His & Hers

I gather the trash,
He takes it out.

He cooks,
I clean.

I plan date nights,
He books all our travel.

He watches our stocks, fights with our health insurance company and keeps us on budget.
I do the grocery shopping, pediatrician appointments and play dates.

I buy all the wedding, baby, birthday and Christmas presents,
He makes sure our cars are in working order, washed and full of gas.

I do the laundry,
He deals with the dry cleaning.

He records Top Gear,
I record Oprah.

He waters the lawn,
I buy fresh flowers.


I vacuum,
He dusts.

He handles all things electronic or that need assembly.
I buy Lucas' clothing, books and toys.

He gets up with Lucas at the crack of dawn so that
I can sleep in.

He works six days a week so that
I can push Lucas on swings at the park, visit monkeys at the zoo, listen to story time at the library and ride on carousels.

I am lucky.
He is lucky.

We both raise our son.

Isn't it great to have a partner in life?
Someone to share everything, not just the fun stuff.

That was really beautiful! No matter how you divide the duties of parenting, both parents are raising the kids. I love how you said you are both lucky, because that is so true!

So much give and take, and somehow it all gets done at the end of the day! And it's just about balance and love and finding ways to accomplish what's important to you two together.

This was great!

Beautiful. You are so very lucky to be able to stay home with your son...also very busy and contributes just as much as your husband does. Marriage and raising a child is teamwork ;)
