Dh has just said he's sick of living like a slob and he can't stand it any more because our bedroom has clothes and an towel on the floor. The rest of our house is littered with usual kids toys (4 and 1) but these are tidied away every evening.

I might add most mornings once he has watched the children to allow me to dress myself and make coffee in peace he goes back to bed for 2-3 hours (this morning 4) as he doesn't sleep well. I do most of my cleaning in morning as that's when I'm most productive. 1 year old sleeps in our room so can't clean it during naps or at night. And the rest of the day I'm doing life - raising children.

Aibu to take on board his noting of our slob like bedroom and choose to clean it at 6am?

What a Twat

Myusernameismyusername Sat 28-May-16 19:34:29

It might annoy your neighbours. I would do it about 10am on a Sunday. Not too unreasonable. Unless you have no neighbours

Why can't he pick up the mess if it annoys him?
He sounds annoying

Absolutely! ! And under the bed really needs doing

Yanbu to do this to your husband but yabu to do it to your neighbours. Your husband sounds like a prize twat hmm

Doesn't he work?

pigsDOfly Sat 28-May-16 19:36:04

Do it. Earlier if you're up in time.

Or maybe suggest if it bothers him so much he gets up himself and hoovers it.

I was wondering if your NDN were playing music till 4am <<glares at my NDN>> which merits noisy hoovering at 6am , especially leaving it running against the skirting board................

Not, not unreasonable at all.

Also, you might point out to him that there are 2 capable adults in your relationship, so if he feels that he's living like a slob, then most likely it's because he IS a slob.

We live detached neighbours wouldn't be able to hear anything luckily

How does he go back to bed for 2 or 3 hours every morning? Is he unemployed?
I'd be very hmm at someone claiming they can't sleep at night; but apparently having no problem sleeping the next morning...

Moomoomango Sat 28-May-16 19:47:27

Yes he's unemployed and I also work from home - via company laptop part time (usually when kids in bed)

coco1810 Sat 28-May-16 19:48:20

He probably can't sleep at night because he goes back to bed in the morning for four hours. Yes, hoover at 6am and open the windows too!

Moomoomango Sat 28-May-16 19:49:03

Haha loving open all windows too... Might start making the bed while I'm at it

Myusernameismyusername Sat 28-May-16 19:49:42

I would probably leave the Hoover on top of him in the bed, while its running

DuvetDayEveryday Sat 28-May-16 19:50:37

If he doesn't work and you do, why on earth are you doing all the cleaning?

MrsJayy Sat 28-May-16 19:56:07

Cant he lift his own shit is his hand broken he sounds a lazy arse and you sound childish

LittleBearPad Sat 28-May-16 19:58:17

I was going to ywbvu. But do it. He won't sleep well if he lolls in bed all morning.

TwirlsInTwirlsOutAgain Sat 28-May-16 20:11:47

Not fair on your neigbours if you're attached by walls in any way, but if you're in a detached house, definitely do it!
If my DH said that, I'd say something along the lines of "yep, you're right. Get the hoover out then, I presume you know what one looks like?!"

BonerSibary Sat 28-May-16 20:12:13

If you've got no neighbours, do it.

newmumwithquestions Sat 28-May-16 20:15:01

This.

Griphook Sat 28-May-16 20:16:25

Why doesn't he sleep well? He could get up with the children and then go back to sleep in the afternoon, allowing you time to sleep and him time to clean

BreakfastAtSquiffanys Sat 28-May-16 20:18:03

Who do the clothes and towel belong to?

And why isn't he doing some cleaning (unless job hunting takes up 60 hours per week)

I don't sleep well either. doesn't mean I go back to bed to snooze at 10 am

ZippyNeedsFeeding Sat 28-May-16 20:18:37

This is how the conversation would go in my house;
MrZippy: The house is a tip and the bedroom is a midden.
Me: Yes, you aren't doing very well are you? Do you need me to explain anything to you? We'll talk about it after I finish WORK for the day.

My husband id due to retire in 6 months so I will be the only one working (apart from his basic farming stuff). we already have a system worked out. I work from home too and having a manchild on top of that is too much. (MrZ isn't one, but he would have been if I'd allowed it!).
