Why do some men want credit for helping around the house, once a month?lol

why is it us women, do our chores and motherly duties without qualms, and men want a pat on the back? Just curious. I dont expect to change him, but I work 12 hours a day, cook, clean, etc etc. and I am just so pooped! I do not ask for a pat! LOL!!

  • I have always thought that super-mommies are generally not appreciated like they should be. Some women make it look so easy!!!! Men just have no clue!!!!
