Lightbulb Dishes for Diapers

I am a SAHM. I am also a neat freak. I have come to realize those two things do NOT go hand-in-hand. I bust my butt all day. I make sure being with DD is my #1 and during her naps I make sure I get dishes, laundry, cleaning, diapers, dog played with, all of it----DONE. I don't really have a lot of ME time.
So today DH had the day off. I love when he has the day off because I get to be on the computer for a while during the day, or read a book, or talk on the phone without any interruption. Of course DD didn't get naps on time because she was having "Daddy Time" according to DH, but that is besides the point.
After an exhausting day we were putting new sheets on the bed tonight and we got to talking about how I purchased 2 new BGOS today. He said I didn't "NEED" them. I told him I wanted to try them to see if I like them or my FBs better---BUT I put myself on "the wagon" so I'm trying to be good...
COnversation turned to the fact he created an obscene amount of dishes today that are still in the sink (we don't have a dishwasher... wait, we do, it's ME).
Me: Now I'm going to have to do all those dishes in the morning because you left them all in the sink!
DH (laughing): Well, if I wasn't at work all day tomorrow I would do them.
Me: So I don't work huh?
DH: No, you just buy diapers all day.
Me (laughing): I'm on the wagon!! But since you bring it up, I should get paid ito do the dishes! I should be making $10/hour for doing YOUR chores. I know! $10/day for being your housewife. That's it, I want $300 a month for doing your dishes!
DH: No way! I can't afford to pay you! How about the diapers?!
Me: *gasp* Do the dishes for diapers?!

Well Mama's what do you think? Should we get paid in diapers? I told him it's a good thing I haven't discovered wool yet. He just wouldn't understand...

I guess if that's how we want to get paid! lol It would work for me, I guess because that's what I spend my money on anyway. Were you thinking it was a good idea or a bad one?

I hope he really doesn't think you are on DS all day! It sounds like you only do it when he is there!

I think it's a good idea. He can pay me in PP.
I'm only on DS at night usually. I stay up late to make sure his uniforms get finished in time for him in the morning (he's a corr. officer)
