When he's home, he helps as much as possible. It gives me a break and I can get other things done and they have man time.

We really aim for 50%. But it's more like 60/40, the majority contributed by him. He has to deal with the house and kids during the day on the weekends, because I usually work them.

5% for about an hour before he works and for maybe 30-40min a night.

Quoting TheDude:" Just curious how much everyone's SO pitches in when it comes to child-care. Mine helps maybe 30% of the time I would say..."

Definitely safe to say every family is different! DH works out of town but I think he does what he can when he's home on weekends. I have to admit it is sometimes difficult for me to not be resentful. Before I was a SAHM I thought it must be a piece of cake. Um...WRONG ASSUMPTION! Haha!
