And are you a working mom or a stay-at-home mom?
I work FT and still do the majority of the things around the house and starting to wonder just how much is he getting over. We have a house so he does take care of all things 'outside' but I don't think that should excuse him from helping out inside too. For ex, I own the entire laundry process and for a household of 4, that's a lot! I also cook all the dinners, he will cook bfast on Sunday mornings; he vacuums but not on a consistent basis; I do all of the mopping, changing sheets/towels, getting the kid's clothes out everyday. He does do the dishes on nights that I cook, but if we eat out or have leftovers, I do the dishes and I monitor the bath process for the kids 5 nights of the week and he only has 2.
So how does it go in your house?

Hubby will do whatever I ask or leave undone. He tried to get away from combing our daughter's hair talking about "My fingers are too big to braid." I fixed that by bringing my big head mannequin doll to his lap and giving instructions to him and our oldest son for 3 twist braids and also for 2 twist braids. They learned. If they hadn't learned or try to get out of any housework, I'm notorious for going "on strike." Men will only get away with what you let them!

I am a SAHM and I do the majority of the housework. I am home alone from 7:30a-5p so really there shouldn't be anything FOR him to do when he gets home. On his days off from work he helps out around the house. He loves to mop the floors so every Sunday he sweeps and mops the floors and on his days off he cooks a big breakfast. We share making supper, it's actually a family effort and not a one person job here. Kitchen cleanup after supper is also a family effort and not a one person job. Hubby and I and the 3 teens all work together at supper time. I do ALL of the laundry, I hate for anyone to mess with my washer and dryer. Our sons take the trash out and do the yard work.
