Husband’s jokes about our kids aren’t funny

DEAR HARRIETTE: I don’t find the jokes my husband makes about our children funny.

Harriet Cole

He jokes about the need to get away from our kids all the time. I heard him “joke” about how fun his life would be if he wasn’t a dad.

I know he loves our children. He’s a great dad to our young kids, but his jokes don’t make me laugh much.

I’m afraid a part of him really regrets having children. Should I confront him with these “jokes”?

— Hurtful jokes

Dear hurtful jokes: You should definitely talk to your husband about it — mainly for the kids.

If they hear him say that, which they surely will, they might think he’s serious.
