Well you already know my guy is OCD....but really I do most things....all the cooking/cleaning/laundry/diaper changes everything....He straightens up every now and then if he is irritated and will load/unload the washer sometimes...lately he leaves hair around the sink....and he takes off and leaves his work clothes in the most random ass places...like why undress in the dining room hallway? So I have to go on a treasure hunt for them....that and socks....god I find SO many socks tucked away under things...I think Noah finds them laying around and hides them (eww)...Then he will yell at me about how he never has any socks/work clothes.....*sigh*

He cleans up after himself. I am not home to take car of him, I am home to take care of our kids. I am not the cook, the maid, etc. I do more of that stuff than he does, but I don't & won't do all of it & I won't take care of him like that. He is a grown ass man who is perfectly capable of figuring out where the waste basket, dishwasher & washing machine are located. ;)



I have to laugh - so many men complain their wives aren't into sex anymore. I always wonder how many of those men treat their wife like she's their mom & expect her to cater to him that way. I can promise you - if you feel like his mom, eventually you will see it impact your attraction to him as well. So many women seem to think something is wrong with them when they don't want to have sex, I think a good chunk of it is that they don't want to get it on with someone who feel more like a son than a partner.

I must be one of the odd ones out then. I have no problem cleaning up his messes and I'm very much attracted to him an want sex on a daily basis.

Then you don't see him as acting like a child I would presume.



And I don't have any problem either - he already does it. I don't have to say a thing. Then again, we both worked & were childless for ages, so we already established this crap eons ago & when we decided I would stay home, we both knew that stuff wasn't going to change.

It really depends, but he tries to help, for the most part & that's all I really want. I hate when he goes through little stages of just not even bothering to do anything though & I let him know.

:!: We for sure have had these issues.



I don't mind taking on the most of it, because I'm here a lot more but I am definitely not the maid and he knows that he has equal responsibility to help out more where necessary.

Yes he does. I can't put up with someone who doesn't. He didn't at the beginning and I was about to leave him because of it.

I think "active & gutsy" is the perfect way to describe that age. LOL
