I Am the…


I started thinking the other day about the delegation of duties between myself and the hubs and how interesting it is which jobs fell to which person. Some of them are very traditional (he mows the lawn, I do the laundry), and some of them seem totally random. It made me want to start listing out all the things that I am in our family, just to see it on paper. I even asked Ryan and he came up with some that I never would have thought of (apparently I’m the only one who puts gas in the car?!). So here’s my list. Leave me a list of a few of the things that you are! xoxo

  1. This is such a great activity! I’m totally going to try this with my husband and the kiddos tonight 🙂

  2. Now that we have a baby, we’ve really dug down into our roles. My amazing hubby is the first person I’ve really trusted to depend on. He makes all our meals. He changes most of the dirty diapers. He reads every manual about baby-related items. I’m the financial planner. The strategist. The list maker. And I can function on a few cat naps in between breast feeding, for quite a while. I try to let him sleep long stretches when I can quiet the babe. He takes such good care of our family and we’re all less stressed if we can play up each other’s strengths and pick up the slack where we can. Great post.
