    When I was a SAHM FT I did most things except the ironing and yard work.

    Now that I'm working part time but DH works away I still do everything but now have a gardener that comes in fortnightly.

    If and when dh is home I do absolutely nothing with the kids and focus on the bigger cleaning jobs ie pantry, linen etc. Or just laze around.

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    I do the vast majority of housework. Dh shares the kid stuff when he's home

    When I was a SAHM I did 95% of the house stuff because I wanted him to be able to have quality time with the kids when he was around after working long hours all week. It's always been at least 50/50 with kid care when he was around, but probably more 60/40 because I'd be ready for a bit of a break from the kid stuff after doing it on my own (virtually) all week. Now we are both busy, working long hours and we pretty well tag team these days (sad but true), and we would be equally involved with kid care and house chores. I'm still far more organised with kids stuff though, but I have been doing it for much longer so it makes sense it just flows a bit smoother for me. Kids are always bathed, fed, and put to bed on time when I'm not here (or alternatively, get to school on time with all their bits and pieces...that one was hard for him to adjust to at first but he has got it together now!)
    There are some areas of the house that seem to be no go zones for each of us but it doesn't really matter.
    Appts it just depends, who's free, which child needs the appt, what it is for etc. If he goes to an appt though I have to write him a list of everything that has happened and what he needs to ask. It's still better if I do them, but it's not always practical.
