This evening it dawned on me, although DH is a wonderful person and provider, some extremely BASIC "chores" around the house are understood by our 2 dd's (2 & 3) but DH can not seem to comprehend. After dinner, as we eat before DH as he likes to eat late, dd's clear their plates on put them in the sink (I don't yet expect them to stack the dishwasher) but DH just leaves it behind him. The clincher tonight was, dinner was on the stove (safely!!) and I was taking in washing. I hear the back door close, I then hear dd1 calling for me, I call out where I am and she pops her head out the door and says "oh there you are mum, I've just popped the heater on and was closing the doors to keep it cosy inside" as she knows the heater doesn't go on before dinner (it doesn't have any open flame or anything to burn). Anyway DH comes in the house opens the front door and the back door wide then leaves to the garage to keep repairing his car.
In that moment I thought, how f'ing hard is it when a 3 year old gets it!!
am I alone here, or are other SO like this???
