Who would crack first?

You trade places so SO does your job and you do SO's.

Assuming you both had enough knowledge to handle the others job.

How long do you think you would last? How long would SO last?

I think the only thing i would be upset about switching places with df would be not spending the time with my kids.

I do not have the knowledge/training to do his job, but i could probably figure most of it out.


I would probably make it 3-4 days of working full time before i got tired of not seeing the kids. I think df would last 1 day as a sahd. He is great with the kids, but he doesn't realize how much i actually do around the house.

I would NOT last, bc he's a construction worker and I'm pregnant!

He could be a substitute teacher. He wouldnt do as good of a job as I do, but he'd be fine.

I don't think i could handle either of those jobs.

I think I'd do a better job as a Construction worker than a substitute teacher though.

Haha, that's a really good question! my SO is unemployed right now, and watches the kids when i'm at work. He *might* make a good housekeeper lol. But i go a little cuckoo if i don't have a job (even though i do enjoy being a SAHM). He might crack tho cause my job is pretty repetitive

Depends. If its a weekday im home w the kids so he would def die w them all day long. He can barely handle a few hrs.

If its my nightjob he would crack bc he cant handle taking.care or someone. Im an lna on the geriatric psych unit.

If its my wknd day job hed be fine, but his job is easy so id be fine w it lol

I can barely keep my house clean. I don't think I'd survive as a housekeeper. Of course if i was getting paid for it that would be a different story.

I worked weekends before i had the baby just to get out of the house one in a while.

I wouldn't want your night job.

I don't think i could handle all that you do in a week. I'm barely awake all day to take care of my kids.

I probably wouldn't last, he does construction and lifts heavy sheets of drywall and steel beams all day.

Who would crack first? I would. I don't have enough patience to deal with the people he deals with on a daily basis.

 I'm in school right now, DH would love it!
