I think you have gotten some great advice, and a lot of us have been in a similar situation. There was a time when I was just so angry with my DH all the time because I felt like he just lived his life and didn't even care what went on with me and Eleanor. I think now that I look back on it, he just didn't feel like he knew what he was doing as a dad, he didn't know I needed help, and he just kind of stepped back.

I will admit, I did not handle it very patiently... I pretty much flat out told him that I needed him to want to be a part of our lives, to help out on his own and to be interested in us or I was going to get fed up fast. Things did get better after that, but I really don't think that's the best approach. I do think you should talk to him and find a way to really let him know how unhappy you have been and that you want to work together on a solution.
