Dp has two weeks off for the first time in 14 weeks since our dd has been born. I also have 2 dc from previous marriage.

Dp has declared we are staying in today to do housework.
He has said he wants to do the majority of it "because he does a better job"?! I clean daily, my house is clean and tidy. Yes I polish once a week, and the only place that is a mess is the older dc bedroom.
Because he's cleaned the oven door while I'm holding dd he thinks he's doing an amazing job. Iv told him I'm going to make it more realistic and leave the house without dd and let me try and do all this amazing cleaning while looking after dd 😡

I'm bloody pissed off!!

Yanbu, leave all children at home and you go off for a coffee and a cake. Stay out past lunch at least!

Definitely go out and leave him to it.

My DH insists he does a better job cleaning too.

My ex thought he did a better job cleaning and my "useless" efforts at keeping house (whilst working 40 hr p/w shifts in a physically and emotionally demanding job and doing most running around for our baby and my elder ds) was a huge cause of contention. His cleaning the kitchen was getting the washing up cloth and wiping down all the units and drying them with whatever tea towel was around. It looked clean but it never was. Would have to redo it all when he had gone to bed. Now he is an ex my house is pretty clean and tidy despite me being a rather messy person.

Oh and meant to say , yes disappear, go and get your nails done, or just sit in a coffee shop and people watch. Let him get on with it all and see how much he doesn't manage to do!
