    My DP would probably do anything, if I asked. That's the problem. I have to ask for him to do stuff. You would think if you see some things I haven't don't or if I'm struggling to stay on top of, he would just do it. Alas, he does not. I have to ask.

    My DP is very good. He does a lot at the moment,
    Dishes, washing, hanging out clothes, folding, makes dinner some nights, mows the lawns. I really can't complain.

    My DP works overseas so I do everything when he's not home. When he is home he does everything except the laundry (because I've banned him - he kept ruining our clothes). I still do stuff when he's home but I know that whatever I don't do he will do or will have already done it when I think to do it! He doesn't work when home so that makes a big difference.

    My DH does anything and everything from cleaning to washing to stuff for the children.

    The only thing he doesn't do is clean poo off cloth nappies 😫

    My DP works

    He takes out the rubbish if my youngest DD hasn't done her job.
    He puts away his washing (if I ask).
    He takes care of the pool.
    Deals with spiders, cane toads etc etc
    Sometimes he will cook.
    Look after my kids if I need to be somewhere.
    Help the kids with their homework (he is much smarter than me).
    All things technology.
    He comes to swap over with my ex provided he is not working as I'm too scared to go alone.

    If I ask, he will generally do anything.

    I don't mind as him working allows me to be with my kids after school and me to complete my degree.

    DH will do any housework if I ask or need help but I do most of it as he works 6 days and when he is home I prefer he hang out with DS ( he is a far better cleaner than I am!) he does do all the lawns, pool, garbage and takes/picks up dry cleaning and gets the cars washed and usually washes the dog!

    I'm really lucky and thankful for my DH as he gets in and helps with everything.

    He does all the things that need doing to run a household, because he is a fully grown man with no physical or intellectual impairments.
