Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • hahaha no! I’m trying to train him better as he is still used to his mum cleaning up after him. don’t worry, he will learn



  • I don’t call it helping because household chores are as much his responsibility as mine because it’s his house too, but my husband does stuff around the house- mainly cooking, and some outside jobs. We have a pretty even split regarding this stuff.



  • Not really but if I ask he will. I think its a generational thing-the way he was bought up. However it gets a bit long in the tooth when they don’t help out the way they should.



  • I am loving reading all the mom responses to this.



  • We take turns with cooking and he does whatever needs to be done when it needs to be done. I’m also very lucky



  • Mine does too, I’ve had to pry some cooking nights off him so I can have a turn too! But I know so many who struggle with this too. We try so many chores together or at the same time and make it a family event.



  • My hubby cooked dinner tonight.



  • Absolutely he does! The way I view it I’m a wife not a maid.



  • Mine does too. He’s great at popping to laundry on & hanging it out, packing/unpacking the dishwasher & tidying the kitchen, but he’s not great at floors, bathroom etc or folding laundry but I’ll take it as he’s so good with the kids, shopping and even a bit of cooking. Feel pretty lucky considering he works full-time whilst I’m part-time



  • I think it depends how you divide up the work and every household is different. For better or worse we are more traditional. I know I would rather be cooking / housework than doing an oil change on the car! Also it makes sense to use your strengths; I’m a great shopper, very efficient and actually like hunting bargains etc. hubby takes ages just finding where the milk is, hates the experience, then forgets something.. it would be like me trying to service the car – way too stressful, dangerous and non-sense really. But for some strange reason when camping he always does the washing up… I’m not complaining!!!



  • Yes mine does we really both do everything pending who has most time



  • Households need to share workloads to facilitate everyone having their own personal time.



  • Mine does what he can and would do more if I asked him or if he had the time, however he works so very hard and so many hours.



  • We share work loads and duties.



  • Mine does all the cooking for dinner and majority of cleaning, I’m definitely lucky
