I cook and do some chores. He puts out the trash, and washes bottles. In terms of cleaning the house, we try to both do equal part.

I do the laundry. We all chip in and clean house. When it comes to cooking, my husband will either cook or take over when I start it. lol He LOVES to cook, so I just let him.

Its usually me for both. I do most of the cooking but DH will grill alot in the summer. He also does a nice prime rib dinner with all the fixings around Christmas every year.

As far as chores, a lot of its me. But he does all the trash, will help with laundry and usually cleans the bathroom in our room (not always) and he will help out whenever I ask him to do other things. But normally its easier if I just have him entertain babies while I get things done (when he isn't working).

I wish it was more equal. Since I am back at work I don't have time to do it. But, on the weekends I catch up. I pretty much do all of it.

Troy does most of the daily chores while I'm at work, but I do most of the deep cleaning. He cooks the majority of the time.

My husband won't clean a dang thing unless I start a fight about it. He'll do laundry if he's out of work shirts, but that's about it. This house would be a candidate for horders if it weren't for me.
I told him when I return to work we are getting a housekeeper. He thinks I'm kidding. I'm not.

I have to plan and cook most of the dinners. Sometimes DH will help cook though. I also do laundry and most of the cleaning. Sometimes when the house gets bad though we both will spend a couple of hours getting it back in order.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Hubby actually cooks most of the time, and does dishes and takes out garbage. I do the picking up, vacuuming, scrubbing, etc. We both do our own laundry.
