Yeah, if your kids weren't so young, I'd leave for the day and see how clean the house was when I came back. Of course, that doesn't make for happy kids which is the number one priority. Ds was so high needs that I thought I was doing well if I did one thing a day in addition to taking care of him. That one thing may have been taking a shower or making dinner.

You know what I did? DH used to go through more jobs then underwear (his own fault, not the job market at the time) and during my last pregnancy, I was freaking out we'd have no money for diapers, etc, so I bet him I could get a job in a day. And I did. He stayed home with the kids for 2 weeks while I worked, then a great job offer came up for him and I quit, (I had never planned on continuing to work) during those 2 weeks, I still had to come home and clean and cook because he sat and played on the computer all day. So he has no say as to how I keep the house. I do keep a clean house but there are times the kitchen doesn't get cleaned up for a day or 2 cause I'm feeling so rotten and he knows if he says a word, I'll tell him if he can do it better, he can stay home and I'll work :
