Hi! I am a little bit confused as to I am not sure if I am demanding too much from my husband when it comes for him to pay attention and dedicate some time to our 14 month-old baby. My husband works long hours and gets home around 7 - 8 P.M. He does a lot of the chores at home and he is in charge of our two dogs, he is really of big help when it comes to that. However, because of his limited time, his involvement and interaccion with our daughter, in my opinion, it is not sufficient. When he comes home, he says hello to the baby, give her couple kisses, plays with her for 2 or 3 minutes, and this is about it. On the weekends, there is always something that needs to be done around the house, or with friends, but at the end of the day, his interaction with her is about the same as just explained. I always tell him that he needs to have more involvement with the baby as now, she asks for him and when she sees him, she wants to be with him. We are getting into fights over and over because this same issue. Please tell me if I am wrong for demanding some more of his time for the baby.
