :(

I'm a big fan of putting shock collars on unhelpful spouses.

If that were me, the Xbox would mysteriously break.  

Over and over again.

Yes.  That would work as well.  Or we could enslave the world with shock collars.  Imagine how peaceful it would be.
