Her Dad Is Absolutely Clueless

Yesterday my husband’s phone was continuously ringing while he was in bed (thank goodness he put it on vibrate) and my daughter came into the living room while it was ringing. She looked at it and immediately slid the bar to ignore it, only his so called friends are horrible and I knew he was going to get cursed out about not answering the phone but it was too late it had already been done so I just laughed. 

I did ask her why she did that and she said

I’m tired of them taking my dad away from me.

I was floored.

I had no idea she she felt that way or even knew what was going on. I knew they didn’t like it when he left but I didn’t know they knew he was with his friends. 

When he goes off with them he stays gone all day and that happens a lot. They barely see him but he acts like he’d rather be with his friends than his kids. I wrote him off a long time ago but they haven’t yet. I feel they probably will, or my daughter will, soon. 

I told him when he got up what she did and said to me but he was more concerned with the fact that she ignored the phone call and got him “in trouble” with his so called friend. It was like he didn’t care what she had said. Like he wasn’t listening. 

I’m sick of him doing this to our kids. I don’t know if it’s going to get better but I hope so before they write him off too.
