As far as housework goes, pretty much nothing. He does things when I ask him to thats about it. He used to do more, but now that I stay home I don't ask him to do anything. When he cooks for himself he usually cleans up after himself but not that well. lol. He takes Alexander any time I need to get stuff done though.

When he is home, he will change diapers, give meals, play with the kids... He also cooks for us, and he helps with the houswork if I need it - usually I don't, I keep an immaculate house, so there is never much for him to clean! LOL

As far as housework he doesn't usually go out of his way to do things without me asking. But I don't really ask much out of him as far as that goes. The way I see it, the BEST help he can be is to take the kids off my hands for a little while and I will get it done lol which he does. The first couple of weeks Em was home though he took care of almost everything while I adjusted to having yet another little one around But now things are starting to even out again, he is back to work full time....and I am still on maternity leave.

My DH will do things around the house if I ask him to. When Zoe came home he took all of her night feedings so that I could get some sleep after not having a solid nights sleep since before I got pregnant. If I get the laundry ready he will take it downstairs and get it in the machines. Usually folding it gets left up to me. I figure there are some things that are my responsibility since he works all day so that we have money to do things. When he gets home I sometimes dissapear into the office so that I can do stuff on the computer ( like being on justmommies ) We are still getting used to living together so the kinks are still being ironed out in sharing a house.

DH does ALL of the outside chores (I do pick up dog droppings daily though)...he also does his own laundry, splits all the childcare with me when he is home (diapers, baths, feedings, etc)....he does all the bills & things like that, he cleans up after himself and will vacuum occasionally as well. He will also go to the grocery store if needed. Oh, and he does at least 50% of the cooking/cleaning up after dinner.....

mine does NOTHING. Well maybe I'm being to harsh because anything kid related he will do and is good at. And he'll usually cut the grass after I've mentioned it's long 5 times.

hmm. he'll vaccum and wash dishes if i ask..well, he'd pretty much do whatever, if i ask. and nag. I would just like to be able to come home and have him surprise me with a clean house. sigh. wishful thinking.
since we moved in together in march, he has not cleaned the bathroom once! and it gets pretty nasty. He has vaccumed once, when I asked, after my appendectomy. He does wash dishes a few times a week.
thats about it.

DF cleans the kitchen because I hate doing dishes. He'll also do laundry. Really though it's about 50/50.

I kwym. I have to nag Mike to get him to do stuff. When we moved in together it took me so long to get him to understand that it is NOT ok to leave a huge mess in the kitchen when he is home and I am not. So it took me like a year but I finally got him to start cleaning up after himself at least. And he still leaves me stuff, just never usually a huge mess. He was good for awhile, but now that I stay home I think he feels like he shouldn't have to do anything.

He does more than I do! If I made a list, I'd be here all day. He does the grocery shopping, 99% of the cooking and most of the cleaning. He's a total neat freak (and I'm not!). The only 'chores' I really do are laundry and sometimes vacuuming -- both of which I don't mind doing. I hate most other chores so he does those.

my hubby does all the yard work and house maintainence. I do all the laundry and house cleaning. He does 98% of the cooking. (he gets home an hour before I do) I will cook on the weekends if he doesn't feel like it. We do the grocery shopping and bill paying together. I think we are pretty much 50/50. We work together well as a team.
