    I chose 'other' because while he does so willingly and (mostly) competentley, he still thinks he's a hero for doing so as he works outside the home.

    im lucky im financially independant so its not like dh is supporting our family financially, but even if he was we would both work equal hours at all tasks, paid or otherwise.
    theres no way he'd come home and watch tv drinking beer while there was dishes to do/laundry to fold/children to play tea parties with. he'd be horrified if i suggested it haha!
    Of course I do jobs 7 days a week but I don't mind..my husband gives me everything to be able to stay at home and look after him..our dd and the housr. He takes on the stresses of work and finances so that I don't have to. I like providing a relaxing environment for him to return to. He doesn't drink alcohol or go out..we are homebodies together. It works for us. When both partners are working though the home responsibilities obviously need to be shared.

    * have two 25 minute breaks where I can eat in peace and relax

    * finish a conversation with friends without worrying about the kids

    At home, I don't think I've ever attempted to watch a movie while my kids are with me. I think it's slack. And when at home with kids or at a friend's, it's not a break. You still have to check on the kids, you lose track of conversations, never fully relax.
    Well i only have 1 child so that prob makes a difference. Im slack for occasionally watching a movie when my DD is asleep and the house is sorted? Each to their own.....we are all different with different circumstances!

    I said it would be slack of me to watch a movie. I have only one child who still naps. I'm not going to kick back with a movie when my daughter is awake. That is slack.

    I watch TV sometimes when my DD is awake and she is playing in the lounge. Sometimes she watches it with me

    That's your opinion. Not everyone feels the same way and if they do want to watch a movie they aren't 'slack'. How judgemental.

    Of course it's my opinion. I said "for me" it would be slack, not for you or anyone else. I don't spend my days with my small children chilling in front of the tv, unless it's with them watching abc2 or nick jr, not a 90 minute movie when my son sleeps and my 3 year old entertains herself. When they're older, I will.
