But rewarding some of the things I face in one day as being a wife can be very discouraging though. Wash the clothes, cook tha dinner give the kids a bath, make love to your husband. Please respond and tell me what you face on a day to day schedule of being a WIFE. BE HONEST NOW. LOL . Just have fyn with it.

Oh that is so funny! Well at least you are still getting your responsibilities done, brownie points there. I only recently found mylot but now I find myself on here quite frequently. And have since gotten a friend addicted. She's thanked me already. haha

I am single now,but I know that when I did have a partner I found it difficult doing all the work in the house and working a full time job. I brought in less money than him, still had to pay my share of the bills and do all that extra work. Not rewarding at all.

Hmm, yea, definitely does not sound rewarding. At least you got out of that situation. Hopefully the next will be extremely rewarding! I think if I worked full time, as my husband does, we would share a lot more in the duties of the kids and house. I am fortunate enough to stay home with our two little ones, but then again, that makes for even more stress sometimes because he doesn't always see that as a full time thing, and thinks the house should still be clean, dinner made, shopping done, playdates with other kids, etc. But I can't complain, I wouldn't trade my husband or my blessing of staying home.

Most definitely challenging especially when your hubby doesn't help you out when you need him to. I do practically EVERYTHING at home except when he feels like cooking the odd dinner in the weekends (somehow that changed along the way!). He won't even take out the trash when I ask him to, or when I do, he says he will, hours later, its still sitting there and of course I end up doing it. I get frustrated and i've even spoken to him about it and he says he will try to help, but he doesn't most of the time. Now and then my heart skips a beat when he vaccums a room LOL Nowadays, I just do what I can, and if it means not washing his work clothes or ironing then so be it! when he gets grumpy i fire it right back at him LOL other than that, he can be very loving and caring especially when it comes to our son.

I am a husband not wife but I find interest to response this nice topic. Being a wife for a girl is God wish and God created girl or female with such a jin in which there have more tolerance strength than a boy or male, and other vital jin for which girl have more patients, more loving heart, more ability to make close of hubby's family members and hubby's closed relatives, have more thoughtful ability to manage a situation of hubby's family, more affectionate to their kids etc. many adjectives owning by a girl or female for which she is only perfect to become a "Wife". I am in deep sorrow when I see girl or women with such huge nice and uncomparable adjectives, some male or man are giving them pain and hate and push them into odd situation by divorce or otherway!!!

Doing all these things as a wife and the husband also slogs at his work and the children also try to do their best in school/studies/play, and at the end of the day when we yearn to meet/ get together to talk to and discuss the day 's matters is nothing but heaven, that feeling is quiet rewarding, everyday we only long to stay together is nothing but love in harmony, we should be fortunate enough to experience this.

It can certainly be very challenging!! Let's see, on a day-to-day basis: get up (too early), get the kids up, on the potty (we're training right now), play a bit with them, check my email, ebay, mylot, bargain board, get the kids breakfast, play with them a bit more, put on The Little Mermaid, clean up a bit (and by bit I mean, a tad), sit my behind on the computer again, post some ebay items, post on mylot, check email and the bargain board again, get the kids down for nap, get back on the computer, take a shower, computer again (i promise I'm working most of the time, not just surfing the net), put on make-up in front of the tv, get kids up, play/read/spend time with kids, ohh, and potty again, forgot that earlier, feed the kids a snack, call hubby and tell him what cute things they've done today and ask what he wants for dinner, computer again, play again, kids lunch, kids down for nap, oops, potty first, then more computer work, paperwork, start the house cleaning process, bed, kids bathroom, vacuuming, dishes, (if it's friday, gather laundry), sweep, mop, kitchen, living room pick up, i dunno, whatever else. Then late afternoon I start dinner, play with kids, more potty time, perhaps squeeze in some Oprah. When hubby gets home we (I) feed them dinner, make his plate, clean up the kids, bathe them (hubby helps), play with them in their room, then let them play for a half hour while we eat our cold dinner, then put the kids to bed, computer time, hubby watches tv, maybe we spend a little time watching tv together, fall asleep on the couch cramped up, then go to bed. ~you don't need the rest of the details, do you?~ lol If you even made it that far, wow, you like to read! Nothing too exciting, I do spend a lot of time on the computer but being a SAHM it's my only way to make money from home. (and no, mylot is not what I consider working from home, it's just my fun way to make a few extra cents) Whew, even I'm tired of typing in this thread. =)
