Hi ladies,

Who mostly does the house cleaning in your home? Do your SO and kids help?

Do your kids have specific chores?

My kids and husband help, but it's primarily my responsibility to make sure it happens.

I do the housework. I'm a SAHM and my son is in school (well he's on summer break now) so I see no reason why I would need for my husband to come home and clean when I'm here all day. My son is responsible for keeping his room cleaned up and feeding and taking care of his guinea pig. My husband takes care of the yard work and the vehicle maintenance.

Mostly I do it all. But hubby helps out on weekends when he is off work.. my kids help out with their mess in the living room. They also like to help pick up laundry and put it in the washer of dryer for me, with my help of course.

 I do most of the house cleaning, my kids & hubby do things as needed. My kids know how to run the dishwasher, washer & dryer, sweep & mop, they put their own clothes away and make their beds every morning.

It's mostly me. DH loads the dishwasher at night but I come in after he leaves the kitchen and clean the stove top, sink, and countertop. Those just aren't on his cleaning radar and it's just easier to step in when he is done instead of nagging him every night.

DS has a few chores. He set the table and wipes the table down after we eat. He also helps me clean stalls and feed the horses each night.

My dh and I do it together. He is off 4 days a week. The kids do have their things that they help with as well.

I do most of it but my kids help out a lot. 

The kids are responsible for their own laundry, their bedrooms and their bathroom, except the 7 yr old.

The older two do all the lawn work and taking out the trash.

I do all the vaccuming, sweeping, mopping, dusting, organizing, washing all the linens, other bedrooms, bathrooms, dishes and pet care.
