I wish i could be a stay at home mom, but that is impossible. I work mostly nights at a restaurant as either a Waitress, or a bartender. While i'm working I leave my son at home with his dad.
He's a great dad, but he does things that bother me, a lot, and i'm not sure how to tackle things.
I call him on my break and ask "what did you guys have for dinner" and its never anything good.. Either hot dogs, or they ordered something in, or he says well he "snacked" and he was tired, so he went to sleep.. I dont like that, i want him to eat a good dinner.. not "snack" and go to sleep. Anytime i bring it up, he gets very defensive.
Another thing, is when they eat dinner, they will eat in the living room- at the coffee table. I know he wasnt raised to eat in the livingroom watching TV, and neither was I, and I dont want my son to think its okay. But once again, I'm working and i cant do anything about it. I tell him to try to keep him at the table, and he doesn't listen. I dont know what else i can say or do to have him respect my wishes.. i feel like its very lazy..
