My husband is a lazy, lazy father! He views spending time with children as "having to deal with them", instead of being happy to spend time with his kids. Why have kids to ignore them and then act like it is the worst chore in the entire world to hang out with them? He has always claimed that he really wanted kids and loves kids, etc. so WTF? And our kids are not bad. In fact, are very, very good and he's lucky to have such good little ones who are mostly happy with only grumpy/whiney times being with good reason (like needs not being met or hurt themselves). Why are some men just crappy Dads who view children as a "job" while others are happy to be Dads who get to spend time with their kids?
