Does your husband help with the housework and laundry if you work full time? or even part time?

Mine will do anything except the laundry, so my first day off (I work 7 and then am off for 7) spend all day doing laundry...oh, who am I kidding. its more like 3 days of laundry!!

  • My husband helps cook dinner and with other things. I'm a SAHM, but not a maid. We respect each other and know that as a family everyone has to help, including the kids.

  • Even when I didn't work at all - full time SAHM (before I was a WAHM) he did most the housework. He's just more domestic than me! He does laundry, vacumes, dishes and the whole bit...

  • I'm a SAHM and DH still helps out, he does the yard work, cooks dinner at least 50% of the time, does his own laundry, feeds and lets the dogs out at night, takes out the trash, changes DD's diapers about half the time when he's home, goes grocery shoping with me about half the time, even helps with cleaning here and there, etc. He's AWESOME!

  • I am a SAHM and on his days off my husband helps out. He also helps out after work. His feelings have always been that we both work from x-x (his work scheduule) at our individual jobs and when he's home from work he's off the clock from hiss job and I am off the clock from mine as far as doing it all by myself goes. He cooks & I do dishes, i cook and he does dishes, he'll help me fold laundry if I do laundry at night, etc.. All of the major housework is done when he gets home but there are always little things at the end of the day that needs done.
