Rich does the laundry. If he does it in the morning before he goes to work then I fold it and put it away. If I am at work on the weekend then he folds it too but I put it away the next day.(We're in an apartment so doing the laundry is a pain!)
I get Lillianna ready for school on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Rich does Tuesdays and Wednesdays because I am at work by then.
I cook during the week. Rich cooks on Sundays and has dinner ready for me at 4pm when I come home exhausted from working all weekend.
We both clean although he is the better cleaner. I prefer cleaning the bathroom myself.
Rich also has Lillianna all to himself all weekend because I am at work.
It's pretty equal, I think, and it works very well!


Here in Australia we also get a 'baby bonus'. It's $3,000 - so not quite as much as in Italy. Apparently it's because we, too, have declining birthrates mainly due to the amount of couples having only 1 or 2 children. So the government are encouraging us to breed LOL


Oh my gosh, I am so very, very lucky. Where to start....

Tims does laundry, dishes, cooks, all the yard work, makes breakfast for the kids each morning, picks up kids from school and day care......I do have it good.


They do it because whole towns are dying out in Italy due to low birth rates, men living at home with their mothers instead of getting married, and people moving away when young. Elementary schools have four or five students in them, etc. After awhile the town just dries up.
