Playing House

Isn't it funny how when you and your 
significant other live together the roles you slip into.
Sometimes without even noticing.
For example I have maybe taken out the trash twice 
since we have been married.
It is just something Ben does...
Yet I always sweep the floor. always.

He takes out the trash and kills the bugs
I sweep and mop the floors.

He vacuums and fixes stuff
I clean the toilet and dust.

He cuts the chicken and grates the cheese
I cook the rest.

He cleans the car and changes the tires.
I buy the air fresheners that make the car smell good.

He folds the laundry
I sort the laundry 
(Colors and darks are different contrary to his opinion)

I always gets into bed first.
He turns off the lights, locks the door and plugs in our phones....without fail.
That one's my favorite.

We both
check the mail, do the dishes, pay the bills and make the bed.

What roles do you guys fall into when playing house?
Is there something he always does? Or you always do?
What do you take turns doing?

We share most tasks, except I don't do dishes/clean the kitchen. It is neat how various roles just falll into place and become habit!

I adore that picture! I just found your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed stalking you and getting to know you better.

My husband tucks in our boys almost every night. I hear him praying with them over the monitor and it makes my heart melt. I too avoid taking out the trash, last time I did I stepped in dog crap and have vowed never to attempt the task again!

Feel free to come stalk me. I would be downright flattered.

I love that he plugs in your phone! Need to train my hubby to do that : ) It makes me happy that my hubby checks the windows and doors to be sure they're locked before we go to bed. I prefer that he takes out the trash, but we both do it. I only work part time, so I do laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking, but he is always willing to help and he is so much happier about cleaning than I am : )

I love this post. I make the bed, he picks up stuff from the floor. I clean the bathtub, he cleans the sink. I make dinner, he does the dishes (or vice versa), we both buy groceries and do laundry and switch sides of the bed regularly ;)

i don't take out the trash. mostly because we pile so much jank in there it gets too heavy for me to lift. but i always, always, always end up doing the dishes. i dust. garrett pays bills. garrett does the laundry. i fold it.

love that he plugs in your phone. that is darling. <3
