The preferred mistress

I hate it, I hate it, I just hate the way he watches TV as if no one/nothing exists. He could be doing so many other things, really; like cleaning his study (which currently looks like a store room. Nop, actually store rooms looks tidier) What about reading? which he does actually, reads the paper back to back, reads all his magazines. taking Alysha to the park, reading her a book, doing some activity with her.

But like all other mothers I have to complain that he just does not spend the free time he has with his kids, he'd rather spend it watching TV and it does not necessarily have to be any particular program, it could be anything at all, anything.

How would you turn something like that around? I have tried and have absolutely given up.

On the other hand, I also am aware that it is a lot better than him being out of the house and finding pastures new (Ahem! if you kow what I mean). So I'd rather him watch TV anytime of the day.

Below is a pic of him doing what he does best! Of course I contributed to it by bying him the easy chair for his birthday to which he sticks to like glue


This is what I would like him to do more of.


And this is his other favorite pass time. Well, at least here he somethime involves the family :)

Guys will be guys. We cannot expect too much from them, yet we have to be happy with the best they try to be!

Hey..Sha,
I think all men.. will do that if they could. So a need for early training is a must. If you let him go so long already.. then a good talking and discussion session is necessary now.. and do not expect immediate change.
Men are all the same.. ! if you put it off because you are afraid. .that he might go for newer pasture.. then you will be living in fear.. all your life. But please do not nag at him.. just have a discussion with him.. outta the house.. without the children.. when he is in a good mood.. ;)
DO NOT NAG..! DO NOT FIGHT..!
My two cents worth only of course..hhehee!!
Papa BoK and I have come a long way.. with this issue.. and now.. no problem.. he helps.. before he sticks his butt.. on the computer chair.. haha!!
