He just doesn't really see the messes. When I made chore sheets he followed them, but I couldn't expect him to notice and take care of things that I saw and bugged me.

One other thing. This may be a lost cause, but I try to NOT instill the idea that housework is not fun and we have to get past it before doing the fun stuff. As I said, my dd finds some simple things fun (such as toilet swishing, swiffering and wiping stuff down) and I encourage this. I do not make chores a punishment and I try not to say "do this and then we can have fun". I try to keep it casual and make it fun in and of itself, hoping that maybe she will keep up the good attitude.

I also feel that I need to do something for my dh, since he works so hard for us, and I guess that translates into giving him a nice clean house, etc.
