@kvruns You are too sweet, I can't imagine being in your shoes and still thinking of nice things to say. With that being said, after reading your post, I had a thought. Maybe your DH just doesn't know how to be a good dad besides the financial/provider part of it. I mean think about it, way back when thats how it worked, dad provided and mom cared for the children. Maybe he just doesn't know how to do the emotional/hands on stuff.
