Share The Load

My husband works, while I stay at home. So, I do the laundry.  I alone do the laundry, and that’s the way I like it.

In general, moms do all the work while having full time jobs. I salute them because I don’t think I would be able to do all the work around the house like in the video.  I wasn’t built not to share the load. My husband on the other hand, was raised helpful, he was brought up to help around the house, along with his siblings, hence…

When I’m busy, or doing nothing at all, he helps me in the kitchen.  He washes the dishes most of the time, prepare food for us when I can’t or won’t.  I know at times he doesn’t like it, but he helps me anyway.

He helps me around the house most of the time, so I wanted to do the laundry all by myself. He can help me fold them though, but the laundry is mine.

I know it’s different for everybody, and I can only share what is mine. Yet it comes down to the family, how we were nurtured, and if it’s in our nature. Outside of that, I presume change?

    1. Lol…I haven’t considered it my thing but I agree… It is my thing. There’s just some things we do we can’t share. When I’m cleaning, nobody can help because I have it in my head what to do, and I would only redo what they’ve done. So everyone’s hands off when I”m doing things around the house. I think it’s always the kitchen where I need a load full of help just because that’s where the infinite chores are, the things we do in the kitchen day in and day out.


  1. I am so grateful that my fiance helps out. He was a single dad for many years and learned to function as the sole parent of the home. Now, we are a happy little family of three and everyone helps out 🙂
