UK Trixie

There’s a funny TTU mention in the Guardian. They just like us because all Trixie’s teeth are named after British Battleships.

    i cant tell if that mention is a good thing (stay at home day…yea us!) or bad thing (get off the computer and clean out the fridge)….

    I think it is a great article! I do wonder, how do you manage to keep up with your household and the blogging? I think you are doing a great job with the site!

    I have wondered that, too. Is it right to assume that the stay-at-home spouse is also responsible for the bulk of the housework? We (basically) split household tasks along the lines of frequency. I (the stayer-at-home) do the weekly chores, and my husband does the bigger, occasional stuff, like cleaning the gutters. He also cleans the bathrooms.

    (This is just a recent arrangement — our son, Jonah, is 6 months old and we’re just now trying to regain control of The Household. I guess we’ll see how this works out.)

    As a matter of fact, my husband wrote a Trixie-Telemetry inspired Perl script to help us keep track of what needs to be done. We don’t keep records, though, so no “Spouse vs. Chore Frequency” or “Kitchen Cleanliness vs. Lawn Length” charts in our near future.

    It *is* a very weird article. Couldn’t tell if the author was sneering or admiring. Or drunk.

    There’s not too much household to speak of — we live in a really small apartment (it’s like 75 sq ft). And since we rent, there’s no yardwork or heavy work to speak of. As a rule, we run the dishwasher and the washing machine every 2-3 days and sweep every day. We tackle major cleaning every few weeks. I usually handle dinner just because I’m SO HAPPY that there’s someone else to keep Trixie the hell away from me. We eat take-out a lot, too. Hope this helps.

    So glad to hear that you rent. I am always thinking that I MUST own a house/apt before having a baby.

  7. It’s great to see the non-political side of the blogosphere getting the attention it deserves. Congrats!

    John: The author wasn’t sneering or drunk – he was British. Easy to get those three things mixed up.

    It is a weird article, they used pictures of my children in the centre of the page too – and without my permission. Ironic, as one of the main thrusts of the article considered the dangers of putting pictures of your children on the internets where anyone could see them…
