What is the "division of labor"  in your household?

What are your daily regular tasks and what are your partner's daily regular tasks? (regarding chores, children, errands, etc)

(another post got me curious about this)

There is no division of labor, if it needs to be done it gets done by whoever knows it needs to be done. Sometimes it's me sometimes it's him....sometimes it's one of the kids doing whatever.

When I worked, we split the chores 50/50. Now that I'm a SAHM, I do almost everything. The only thing he does is mow and edge the lawn, and take out the trash.

Same here.  If the dishes need to be done, dh will pitch in just like I have taken the trash to the road.  We don't have set chores.  We help out each other.

 well since the girls aren't his, I handle them.  As far as chores, I do most of them as long as he cleans the bedroom (because he workds back there so most of the mess is his) and takes out the trash.  As far as errands, unless it doctor appointments or visitation for my girls, we do them together.  Our household is pretty close to 50/50.
