In the big scheme of things I appreciate people will say I’m lucky.
I have a husband who cooks, shops and does his fair share of child care. We both work part-time hours. He may work 2-3 days a week out of the house and spend more time planning and invoicing at home and I work 30 hours a week. As far as I’m concerned we both own and live in our house and we both made the decision to have children so housework and childcare should be equal.
I think it is, it’s just the little things that now annoy me.
Like the failure to clean a pan first time.
The fact he claims that greasy tupperware need to keep being washed each day for 3 days to finally clean them. (no, clean it 3 times better just the once)
The emptying of the bin but the failure to put a new liner in it
The shopping left on a counter especially the toilet roll, left for days on the kitchen floor.
The breakfast bowl that isn’t swilled clean and requires a chisel and hammer 7 hours later to clean it.
The latter I’ve decided to just keep leaving until he finally does the washing up himself.
I’ve always started doing this with the bin – piling up rubbish next to it.
Might seem picky, but if I keep finishing these jobs, he’ll never learn. 😉
