Who does what in your household?

Cooking? barbecuing

Cleaning? washing dishes

Laundry? doing laundry

For those who have older kids, do they help?

Cooking - me or DH although now that I am not working it is supposed to be me but occasionaly depending on the meal it is sometimes DH

Cleaning - mostly me, I asked DH to do kitchen after I had my first son but I feel like I am doing all of it now anyway.

Laundry - mostly me, Although my oldest son (2y/o) likes to help me - I take out one article of clothing at a time and hand it to him and he puts it in the dryer. It takes longer but he likes to help me.

Cooking - Evenly split, but hubby has been working late the past few weeks so I've been doing more cooking than I like :P
Cleaning - Split. He washes the dishes, litter box, and does a lot of the dirty work with the dog. I do most of the general cleaning.
Laundry - Me. I promised I would once we moved into a house, because he did it all for two years when we lived in our apartment!

He also does the outside work (shoveling, lawn mowing), but like laundry I have promised to do most of it once we're in a new house. I feel too on display and self conscious here on a super busy street, backyard open to a busy alley, people everywhere...

cooking,cleaning, laundry all me... Dh only does it when he has too. He said he would cook if he got off ealier. We are all pretty hungary by the time he gets home at 6 so I make dinner and its ready when he gets home. Dh takes care paying all the bills and does the grocery shopping.

I do everything. Cook, clean, laundry, feed kids, get them a bath, put them to bed at night, and pretty soon I will be doing yard work.

Hubby always cooks, I clean and do laundry. He changes the baby when he is home and I always do the feedings (breastfed). He takes out garbage, changes litter box. Also does all the manly type work in the house.

I am a SAHM so I do the cooking, cleaning, and laundry.  I am about 3 weeks post partum after a c-section though so my DH has been helping out a lot!
