Why do some people think that a SHAM is responsible for everything in the home? Kids and cleaning and whatever else!
I am a SHAM and am not a servant to my husband or kids! After a 12 hr shift I don't expect my DH to walk in the door and get to work scrubbing the toilettes or anything. I do expect him as a father to help with the bed time routine.

I think it is going to be different in each household. Yes, my "job" is to take care of the household and that includes cleaning, taking care of our son, making sure all the bills are paid each month, taking care of my husband, etc. My husband works from 7 pm- 7 am for 7 days and then has 7 days off. As far as bedtime routine goes, of course, I do it on my husband's work week and I do it on his off week as well. The main reason though is because I know the routine and I know what my son wants/expects/needs. So in our house I take care of everything in the house, our son, and my husband. My husband works full time, goes to school full time, and plays with our son. That is his "job". The only other thing that I would like is for my husband to pick up after himself. If it doesn't happen then I'll do it myself. No big deal to me.

I'm a SAHM and i do everything in my house, but my husband helps with the children and cooking but hates cleaning and i exceptthat because that was what the deal was when married. I love cleaning aroundthe house and everything seems so easy even with 5 young children. My husband works from 7am until 6pm sometimes the times change because he has a very demanding job but he loves it and it pays extremely well. I would not say we are maids but we are women that bring up our children and are able to spend more time with them unlike working mums, who are amazingly able to do that to (i wouldn't be able to lol).
