So my husband almost got kicked in the balls yesterday for telling me that I don't do "THAT much" in the morning. We were 15 vital minutes late getting out of the house yesterday and I was irritated so I asked him for more help in the mornings. He smugly agreed. We both got up at 6 this morning (he usually sleeps an extra few minutes) and by the time I was done with my 15-20 minute shower/bathroom routine he had our son up and dressed eating breakfast, son's lunch packed, and was in the bedroom making the bed. Hmm. I was mildly impressed, until I walked into the kitchen and noticed 1.) Son's lunch was made, but not packed. Apples were sliced, but not peeled. Sandwich was made but not cut or put into it's container with the ice pack. 2.) Son was dressed but not buttoned up (meaning son dressed him self with no help lol). And 3.) Dishes from making breakfast/lunch were still dirty in the sink.
So, basically my husband is a CHEATER! Lol. Now I am not complaining, I really appreciate his help, but I find it funny that he was so certain that it shouldn't take THAT much time in the morning, and to show off he cuts all these corners to get the job done lol. Is there anything your husband thinks he can do better than mom can?

Mine is a much better cook, but I'm better at laundry. When it comes to running this household, he knows I'm irreplaceable! :p

My DH doesn't even try any more. And rarely complains about how I do it. Or how long it takes. My DH does try to say once in a while how long it takes me to get ready to go some were. I just tell him. "Because I take a shower and you don't." I tell him too. "You should be glad I do not wear make up."
