My most favorite is cleaning the kitchen. Call me crazy! I love to cook and I love for my cooking area to be clean so I do not mind at all cleaning it!

My least favorite? I would have to say the bathroom, and that is because I have so much stuff on the counter and it takes forever to move it all and put it back.

I hate putting away the clean dishes. I know its a bit of a strange one, but i would honestly do everything i could to avoid putting them away!

I love sorting the clean laundry. I love the smell of the fabric softner, especially if they had been drying outside.

I hate cleaning bathrooms. I do all 3 in one day just to avoid having a bathroom to clean all of the time.

I love folding laundry. It's a little bit of time where I can gather some thoughts....me time, lol.

My favourite is mopping (steam mop makes it SO much easier yay!) or folding clean laundry.

Least favourite is ironing and cleaning bathrooms, ugh! I use an anti-bacterial wipe on my bathroom surfaces most days to eliminate the need for a heavy clean for a while. Definitely helps!

I hate chores...lol But if I have to choose, I like to clean the living room because I love to sit down to relax in a nice tidy area. I hate doing laundry and putting it away, I also hate unloading the dishwasher.

For me I love doing laundry, I dont like the ironing itself but I love the satifaction of getting the creases out and making it perfect, like cleaning the kitchen, bathroom and love making the beds. I also like vaccuming ( not actual pushing it ) but I like seeing the lines in the carpet. we dont have alot of carpet so its cool to see it.

I hate folding clothes, mopping/waxing the floors( hurts my back alot) I hate when Dh isnt home and I have to push the wheelie bins to the curb for garbage collection...sorry I could keep going on but Ill stop here.

BTW --these fave/hate are subject to change daily according to mood!!

I like to do laundry (the wash, dry and fold part, hate the putting away part but I no longer do it since I send it all away) and i enjoy cleaning the windows as well.

I hate cleaning the bathroom, especially the bathtub/shower.

I also love vacuuming and I HATE putting away clean dishes to LOL I dont know why either but I will avoid that like no other until I absolutely have to put them away and I also cant stand to mop and sweeping im not a huge fan of either. I wish we had a maid!

Favourite is the bathroom (I know, I know, but it's so fast and simple and gives the biggest bang for your buck, you know?)

My least favourite is definitely folding and putting away laundry. I will let that stuff sit in the basket for DAYS.

My oldest son will be 3 in a couple weeks. He has gone pee a few times on the potty but always poops in his underwear. I have little patience for potty training. and of course the little guy is still in diapers too.

I actually like folding laundry, so that's my favourite. Dishes are my least favourite though, pretty sad since we have a dishwasher

OMG dont even get me started on PT. My ds (just turned three) LOVES and I mean loves to pee in the toilet but pooping is a whole other story. He was doing good but the last week has straight up refused. I HATE IT!!! He is also pretty tall for a three year old so I feel like I am wiping a five year olds butt, lol. My dh and I try to always make the other one do it haha. I told him to change DS diaper the other day when I knew he was pooping because I saw him "hiding out" under the dining room table (he wont poop in front of you he runs off and hides because he knows he is supposed to in the toilet) anyways DH always asks me did he poop..the other day I totally lied hehe I knew he was.

I enjoy cleaning (now)...something about just knowing that my house is becoming sterilized and tidy makes me feel good. It's rewarding. I REALLY enjoy laundry.

I think I least enjoy tidying up after the cat (cleaning out the litter box and cleaning up behind her messy eating). She just seems to spread both her toilet business and her food all over the place. I think I hate it more because I never wanted an indoor animal....guess I can thank DH and kids for this misery.

My favorite chore is doing the laundry.

My least favorite chore is vacuuming and organizing.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could trade chores?
