In an anonymous message shared by Love&Pills on Facebook, the man noted that all his kids love cartoons, but his wife’s is on another level.



She doesn’t act like an adult

The confused man said he couldn’t understand his wife’s obsession with animated movies.


According to him, it is so bad that she keeps up with cartoons when the kids are not around and updates them about what happened when they return.

“She’ll be watching animated movies alone. Once they get home, she’s going to narrate all she watched to them and even demonstrate with actions some funny/emotional scenes,” he lamented.



He admitted that as much as he believes something is wrong with his wife, she has not failed in her roles as a wife and mother to his kids.




What do I do?

He reiterated that he worries that she should have grown past cartoons and appealed for help to fix the cartoon problem.

What confuses him is that the woman doesn’t even watch the movies he proposes for them to watch together unless he really encourages her.

“I feel like something is wrong, I don’t really get her sometimes. She acts like me not watching those their cartoons with them, I’m missing out on something great. Is there something I can do to help her?” he asked.


Contrary to his worry, social media users sided with the wife for going down to the level of children, maintaining that she is a good mother who does it for the kids.

“There’s nothing wrong with that. Means you have the best kind of wife and your kids have the coolest mom ever. At least they have things they like in common and can discuss together, she will definitely have a good connection and communication with her kids.”

Nancho Mphale said:

“I can relate she is a good mother she make her house for the kids to feel comfortable. I love this.”

Anna Belle said:

“Omg, what a wonderful wife you’ve got. Cherish what you’ve got man, she’s awesome.”

Nasius Mawunyo said:

“She’s making memories with her kids, you’re missing out. She’s building a strong bond with them. Join them and enjoy the moments.”

“Just join the fun in the house man. If you can’t beat them join them. All things being equal, some cartoons are very nice and educative. As long as it’s not affecting her work and responsibility as a wife it should be cool with you. That’s also a means to be close to your kids, being part of what they love. You need to compromise and fit in with them, trust me, you’ll be fine.”
