Let's say you have a wife and an eight-week-old daughter. They're both asleep when you wake up (YAY!!) and look like they're going to stay that way for a while. You also have a dog who you know needs to go outside soon or he'll make a mess in the house (which your wife will have to clean up for various reasons). Do you a.) take the dog out so your wife doesn't have a nasty surprise, or b.) jump on your game and talk over Vent really loudly, waking both wifey and daughter, and completely ignore the dog?

Is it unreasonable of me to expect that my husband would have taken the dog out, knowing how delicate his stomach is and how often he needs a walk? Or am I just being a nag?

Unrelated: if you're a stay-at-home person, how often do you clean? I'm a SAHM but I loathe cleaning. My mother-in-law informed me that since I'm not working, taking care of the house and our daughter is my job. Therefore both should be completely spotless and I should wear pearls while vacuuming. WTH?
