Since moving in with DR a few years ago .he Has done them twice. Once because it was only him at home as I took her boys away for the weekend and once because I was away.. they get done everyday. Usually several times a day. No dishwasher except for me lol.. step sons help when it's on their charts at the breakfast wash though.
Edit. I'm sur my post makes DF sound lazy but he isn't. I just am to OTT about how t dishes get washed and rinsed and Put away. Usually as I go through my process he is bathing DD , putting her in bed and getting the DSS's ready to bed.. but he does work nights 4 or so days a week and a still Manage to get them done

The turning point for me deciding the dishes get done every night and not left until the morning happened one night when I got up to get a drink of water.
It was the middle of the night and the kitchen was dark. I could hear little scratchy noises. I turned on the light and there were about 5 big roaches in an oven tray feasting on the crumbs and leftover garlic butter from the chicken kievs we made for dinner.
So. freakin'. gross

But no matter how clean our place is we still get rats and mice moving on in in winter.

Personally I do the dishes before I go to bed I make everyone wait for me to clean the kitchen then they can have baths showers. So that ways it done but I stay up until about 11 vacuuming and mopping cleaning toilets because my kids leave all sorts over the floor and miss and when you have 2 kids under your feet you can really use chemicals. But I wouldn't feel guilty I just would find it harder to sleep knowing my house is mess but it your tired go to sleep... You can't over do things everyone has their limits.

99% of the time I do as I HATE waking to a dirty kitchen, although today I brought dinner for the kids home from work so haven't done the few dishes we have, but they are rinsed.

Yes. Either by dishwasher or by hand. I tend to wait until kids in bed though as I'd prefer to prioritise their needs before housework especially as I'm working
