Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? Yes, he washes the dishes every night. He only ever cooked when i was pregnant and very sick. He got fed up of takeaway very quickly! but he is a terrible cook, so we have a deal with me cooking every night and he washes up!
Does he change diapers? Yes, he gets harry dressed and into his pjs every day, so changes him then, and whenever else he is needed!
Does he do bedtime routines? Yes, he puts jake to bed every night and takes over with harry sometimes when its taking too long!
Does he do night wakings? Most nights. Harry usually only wakes for a few seconds looking for his soother or to be made comfortable. Dh can do that and go right back to sleep. If i get up for a few minutes I am awake for hours.
Does he do laundry? No. He cant figure out the washing machine!
Does he do yardwork? Not really, he cuts the grass and keeps the place tidy, but we dont have any flowers or anything!

Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? He does cook when he has a day off, but doesn't clean up afterwards.

Does he change diapers? Only if I made him or was gone.

Does he do bedtime routines? On his days off he does what he can. The kids like it better when I do it though.

Does he do night wakings? My kids don't wake up at night anymore unless it is a rare bad dream. He use to help when they were smaller.

Does he do laundry? LoL, no! I have mass OCD about folding laundry the "right" way.. LoL.

Does he do yardwork? Not really, he does help when I ask for a little help

Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? You wouldn't want him to cook. He does okay with frozen pizza but that's about it. He will grill, but our grill is broken right now. He does help with prep for parties or holiday dinners. We even catered our own wedding for around 100 people.

Does he change diapers? Never has, never will. I think he'd rather be robbed at gunpoint.

Does he do bedtime routines? Sometimes, usually if I am sick or not home at that time.

Does he do night wakings? We never really had this issue. (Other then while a newborn.) If he was still awake he would. If he was sleeping, he would never hear her bc he is a very heavy sleeper.

Does he do laundry? I've never asked him to. When we lived in places that warranted going to a laundromat, he did help.

Does he do yardwork? Yes. I mow grass about as well as he cooks.

Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? I mostly cook, since I'm the SAHM and he's not home until dinner time. But, he will cook on weekends if I want/need a break! He likes to cook.
Does he change diapers? Alexis has been out of diapers for a few years lol, but yes.. he absolutely did.
Does he do bedtime routines? Yep, we do it together!
Does he do night wakings? DD is 6, but when she was a baby.. yep! He mostly did them, because he came home at 1am from work.. so he just stayed up a bit and took care of nights.
Does he do laundry? Yes, actually- I never do his. He washes his own.
Does he do yardwork? yep!

It appears I have a pretty helpful husband

We dont have a yard so no on that one! LOL

The only thing he really does is discipline the kids if they get on his nerves with their antics and will occasionally go grab something from the store.

He doesnt change diapers(never has unless I was gone and only then if stinky), he doesnt do laundry, he doesnt do dishes, he doesnt vacuum or any cleaning.

He used to occasionally help do dishes or put clothes away after they were cleaned and folded but not for a long time.

Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? Yes and yes. DH loves to cook. I get to cook like maybe once a week. He wants to cook all.the.time. Yeah I like it but I love to cook too. He always cleans up after dinner as well.
Does he change diapers? Yes
Does he do bedtime routines? We dont really have a bed time routine. We allow Drake to go to sleep when he is ready but when we can tell he is ready we all lay in bed and cuddle and watch cartoons until he falls asleep.
Does he do night wakings? He makes the bottle but I do the feeding.
Does he do laundry? Yes, but I have to tell him too lol
Does he do yardwork? He does.

Does he help tidy up from supper, or ever cook it? yes to both if he is home. This time of year he isn't usually home for it on the weekdays.

Does he change diapers? yes, about half the time when he is home

Does he do bedtime routines? yes, about half the time when he is home.

Does he do night wakings? Whenever he wasn't working (weekends or time off) he would take half of the night wakings. On work nights I would do it.

Does he do laundry? occasionally he does a load of his own laundry if he needs it done and I haven't gotten to it yet. I asked that he not do our laundry because he doesn't separate anything or do any stain prevention so that can cause the laundry to not come out looking so good.

Does he do yard work? yes. that is the one job he does that I generally don't do.
