after all the grumbling yest morning, hubby responded so sweetly in the evening when he picked me up from work.
"i'll wash the toilet tonight, ok?"
the 6 most beautiful words an exhausted wife longs to hear. i was deliriously happy. but i was thinking during the day, when i was reflecting about how much he does @home, that i realised that hubby likes to do things together. the times that he'd helped out, was mostly when i was doing the chores too. like 2 weeks ago, when i was hanging out laundry before going to work, he happily came and chipped in. or 2 nights ago, when i was folding laundry after the dinner, he merrily came around, and helped me fold. although he did get a little bit grumpy when i told him he was doing it all wrong, and proceeded to instruct him on my '5-steps to a perfectly folded t-shirt' process. (note to self: stop being so anal about everything!)
so i replied, "thank you hun, but let's do it together ok?"
it was a romantic evening spent. my hubby and i, cleaning the toilet together. it took half the time i would have otherwise taken, and i was happy, not grumpy, after the experience.
since this was a win-win behaviour i wanted to encourage, i let him go prawning last night after all the chores we done.
