I have been a SAHM since the end of 2008 when I was pregnant with my second son. It was an adjustment to say the least, but I feel like I've learned a lot about time managment...lol However, my husband says I should have things "done, done". No dishes in the sink, no clothes in the dryer, no dog hair on the floor kind of done. Yet, he comes home to a warm meal, happy kids, and a reasonably picked up house. I'll be the first to admit that my house isn't spotless. But, I do a lot of other things besides general cleaning. For instance I do all the financial planning and bill paying. I fix things around the house. I just packed up almost a whole house by myself and moved two states away without much help while my husbands job was relocated. I'm just curious what kinds of things should I expect from my husband? We rent now so there isn't much to be done in way of yard work. (Except clean up the dog poo, which he rarely does.) After the shopping, cleaning, paying bills, what's left for him to do besides work? I can't even get him to put his dirty clothes in the hamper! Can we say double standard?
