  • I actually had to tell my dh he was not a guest at a hotel, I was not a maid and if he wanted to be a dad/husband he needed to be part of the household - including the yucky stuff.

  • I usually explode and ask if he sees himself sitting on his ass as I run around like an idiot. LOL

  • I think you just need to tell him. I agree I have told my DH that I am not a maid and I have also said "I'm not you mom either." I would go with the honesty adn just tell him you need him to help.

    Good Luck!

  • I have pointed out in the past that if he wants his house clean and his kids happy, which will make his wife happy, he needs to pitch in.
    Rarely do I have to make a honey do list.
    I just informed him that the putting away of laundry and getting the kids to do their own laundry will now be under his jurisdiction when he is home.

  • After 7 yrs I'm still trying to figure it out even during his winter lay-off's he gets sooo pissy if I ask him to do even the smallest task and I just thank God that our son is out of diapers because he wouldn't even change those during a lay off or working
