Re: SAHMs: How much are you repsonsible for??

Well, we homeschool so I take care of four kids all day. I do all the cooking and the majority of the cleaning. Hubby does the outside stuff like chop wood, mow, weed eat and the major garden work. I do some garden work but my spine is fused so I can't do much heavy stuff.
We do the shopping together because I don't drive. He takes care of the bills. He usually takes out the garbage but lately he hasn't so I make one of the kids do it.

He has more relaxation time when he comes home but I have more during the day when he is still at work. (like right now I'm sitting here eating ice cream while the kids are outside , he's over at the bank laying brick ) It still kind of irritates me though when he sits while I'm running around in the evenings getting everyone ready for bed.
