My kids are 11, 9, and 5. They do their own thing most of the day. I am not one to clean all the time either.

 My DH has been gone 11 hours a day. The kids and I stay busy though. Lots of swimming, Six Flags, beaches, etc this summer. At the end of August I'll return to work.

My dh used to work a lot when my girls were little. I played a lot of games on the comp, once the kids were in bed.

My wife works a lot but mostly remotely from home. I have a 2 week old so days are pretty busy.

my SO leaves around 6:30 and gets.home a little after 5 pm. I keep the house clean, and take care of the kids. I make sure dinner is ready by the time he comes home.

My DH works 50-60 hours a week. I work too but, on an opposite schedule :-( .

I clean, read, watch TV, do my hobbies and research things if I'm not spending time with the kids. I am a full-time college student as well so that takes up most of my time during the school semesters.

Yes, my dh works a lot.  He is a cop and there is always court, overtime, special assignments, call-outs, etc that take up his time.  In fact, he just had his days off and he had to work through all of them due to court.  We have a 15, 13, and 11 year old.  He has been doing this job for over 16 years, so we are pretty much use to it.  I pretty much do whatever I want during the time he works or is asleep (he works graveyard, so he sleeps through the day if he doesn't have overtime).   

Edit-I forgot to add that I am a sahm.

My husband and I work opposite shifts so er can avoid daycare. He works 12 hour shifts. He works two day shifts then two night shifts then has four days off. His day shifts he always ends up late due to late calls and whatnot. He is a paramedic and is also a supervisor.

He works about 60 hours per week, but sometimes more. I have 3 kids ages 12, 6, and 7 months. My youngest keeps me pretty busy, but I also do about an hour a day of curriculum with my daughter so she keeps up, an hour or so of cleaning per day, we go out regularly (park, splash pad, children's museum, library, grocery shopping, etc.), and then I have my hobbies.....knitting and soap making mainly.
