I just wanted to put his out there. I work 3 nights a week starting at 330 and get home and around 1 am. Otherwise I am home with kids. and do all the housework and cooking, and minding of the children. On weekends my hubby is usually between the house and garage, so he spends some time with the kids but still no help with house work. and I don't really expect much. He works hard 5 days a week. but my beef is that I think he should at least be able to clean up after himself. On the nights that I work. I usually have a dinner prepared in the oven for him and the kids, the only thing I ask is that he leave me with a clean kitchen. This seems to be an impossible task for him.
Are my standards too high? would you expect the same, or would you be ok with having to do the supper dishes in the morning? I have tried everything to get him to respect the "clean up after yourself theory" Usually if I get pissed at him, he'll clean up for a night or two, but eventually it always goes back to the same. any suggestions on how to get him to clean up after himself all the time?
