oops, wrong place
But if both parents are home, you said you still believe that the sahp should do the bulk of those duties....both parents are home and available, why the sahp?
Where did I say that?
Maybe it would help if you knew that I consider all of these things to fall under the heading "household management".

I askedyou the same question that this thread is asking.
You consider bill paying to be a 'Dad duty'? Interesting. I've always thought of it as a traditionally female role.
Even as a PTWOH, I expect to do the majority of the housework. It just makes sense to me that SO's much more limited time at home should focus on spending time with the baby/family rather than doing the dishes. He pitches in at the weekends of course, but I try to have most of it done by then.
So, if one parent works outside the home they are working all day, and if another parent stays home they are not working.
