I hear feminists say things like “Don’t say your man is ‘helping’ when he does the dishes or takes care of the kids, because it insinuates that it’s a woman’s job,” and that’s nice in theory. However, I am always appreciative when my husband steps in and does things that I normally do. I usually do the laundry and feed the baby and other such things, and it really does feel like “helping” when he does it. It’s one less thing I have to do! He thinks it’s silly when I thank him for it, because he is also of the mindset that it’s not one person’s job, but I seriously feel grateful when he “helps me out.” I realize that it’s not just my job, and that we share responsibility, but that’s the point I’m trying to make, actually. If I were a single mom, I’d have to do it all myself, and I’m so grateful to have such a helpful partner. Many men think that because they make the money, that they shouldn’t have to do anything when they get home, but my husband isn’t that way. I think that’s wonderful and I love him for it. We help each other, so that neither of us has too much weight to carry. That’s beautiful to me.
