Yes, thank god! He helps with everything from doing dishes, to doing laundry. He also changes diapers and helps out with cooking some nights. Don't know what I'd do without him. He also doesn't freak out about giving me time to go to the gym or just get our the house. My hubby works a 40 hour job and works midnights, so he doesn't have to miss out on the stuff our kids do. Love that man to death!
The three very best things I've ever done in my life are Ty William, Bryce Julius, and Preston Scott.

Well, my DH was on the ball today... He took both kids Christmas shopping so I could enjoy a little quiet time. After returning them home safely, he went to the grocery store to get a few things for dinner. He also gave the 3 year old a bath, a snack, and read him bedtime stories. He isn't always quite as helpful, but today he was wonderful :)
We went to Costco and he unpacked everything when we got home. There are to many to list - he's a keeper! We are getting ready to celebrate our 38th anniversary!

He went and got me a newspaper and some frozen veggies that I needed so I didn't have to go out shopping yet again.

DH works a ton during holiday season. I took the kids to a party by myself and they both screamed the whole way home. When I walked in the door DH had bought my fav bottle of wine and had a small glass poured for me. Perfect!

Today he: - came home and fixed me lunch
- is running two errands I had planned for this afternoon so that I do not have to go out in the cold
- took my car so that he could fill the tank.
What a guy!

Mine works long hours so I can stay home and homeschool our children, and he does home maintenance - like replacing some windows this year, building me a rack to dry laundry on, etc. The children and I do the house keeping (laundry, dishes, sweeping, etc) and ask him to help with the deep cleaning once every few months.

My husband washed all of my dishes and did a load of laundry, all by himself.

He drove the whole six hours plus drive home from where we were to HOME today. I did the packing/unpacking, most of the cooking, dealing with home "issues". But he drove and I rested during that drive. Thanks, Hon!

Wow and I thought I had it nice cuz by dh does the laundry and makes dinner for him and the kids (I just had the lapband and have to eat pureed foods so I make my own dinner still). Now I am wishing mine was more helpfu.......
My husband vacuums every other day. Since I have to be at work by 7:30, he makes sure the kiddos have breakfast, are dressed, teeth brushed, etc. and then takes them to school. He helped empty the dishwasher and clear the table when dinner is done. The biggest thing he does is play with the boys while I am making dinner (otherwise they are on me like velcro)!
