  • He helps when he can, but he works a lot. The last time I was sick he had no option but to go to work (so he says), and I pretty much had to deal with it and take care of my son by myself anyways. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to physically do. :)

  • Zero help. He is good about staying up nights with me when the kids are sick, but for me...nothing.

  • No help if he's working,its all on me.If I needed to go to ER or something he would come home.If he's at home he will do whatever I need of him though.

  • Yes, always. He gets of at a decent time, 5pm and always helps if I ask for it, sometimes without asking.

  • My dh has taken 3 days off when i was sick with a horrible flu that prevented me to do anything.He took care of the house and the kids, who was sick also sick. He also took off last week to sit in the er with me for 8 hours. He is very helpful when i need it, and i am so grateful to have him.

  • Yes.. usually.. except this last time when ds got sick.. and I told him to help. This was at 3 am.. dh let me down then and I rubbed it in for a few days.. maybe next time he'll be on the ball.. but who knows. Just call me and you Supermom! Although sometimes I feel like turning in the cape to go lie on a tropical beach somewhere like Jamaica, mon. :)

  • Yes, but your hubby may feel he needs the money and doesn't dare take time off work. Jobs are hard to come by now.

  • I consider myself very fortunate because sick, or well my "so" helps with eveything on daily basis! He cooks dinner every night, mops when necessary, does dishes....he does it ALL! I don't mind housework, but since I use a walker, he says it's easier for him to do the heavier house chores! I can't stand up very long anymore for about a year and a half!

  • Yes. I was sick this past weekend and my husband got up with all 5 of our kids while I slept, on and off for most of the day. He fed them breakfast, lunch and he took them out for supper. The house was a little messy, but with all 5 kids home it gets that way! :) He has also taken a couple days off work at various times when I didn't feel good, or at least made sure my mom or his mom could keep the kids at least for a large part of the day and will always take the kids out to eat so I can rest if I need it.
