Got an Answer?
I don't count the hours. I just do what needs to be done...... mostly 😉
I am a stay at home mum, I start proper cleaning when I wake up at 6:30/7 while also getting my eldest ready for school, I do a quick school drop off at 8:30 and the house is clean by 9:30 am then we go out and do things and I walk through and tidy and clean again after lunch time when the youngest baby naps if I need to, then I tidy after dinner bath and bed, my husband will always offer to help in the evening and just proactively does it if I'm unwell or too busy.
I have 3 kids, 2 at home, one in school and our house stays pretty clean.
I do all of the inside cleaning myself and I don't mind because I treat it like my job, my husband can't clean because he's at work and to be honest it's a tonne easier than when I was working.
I am a sahm and do most of the house work. If my husband is home it's 50/50 if something needs doing. This is because I feel it's so important for the kids to see that dad works around the house too. I don't want my boys to grow up expecting their partners doing everything, but mostly because I want my daughter to run if she dates a man child that expects her to do everything.
I do around 80-90% of it.
My kids ages 2-8yrs do around 10% of it.
And my husband helps with the rest. Hubby works long hours most days, so if he's out of the house all day, he pretty much does none of the cleaning. But if he's home all day he might help cook dinner or stack the dishwasher. But mainly he will keep the kids amused so I can get the cleaning done.
Right now my priority is getting the kids to pick up more cleaning, which can be more painful than doing it myself lol. But I'll be going back to work in the next couple of years and don't want to be working full time, and still doing all the house work.
Me personally? I’d do most all...
that’s my “work”
When he gets home he plays with the kids and baths them ect as he hasn’t seen them all day.
I think it’s a personal thing and dependant on so many things.
For example my husband very much does the “manly thing” (repairs, mowing , car stuff, weeding, bins) so iv no problem taking on 97% of the house (I do it better anyways lol)
I can do most of his work but I don’t like those jobs.
He can do the housework but doesn’t enjoy it.
If I go out all Sunday with the kids though I almost always come home to a clean house
That’s why the quotations babe. For lack of a better term.
I do like half hr a day. I'm not a good housewife
9-5 (or whatever) are works hours anything beyond that is overtime and should be split 50/50
