When I was married the only chore my husband insisted on doing was his own laundry. He had a certain way to wash his clothes, and take care of them. It worked for us.
Now my son is responsible for his room(making/stripping the bed, vacumming, straightening up) and I do his laundry but he has to fold and put them away.
by chillemi78January 10 at 3:42 AMI stay home and my husband works so it all pretty much falls on me. That being said, he does pitch in when I need it and makes sure I get my much needed breaks too, he just doesn't have his own specific chores he does on a regular basis. We also have a nanny come once a week for a couple hours to allow me to get things done. And every 3 months or so, he has a cleaning lady come give the house a good scrub. So, he doesn't do any of it himself, but he makes sure I don't get worn out doing it all either.

Whoever gets to it first does it. Although it seems like I'm always the one to get to the bathrooms first, lol!
We alternate the dishes. We have a dishwasher but still handwash some things.
by Rach0307January 10 at 9:13 AMWe don't really divide up chores. If the garbage needs taking out or dishes need doing, it's pretty much up for grabs, lol. DH does all of the outdoor cooking because he loves it, and I do all of the indoor cooking. I'm a SAHM, so I do all the major cleaning and laundry (although, DH often does his own uniforms). My son keeps his playroom tidy and helps me with all of my chores (he's only 3, so he thinks that being a helper is still fun), stuff like putting washed clothes in the laundry, moving things out of the way of the vacuum and holding the dustpan.

My kids clean their rooms and all of their toys. I usually do all the other cleaning in the house. My hubby will wash dishes on the weekends and help cook dinner on the weekends.

We both work out of the house, but he normally does all the cooking and I do all the cleaning pretty much, I like to clean. =0) DD does help with cleanup though.
