Who Picks Up The Slack When You're DONE?

Posted by   + Show Post

We all know that the cooking, cleaning, and laundry doesn't do itself. So who picks up the slack when you're having a bad day and call it quits? Does the whole household come to an abrupt stop for a day or two until you're back on your feet? Does your DH/SO chip in? Do you have older kids that can takeover?

Nobody. If I don't get up and get things done it just builds until I do it. My bf will help out if I'm sick for a while, eventually lol

My husband does the cooking so I don't deal with that. 

If I spaz out and need a break, he does step up and help out. He's great with helping me.

Mama too sick to cook means husband brings home takeout.

Mama too sick to clean, the girls do more.

I was sick last year(hospitalization) and they handled things pretty well.

I don't really have anyone. My 11 year old helps out with some chores but I do most of the cleaning and cooking around here.
