1. Don’t you know it! She has never mowed the lawn, nor scooped the cat’s litter box. I
    Also do toilets. She does bathtubs, and reserves Th right to cook. Though, she does let me grill at times. 🙂

  2. I actually do almost all the cooking Tim and have been known, on occasion, to change the cat’s litter.

  3. I appreciate it when couples distinguish different tasks around the house and with the family. It’s simply too much to expect the other to help with EVERYTHING around the house.

    I know couples that have an attitude of a 50/50 split with everything, and I think it’s unhealthy. I think that I’ve seen it lead to unhealthy expectations of the other person and ultimately disappointment.

    I really appreciate everything that my wife does around the house – and I try to thank her for them, too! I love our relationship right now, as we really appreciate the others’ specialties and what we do.

  4. Hey wait a minute. Thats how its supposed to work. I have been getting the raw end of the deal. What color do you get when you mix pink and blue together because thats the color of my tasks. I mow lawn and do the cooking, I do the home repairs (poorly) and the grocery shopping, I am getting robbed. 🙂 With four very active kids my wife is the executive assistant managing all the calendars and making sure everyone is where they need to be, when they need to be. “What am I doing today?” is my daily question and the list flows like a poem.

    I still think I am getting robbed. 🙂

    Yep, this is DEFINITELY true in my house with my wife and I. And we both know it, acknowledge it, and embrace it. There’s a little crossover (I do laundry), but for the most part, we follow ‘the rules’.
