I voted other.
My hubby is barely here. When he is around, I am lucky if he thinks to mow the lawns, or something.
He picks up after himself and he picks up after the kids.
But most jobs he needs to be asked.
I don't really think about it much though. If he was around more he would do more.
Unfortunately he has been working stupid hours so long, I almost forget what it was like when he was around more.
I am sure he did stuff pretty equally.

DF FIFO so when he is home we work together to get what needs to be done completed, when he is away I do as much as I can without compromising caring for DS1&2 and myself.

I said "other" because he will occasionally do a bit of washing up...but it has to be his idea...he will be less likely to do something if he is asked. It is not as if he refuses to do stuff..he just doesn't do it.
Fortunately, my kids a pretty self sufficient, because when DH is left in charge, he spends all his time at the shed, so even though technically there is an adult on the premises, the kids are not really getting any supervision. If one had an accident, the other one could go to the shed to get him.

DH doesn't do much. He use to bath DS and give him dinner (re-heat pre cooked food) but that's it and even that's stopped now and I'm doing it. I do everything around here including making him lunch for work. As well as my uni work.

Only with plenty of reminding but even then not really.
I mean, does mowing the lawns count when that only takes half an hour and he gets to sit down for the rest of the day while I do all the rest?

My DP is pretty good, he works full time and still cooks tea for me every night and he's good at helping out with the housework and taking care of my 6mo DS on the weekends as well
