Exactly same situation here. My husband works and I'm the one home all day with the kids so it's only fair that I get majority of the housework done.
In saying that though, on his days off he does help out around the house.
Plus the fact that I would rather he enjoy time with the kids when he gets home from work rather than doing the cleaning.
my oh cooks once a week (always spaghetti!). he also comes grocery shopping with me. he helps around the house when i ask him to (which does annoy me, because i dont want to have to ask - i just want him to do it!). I do enjoy my housework, tbh. I love the feeling at the end, when its all clean.
hubby will be finding himself doing a lot more cooking etc if i dont get this bloody cast off tomorrow
My hubby doesn't cook...I do. He comes grocery shopping with me when I need it.
He works a full-time job and takes care of the yard, lawn and pool here, so I think it is only fair I take care of the shopping and cooking. I also look after the dogs, since he is not here.
Hubby works 7 days a week (own farm) but that leaves flexibility for trips to town, appointments etc. Best thing I ever did was go to the states for 5 weeks, not leaving cooked and frozen meals for him in the freezer as I usually did. He learned that a couple of cans of food mixed together got old really fast and learned to cook by phone, lol.
I am grateful for that too as he has no qualms about cooking a basic meal. He has at times had to take over some of the house stuff and does that without a grumble. My feeling too is that he works all the week, no set days off and his job is outside, mine inside. I am lucky that I could chose to be a stay home mum or work if I wanted to.
