Come to think about it...how do we ven manage to juggle the house, kids, work on a daily basis?? We are not even paid extra for the chores we do. I can barely manage it but my hubby's help is definitely welcome!!

i only have one child who is very energetic! my boyfriend works all day and so do i! i dont know how i do it.. but i do it all.. i go to work, clean my house and take care of my daughter. he does nothing besides work. i could clean the house before i go to work and it would be destroyed when i come home for me to clean again. i even have to make supper for my daughter before i go to work so he can re heat it later for her later as i always work during supper time. im up till about 2 in the morning cleaning and back up at 7 to do everything again. i tried just sitting back for about a week not doing laundry or anything until it got too bad where i had to do it. any advise to get the men to start helping out around the house? he dont even shovel the snow or take the garbage out!

My hubby and I both work full-time and I usually put in a little more hours weekly because of the nature of my job. We are a good team and split up the house work, but I still end up exhausted!!!!! I also pump during the day for my 10 month old son and nurse him when he's with me. I'm TIRED!!!!!!! We also have a 4 year old who is ACTIVE and chooses not not to sleep in on the weekends lol. I am def. grateful for my husband's help. He's amazing.

Samantha dear, what did you mean the house was totaled?? Was it totaled TOTALED? You can find laundry in the living room and the bedroom, with dishes piling on both sides of the sinks?? kind of totaled?

Sing Song, you've got only 1 and still have to juggle everything else there is. I have to thank my husband coz he does help out. But he says don't take it for granted. Which brings me to my next point: It is a plus when husband helps out but WOMEN are bound till death to do everything?

I think of myself as a super woman as well but sometimes its hard to ask for help my
soon to be hubby and I live together and it feels like I take on everything while he does
nothing I work more hours them him come home play with my daughter make dinner start cleaning to bath and bed for her. finish cleaning go to bed and start all over again by 5am. so heres what I did. I went on strike! I would feed my daughter and I. I would clean up after I cooked but that was is it I stopped doing the laundry unless I needed clothes (kids always have too many clothes so she was good lol) and before you knew by the end of the week the house was totaled. it was hard for me to sit back but it worked now I get alot more help :) so yes we are all super moms but we shouldnt have to do it all

i am amazed and embarrassed. i only have one but have a very stressful job, a husband who works all the time, does nothing in the house. i handle everything including finances, bills, home repairs, groceries, cars, school.....EVERYTHING! he barely knows what goes on in the house. i find this totally unacceptable and annoying but do it for the sake of my son and the sanity of the household. why is it that women always have to juggle far more than men? is it OK/right for us to just accept it and do it and then pat ourselves on the back for being super women? don't get me wrong - i do think we are beyond super and that men couldn't do half of what we do even if they tried, but it just makes me really mad that women are just expected to do everything and we somehow find ways to do it at a huge cost to ourselves.

You've got 3?? I only have 2 energetic little boys and i can barely handle them. I sleep about the same time as you but i also have to do assignments apart from doing some of the chores. Having 4 hours of sleep is taking its toll on me. Do you have time to relax? What do you do to relax?

I know what you mean... I have three kids and a full-time job... My husband works about 10-12 hours a day... So when he comes home he's not much help... I wait until the kids are in bed to do my chores so I'm usually up until 1 or 2 in the morning... And then I wake up at 5:30 to get my oldest up for school and get my other daughter up at 7:00... We are all Super Women... :)
