For the past year i landed a good job but the downfall is i only see my daughter on Saturday and Sunday. I always work overtime and my girlfriend has been getting mad at me because she says i value money more than her and our little girl. I told her that i have to support our family and i can always spend time with our daughter in the future (Our daughter is 2 years old). When i said this she got mad at me and is now refusing to talk to me. I told her that she is acting like a 2 year old then we got into a big argument.
Should i take some time off of work? Should i apologize for saying those things to her or should she apologize? She has been getting really moody with me lately. My girlfriend work too but less hours than me.

You need to take her emotions in consideration, understand how she feels and offer your deepest regards in not being able to spend time with them. If she "feels" that you miss her, want to spend more time with the family and love them dearly. It will make her feel better.
Once you do this, now you can switch to Logic / realistic reasoning. The nuts and bolts is that right now the money is important and that you doing this for the future for the family and that you have to sacrifice this time.
- offer some plans / solutions to spend with everyone. She will feel better know how much you care and that you want the same as she does.0
