  • I get lots of help around the house. I married a neat freak, he is not comfy if the house is not clean & he does not mind doing it at all. He finds it relaxing to clean up. LOVE HIM!!!!!

  • rolling on floor ahhhh I really wish they'd make a sweet pea that's laughing so hard I peed myself! Help! What help! You mean Captain Oblivious? The same man who will trip over his own shoes on the floor & complain about how they got there? He's noooooo help @ all! He was a slob before we got married, guess I should've seen it coming!

  • A lot of help! hubby does the gardening and cleaning of my first floor, and a lot of times the second floor too, he thinks he is the only one than can clean good so I lead him on!

  • Not much around the house help. But, most days, when he comes home from work, he is a great help with the kids!

  • DH is always helping out. If he feels it is getting too cluttered, he starts picking up. Now, if only I could get him to put his dirty clothes in a hamper instead of leaving them on the bathroom floor lol

  • None. He even doesn't pick up his dirty clothes... but I guess that's the price i pay for being a SAHM. I'm getting a job soon, and from my last experience working after Dd was born, he won't help much then, but he'll at least do some laundry if I ask. I'm glad we're moving and I'll be able to get a dish washer.. I really can't wait!

  • he does dishes and takes out the trash if I ask him to, but he works hard and I am a sahm so I figuter its my job to keep the place clean. The biggest thing he does to help is he will take our son to the park so I can get a break from him

  • He helps a lot. Laundry, dishes, mopping the works. We both work full time jobs and I actually work longer hours than he does so thank goodness he does.
