What do you mean "do"? A in practically? Or in "other ways".

Thingumy Sun 14-Nov-10 23:33:09

I cook but we take it in turns.I cook because I have to,he cooks because he enjoys it.

I occasionally feel the need to empty his wash basket and stick in the washing machine.

If I'm making myself a drink I'll ask if he would like one.

I clean the generally but he'll hoover/wash floors if I moan enough.

I also suck his cock.

Thingumy Sun 14-Nov-10 23:40:53

At the moment - not much! (disclaimer - am 31 weeks pg with hyperemesis and SPD).

Normally - have his dinner cooked for him for after work, do the washing, do the shopping, clean his skiddytoilet, make him a pack up (occasionaly!)

He makes his own coffee (I hate the smell of coffee even when not pg), he does most of the washing up, he cooks on days he's not at work.

i kick him out of bed for snoring.

Joolyjoolyjoo Sun 14-Nov-10 23:49:20

Lots! I cook, shop, clean, wash, iron and look after the kids. I work 1 full day a week and 2 half days. On my full day when DH is home before me he does all the above. He is also responsible for the "outside" of the house- gutters, fences, cars etc.

Oh, and I suck his cock wink- goes without saying, really

happybubblebrain Sun 14-Nov-10 23:54:52

I don't have a partner - yippeeeeeeeee. Don't want one. Don't need one. Life is good.

CrankyTwanky Sun 14-Nov-10 23:55:40

Regular blowjobs.

I occasionaly put his socks into pairs.

I buy him DVDs with guns and men on the cover for his viewing pleasure. Only if they are on sale for £3 in Sainsbos, mind.

Reverse Cowgirl.

I just asked him what I do for him and he said "You make me happy".smile

Thingumy Sun 14-Nov-10 23:56:49

hahaha@ reverse cowgirl

CrankyTwanky Sun 14-Nov-10 23:57:59

Oh and I pay for his Sky Sports subscription.
This makes him happiest of all.

I genuinely never cook for him and I can't clean for toffee.

Thingumy Sun 14-Nov-10 23:59:39

Love your ds's hair cranky,I also have a long haired son (sadly not curly though).

IWantToBeADragon Mon 15-Nov-10 00:02:14

cranky i asked the same question to DP because you got a nice answer, i got 'i dunno' I am so very loved and apprecated

I do all the cooking and food preparation, including menu planning and shopping. He gets his own breakfast, of course, makes himself cups of tea, a sandwich for himself on the weekend, etc, but "dinners" are done by me and all the food is there in the cupboard without him having to do anything.

I do the lions share of the day to day cleaning - but not all of it. His "job" is unpacking and stacking the dishwasher, and on the weekend, he does a series of really thankless stuff in the utility room including the cat litter tray, nappy bin, bagging up of the recycling, putting out of the bins for the bin men, etc.

I will put a load of washing of "his" on for him (we have separate washing baskets) and load it into the tumble dryer, generally I'd ask him to sort/process this himself though, on the weekend (I wouldn't mind if it sat in the basket till then). He will also initiate the putting on of washing of his own if his basket is getting full. I do all mine and the childrens.

He does hedge trimming. We outsource lawns. I dont really do "outdoor" stuff. I get the car washed by the illegal immigrants helpful gentleman at the hand car wash. We fill our own car with petrol/diesel, we each have one.

Generally he doesn't do any cleaning outside of the kitchen - he "mucking out" the highchair (!), and general kitchen cleaning. There are certain things he never does because I just do, like floor washing and bathroom cleaning (though he leaves it in the state he finds it and puts the seat down) - I just tend to do them before he would think to. If he's feeling like mucking in for some reason, say we've got people coming over or something, he tends to gravitate towards hoovering. He'll happily get involved in glass cleaning etc if asked, doesn't tend to be proactive but will happily muck in with anything and is great at getting the kids motivated to "help".

More recently I've been asking him take on encouraging the children to clean the play room and help them with that (they are very young)

Flat pack is him.

He doesn't have to worry about any child stuff - I am a SAHM. If they need the doctor, I do it, I buy all their clothes, everything is organised and provided and sorted for them with nothing required of him though I communicate decisions or choices to him.

Generally, he'll come home from work at 7:30pm to a hot home cooked dinner, kids fed watered bathed and pj'ed, and a relatively tidy house.

We never argue about housework, roles, etc. He always treats me with respect and me him. Actually we never argue at all. Last time we argued was 2 weeks after my son was born and he bought the wrong bottles and I went berko a bit hormonal. Son is 3! So I guess it works!

I had it trimmed recently as he had started to look like Dog the Bounty Hunter, and I found a dead daddy-long-legs and a live maggot in it.shockenvy<boak

It's down to his shoulders now.

mamatomany Mon 15-Nov-10 00:05:48

I boss him around a lot and let him go down on me regularly, aren't I nice ?

TinselinaBumSquash Mon 15-Nov-10 00:05:50

cook, clean, shop, laundry.... Nothing that involves his cock though!

CrankyTwanky Mon 15-Nov-10 00:07:21

It's the recipe for a successful relationship, mamatomy.wink

midlandsmumof4 Mon 15-Nov-10 00:07:28

Loved him uncondtionally and kept him out of debt. As well as bringing up his 4 sons whilst working full time. Washing,cooking, cleaning. Oh and acting like a whore in the bedroom grin.

Thingumy Mon 15-Nov-10 00:13:16

I'm knackered reading tatty's list.

I started as I meant to carry on with dh.

the only thing he fails to do is to clean the fucking toilet and he always feels my wrath,each and every time..

mamatomany Mon 15-Nov-10 00:15:53

acting like a whore in the bedroom

I'm going to start doing that, asking for the cash up front and having a bored look on my face wink
