Especially to the working mums with children under 10 or under 5.
Just interested to know what percentage are watching the children vs being holed up in their man-caves.

Popping out to the shop to buy some vegetables and a pudding for me while DD1 is sleeping on the sofa and DD2 is gurgling on me

Putting the clean sheets on all the beds right now.

He's still at work.

RufusTheSpartacusReindeer Fri 17-Feb-17 17:54:12

He is at work

When the children were younger he did everything when he came home

He still does a lot of chores i am both lucky and lazy

Sanding back the polyfilla in the holes on ds1's wall right now! I'm in charge of dinner, refereeing the strange rugby hybrid game the Dcs have devised and drinking wine.

Well I'm in a different time zone so it's still morning here but if your question is what will my DH be doing at 6pm my time, either eating dinner with the kids or possibly messing around in the pool with them.

If you need help with the kids go an ask for it.

He's getting dinner for the kids. I am on the sofa with the kids as I am knackered after work. He looks after the kids all day so I should really give him a break.

Friolero Fri 17-Feb-17 17:55:46

He's out for work drinks tonight. Although normally he'd be back by now as he leaves for work just after 6am so that he can get back in time to help with kids bath and bedtime.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Fri 17-Feb-17 17:55:47

Still at work. Won't be home for about another hour.

SaorAlbaGuBrath Fri 17-Feb-17 17:55:54

Late finish at work as had the morning off for school meeting and autism assessment for DS1 and DS2 respectively.

TheSconeOfStone Fri 17-Feb-17 17:55:54

He's on the sofa with the kids while I do a quick freezer dinner. Then I'm off out for the evening so he'll be in charge of bed time.

Mine has been sitting on a chair cuddling poorly DS2 (17 months) for the last hour.

FourKidsNotCrazyYet Fri 17-Feb-17 17:56:41

My husband works abroad for weeks at a time. He's currently sleeping as he is 5hours ahead. We miss him sad

SumThucker Fri 17-Feb-17 17:56:45

Finished work and has taken our eldest food shopping for the weekend, I'm here with the toddler.

whereiscaroline Fri 17-Feb-17 17:56:57

Still at work. Not expecting him home much before 8.30.

littlejeopardy Fri 17-Feb-17 17:57:22

Sat with the baby making sure she eats her tea.

I'm on the sofa reading Mumsnet on my phone.

whereiscaroline Fri 17-Feb-17 17:57:25

What's your OH doing, OP?

CesareBorgiasUnicornMask Fri 17-Feb-17 17:57:40

At the bar getting another beer (taken DS with him to 'help daddy' so I'm getting five minutes peace. We both finished a bit early today so picked DS up and went out for a drink, and now we're staying for dinner.

Katkin14 Fri 17-Feb-17 17:58:01

Watching TV with DS. He's had him all day. They've been to play group, ran errands. I'm cooking tea.

LouieLou2013 Fri 17-Feb-17 17:58:03

Working away so probably in a hotel. I'm vegging on the sofa with the little fella. I would usually be at the pub by now though!

lampfromikea Fri 17-Feb-17 17:58:47

He's just finished bathing DD and will then be cooking us a lovely steak for dinner. I've got my feet up watching pointless (I have just dashed around and tidied up DDs path of destruction though!)

CallingGloria Fri 17-Feb-17 17:59:14

Cooking dinner whilst I MN and drink wine. Cheers! wine

ClemDanfango Fri 17-Feb-17 17:59:32

Mine is still at work and I'm on Mat leave at the moment. He's not the man cave type though, very much in to being a dad and spending time arsing about with our kids.

CheckpointCharlie2 Fri 17-Feb-17 17:59:41

He's lying on the sofa next to me. He's cleaned the house from top to bottom with me earlier but when my mates come round for gin later and he's put the little one to bed he'll slink off to his man cave to play whatever monster/alien game he likes!

Since typing he's gone up to run little dds bath.
