One thing that I think my family has set in their mind is that I'm not only Mom but the maid as well. It never fails. When dishes need done, they rely on me to do them. When clothes need put away... guess what... that's up to me. When toys need picked up... yep you guessed it... that's up to me.
I've tried the Chore list thing several times but they looked at me like I was playing a joke. As I sit here today and think about every thing I plan on doing while my daughter is in school, it occurred to me that darling hubby doesn't have the same plans.
His plans are the normal as any other day when he doesn't work. Sitting in his chair, with his laptop, playing video games, and talking to people on Skype. Now don't get me wrong. I love doing stuff for my family. But when it comes down to picking up tools from the repair of the shelf or toys that made their way to the livingroom.... it becomes quite annoying.
Do you deal with this? If you do and found a way to get the family to do their part, what was it?
