Frankly, we are all happier if he isn't around for the morning routine. He's a perky morning person and DD and I aren't so we like to wake up slowly. He goes out and gets me a coffee before he leaves and that's the best thing he could do for our routine
We get plenty of quality time as a family and he loves what he does so it works really well. If he hated it or I wasn't coping we'd rejig.

Hi OP here!!
Hubby is self employed and does long hours six days a week. I was telling him how I wish we spent more time together as a family like most people do and he said most dads work as many hours as him, seems he's right, I hate being wrong!!!
I also said Id like more help at home and time out from the kids but seems theres a lot of other mummas in the same boat...
Oh well, worth a try

I'm tempted to show this thread to MY DH, to show him how much harder most other Dad's work than he does.
