What are some things you can't/won't do and make your SO/DH do instead?

I cannot/will not do anything with nail trimming. It makes me soooo uncomfortable. Even when they were sleeping babies, no no never ever

  • I don't take out the trash, mow the lawn, shovel, pretty much anything that has to do with the outside. But he does nothing to do with the inside, so it is even.

  • Nail trimming is a horror but he wont do it. He hates hearing the kids cry so he avoids it.

    There isnt anything with the kids that I cant/dont do and have him do.

    Around the house...I make him take the trash to the curb but when it comes to the kids I do it all.

  • handle/touch raw meat. If I am making hamburgers, I am sure to have to my husband mix in the seasoning and put them in the skillet.

  • Cleaning up animal puke. If the cat pukes or the dog pukes, he gets to clean it. I can handle all sorts of nastiness, but for some reason, cat and dog puke makes me want to puke.

  • I don't mow the lawn, clean the gutters or re-fill the propane tank for the BBQ. Besides that I will do just about everything else.

  • My husband does most of the driving when we go on long car trips. That way I can chill out with my favorite book...or take a nap!
