with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband and I have chores that we are in charge of that definitely fall in the realm of “pink and blue.” He chops firewood and takes out the garbage, I do the grocery shopping and make all of our meals. I’d use the argument that we do them because we love them (I love to cook!), but dealing with garbage isn’t necessarily something that gives my husband the feeling of fulfillment.
That said, our house isn’t as strictly “blue and pink” as some houses are. My husband would get up in the night with our babies, he likes to clean the floors (I’ve washed them maybe five times in twelve years of marriage), and he often gets to the toilets before I do. As for me, I’ve been known to swing an ax to make kindling, I’ve done some of the heavier yard work, and I know how to wield a hammer.
How does it work in your house? Is there a blue and pink divide, or do you operate independent of the stereotypes?
