Well am I??

DP and I bagsy who will have lie in on a Saturday morning and then it's the other one's turn on the Sunday.

I had mine yesterday. DS2 came and woke me at 9, (DP sends him up and then pretends he made his own way there )

When I came down all of the breakfast stuff is still out. DD nappy swinging low between her knees and DP lying on sofa reading his book while they happily get every toy in the house out.


Toys I can cope with but the welded on dried out weetabix on the bowls is too much surely??

I just thought I'd weigh in very helpfully here to say that my dh gets up with the children Monday to Friday, supervises dressing, makes breakfast, empties the dishwasher and makes me a cup of tea. I gradually get up while all this is happening.

He is working away at the moment. It is hell...

No I don't think you are being unreasonable to expect your DP to sort out my house when I'm having a lie in... (See thread title )

Seriously though, NO NOT UNREASONABLE ATALL! This drives me insane - dh is exactly the same. I can't stand it being left a mess so end up storming round the house in a fury afterwards tidying up, muttering furiously under my breath, causing my blood pressure to soar and then spend the rest of the day being in a strop and ignoring dh. Not the best way to deal with it all.

I LIKE colditz's advice. I'm going to try that!

Well, I took the littlest ones up to see him at 9. Threw my clothes on and left him to bring them downstairs.

Armed myself with a pile of wet washing and when he appeared downstairs I said 'i'm off to sort this out and tackle the odd sock mountain, be a love and sort the kitchen out and I'll be down in ten minutes and make us a brew'

Worked a treat! Think the fact that he was still half asleep helped. But all happened with no bad feeling and kitchen was gleaming when I got back downstairs
