I have said before that I am blessed to have a husband with a well developed sense of duty and a clear understanding that housework should be shared by both parents.
I thought I would check over dinner what the children’s view of this was.
Me: What work does Daddy do around the house?
Daniel: The laundry!
Michael: The cooking!*
Herself: The cleaning up after dinner!**
Me: And what do I do?
Me: Well, for starters, the tidying up! I am always picking up things and putting them away.
Michael: But that’s more of a hobby, really.
I think my work may not yet be done here. On a related matter, I was very struck by this post and the comments; worth a look, if you are working mother.
