I am a 22 year old SAHM to two girls, ages 2 and 4 months. My fiance has a very physical job and works all the time. He leaves at 7 a.m. and a lot of the times doesn't get home until 7p.m. or later and usually works every day of the week. Our girls miss him terribly, and when he is home he is tired and lays on the couch and watches tv or sleeps. I know he is exhausted from work but our girls need daddy time. I have asked and asked him to slow down at work and be home more, but he refuses because he is the only one working, yet when I say about getting a job he gets mad because he makes enough money. What can I do to make more family time???

I like Andrea's idea. That sounds like it wouldn't be to much to ask.

How would he go with having a specific job in the evening, like reading their bed-time story, or giving them their bath? If it's reading that he does then they can just snuggle up on the couch with him.
