Anything big that requires building my hubby does - last weekend we has our carpenter build the patio but DH and I put the whitegum poles in - I was mixing cement and DH and DS1 where putting the cement in the holes (DS1 with his own little wheel barrow and shovel)
DS2 (8months) was asleep but when he woke up, he was sitting in his high chair outside with us.
Hubs and I built our vege patch - DS1 sat on the bobcat with DH whilst he put the sleepers down and the soil in.
Like I said today im doing my photo wall. Currently DS2 is sitting on a mat next to me playing and DS1 is helping me position frames (on the floor), choose pictures (he's loving this part).
I'm home 7 days a week and spend all my time with my kids. We go to pg, kindy gym, three yr old kindy and the library. We spend a lot of time outdoors (we have 360acres) feeding our animals, bush walking, building etc.
If you read above you'll see I said that we live next door to my DHs parents (they have a 2000 acre farm) and my DS1 loves going with his Pa (my FIL) Occasionally (usually once a fortnight ish) my FIL will take DS1 for half a day, they go and do farm stuff - crop checks, feeding the cattle, driving the loaders or tractors, harvest time etc. so I usually take the opportunity to get stuff done that I may not be able to do whilst DS1 is not around.
Hope that answers yours question
Hoping for #3 soon!
And the dog and the cat! Aside from that I have declared that I'm going to let it keep going until it turns into a hoarders home, then let it burn down and start again, lol.
I usually use the time my little one is up to do the cleaning. We do it together. She rides on my back whilst I do the floors. I let her empty a cupboard when I do the kitchen. She hides under blankets when I do the bedroom. I sit down with a clean house when she naps.
Then my husband comes home......(what is it with men and freaking mess!!!??)
Also forgot to add in relation to me, studies have found that the more they help with the chores the more likely women are to put out (to put it politely). Maybe we need to just make a list for the men. They keep the house clean, we're available afterhours for baby making practice. I know I'd certainly have more energy and enthusiasm.
