Selfish in the extreme.
Put the books down and try raising your kids for a while.
Do you know what it's like? I have kids time and I have personal time. Everyman needs his cave. I'm never allowed to enter it. Anyhow things have got better since that post. I have put my foot down with all of them. Back off or the kids lose a father. I mean really this is over reading. What it is, is that my father-in-law is a prick who can't read and so it's supreme jealousy on his part to find a bookworm in his midst. He feels intimidated. He doesn't understand the fascination.
He likes fishing, I just don't see the fascination in that. Do I put him down for it? Of course not it's horses for courses. Shit if I lived in his world I'd be very narrow minded. Well I guess thats what you get for a white guy growing up in apartheid South Africa. His lost his control and supremacy over his kaffirs.
Fucking idiot. Our relationship was fine till he started poking his nose in. I would look after the baby. When she slept I'd get in some reading time.
Now I'm in bloody South Africa. When it's babies nap time he's on at me to do something productive. And yes I have a full time job so when I'm off I like to relax and read when the kids a sleeping.
Now do you understand???
