    We go 50/50

    I cook, he eats

    He wears his clothes, I wash them

    He uses the dishes, I wash them

    He puts the rubbish on the sink, I take it out

    Oh owww! just slid off the couch PMSLing



    My DH isnt too bad. he leaves things wherever he is finished with them without thinking about them needing to be put away by me later- but will tidy the kitchen etc.

    I would like it if he noticed and thanked me a bit more. its a big job looking after DS all day and taking care of the night wakes. I dont expect DH to do that as he works. Cleaning has to fit around DS and the startup of my family day care as well. In a few months i will be studying as well so hope he can chip in more then- But if he noticed and thanked a bit more would be nice.

    love it

    My DH has always been pretty good however he has just taken a new job which is slightly longer hours + longer traveling. On top of that he is doing his Masters and uni is a trimester so pretty much all year around. All of this means I have to take on more - we not **have** to but we chatted about him taking on both the new job and the uni and agreed that it wouldn't leave mush "us" or "family" time. So we agreed the only way we could make it work was if I did a lot more around the house (i.e. most stuff) so that when DH is home and not studying he can spend quality time with me and DS. I'm not sure how I am going to cope as this is the first day of doing both. I guess I'm still finding time to be on here so it can't be all bad!

    Yes, yes I do. I do have to admit, he works as a high end chef, cooks and cleans ALL day at work and usually works sixteen plus hours per day. He is a good mower and yard looker afterer...but I usually do it cause he's either at work or sleeping. ha ha. I just re read my post and my god it really looks as though I need to start looking at other menus.
    It's all good though, just ranting.

    He helps very much! I'm very lucky. It's very rare that I have to do anything, I am definitely getting pampered during pregnancy.

    Hi,

    My man is no handy man, Im the handy woman.

    But he does help willingly around the house with dishes, clothes washing, clothes putting away. And I love him for that.

    For those that say there partner helps alot or 50/50, are u a SAHM mum? when i ask my partner to help out he says no as im a stay at home mum and its my "job" and that if i was working full time he would help..
    but he is good with the kids, just not housework!

    suchislife, your partner eats there, drinks there, sh!ts there, showers there and sleeps there right? He helps make the mess right? Well he should help. It doesn't matter if he works or not.

    suchislife - i'm a sahm, and DH works outside the house for around 55hrs a week.

    He makes his own lunch unless there is LO from dinner. He helps bath the kids, takes them outside to play after dinner so I can have 5 minutes peace and I start dishes then. But he does the dishes some nights too. He'll grab the vacuum out and vacuum if it needs it and I haven't had a chance yet. He hangs out washing for me, or will bring it in on the weekends. He helps to fold it, but I usually put it away. He does ALL the outside maintenance though, weeding, mowing - anything outdoorsy, he was laying retic last week. He'll finish off dinner and dish up while I get kids inside and up to the table, or if I'm doing something else like folding washing. Sorry I'm just rambling thoughts off the top of my head. He is a trained chef though, so letting him loose in the kitchen isn't a bad thing. I edited to add, I do try to get things done so he doesn't have to do alot - he does work those hours so I can stay home with our children. But my point was he's happy enough to pitch in and give me a hand.

    I think its nice and shows respect if they help out!
