I found this post on Facebook. It’s written by Chaunie Brusie , a Babble contributer.
Her post No, Dear Husband and Kids, You’re Not Cleaning “for” Me highlights how I feel sometimes as a stay and work at home mom.
It often feels like cleaning is my responsibility alone and it’s everyone else’s responsibility to make a mess for me to clean. Sounds unfair, doesn’t it?
It isn’t that I mind cleaning most of the time, but some days are extremely busy and I can’t seem to keep up then I need Mr to step in and help – instead of pointing out that there is a mountain of dishes in the sink. I didn’t create all those dishes by myself, did I?
I often feel guilty asking him for help, because it is often met with a sigh or a “Can I do it later?”, but when he wants me to do something I have to do it now. So I resort to doing things when ever I get around to it.
That is why this post resonated with me. Give it a read:
Let me know what you think of the post.
Does your husband/partner help you around the house? I’d love to hear from you!
Love and Blessings,
