Dad Chooses Video Games Over Family Time 🎮💔

This mom of two is at her wit's end! 😩 Her husband has been spending more and more time playing video games, even skipping out on family events like parades and their daughter's art fair. 🎨👧 The kids seem to be taking it in stride, but mom's heart is breaking. 💔 To make matters worse, he borrowed money from his mom (with whom our protagonist has a strained relationship) without discussing it first! 😠 When confronted about his lack of involvement, hubby just laughed it off and went back to gaming. 🎮😒 Can you believe it? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💬
