DD is teething at the moment and not her usual chirpy self. Not too bad just clingy and whiney. I spent all afternoon trying to find her something she would do for more than five mins, while trying to bake a cake for FIL birthday, and cook dinner. The cake is a disaster completely sunk in the middle.
DH comes home and says 'one thing I won't miss while you are both away next week, is her toys and books all over the house'. (Me and DD are going to stay with my parents for a week on Sunday). He didn't mean it in a getting at me way, but it really upset me. Made me feel like I don't do anything all day.

Tell him that in about 15 years time he will sit and yearn for the days of toys and books all over the house as he sits worrying over the latest boyfriend, the GCSE mocks, what time she has to be home etc etc
He needs to enjoy the small years while he can because there will come a time when he looks at the spotless house and wonders where the bloody years went.

I don't get the connection with mentioning toys lying around equalling you don't do anything all day.
Toys are constantly lying around here too - which is irritating - but dh and I both know it's not because we sit around doing nothing. If your dh knows that too, then he clearly wasn't meaning it in the way you interpreted it
