I'm a mother to a 14 month old boy and wife to an obsessively tidy freak husband :-) Unfortunately for me he works from home and is often really annoyed that there are toys and washing up, general untidiness, which does happen during the day when you are at home with baby.
We are finding it hard to communicate and understand each other without getting angry and upset.
It's sometimes great having DH working from home (it's our own business which I am involved from an advisory perspective) from, but other times I wish he was gone 10/12/14 hrs per day as I'm the one getting 'nagged'!
I don't think he truly understands what I do in the day and I feel that as long as it's tidy shortly after DS goes to bed, that's what really matters?
Will our DS remember play time with Mommy or spotless house 100% of the time?
Also he expects a cooked lunch and if this doesn't happen thinks I'm failing at my role!
Any suggestions for a happier, balanced compromise?
