  • Being a stay at home mom I wanna say I do, but Dh has a rough job. Sometimes though I think I have rougher days... he doesn't have to deal with a back talking 10yo or a screaming 16 month old... and I mean screaming (not crying) just for fun all day long. Oh and all my chores in the middle of diapers and food.... I'd say we're equal :)

  • Both work hard. It's not who works harder its just understanding that being a full time mom is just as hard as a full time job.

  • I would say that both carry a significant weight of importance to make a home run smoothly. I have been a SAHM and my hubby worked 40 hrs a week and ran our business and he still valued my role in the home as did I to him. Now that I am back at work, nothing has changed.

  • At this point my dh is working his tail off (working 84 hours a week). When I stayed home I thought I had it bad. But being a working mom now my tune has changed. I come home after working 6-10 hours and worry about the things I'm behind on (laundry, dishes, science projects, ect.) I miss staying home. Staying home was gravy.

  • I didn't know it was a competition. I guess in my relationship, we just do what we gotta do and don't say much about it...
