I want to hear all your answers to number 3! What's your favorite and least favorite chore?!

OhhGlam18 says:

But you do work….longer hours than your husband does. He just works outside of the home.

Donna Schooley says:

I really like this one! I was a stay at home mom then a stay at home grandmother for my grandson. I loved this and feel blessed my husband was supportive. I actually loved cooking and baking. Now my husband does most of the cooking. I still bake. I guess my most disliked job was cleaning my kids rooms. I gotta tell you, I always liked doing laundry and still do.

Jacqueline M. says:

My problem is that I'll start a project and not be able to finish it or I get distracted. Like how I'm typing this comment in the middle of cleaning ? love the video as usual! Also question: is Madison having a holiday party at her school and if so are you volunteering? Those are some of my fondest memories being a kid being given the blessing of having a stay at home mom who could attend these events ? I get if chase though at his age makes that a little difficult.

Karen Liu says:

Even though my kids are not super picky but they are still kids, I feel like they always want to eat when it's not dinner time and don't want to eat dinner, so whenever my husband is not home to eat, I really have zero motivation to cook! I totally get what you mean.

Life with Carrie says:

My favorite chore is disinfecting and wiping down the tables & countertops. My least favorite is going to have to be a tie between dishes and decluttering. On the weekends when my husband is home the house seems to just get a little more cluttered. I'm more relaxed on cleaning and there's an extra body adding to our usual mess πŸ™‚

Ashlee Earle says:

Haaaaaate cooking! Craig works for FedEx and doesnt get home until 8-9pm right now. We eat out more than we should. At least they're eating. ??

mommyandmethings says:

My least favorite is cleaning the bathrooms! And my favorite is folding laundry. And yes to cooking! I really like cooking. But it takes too much time and the kids don't want to eat most of it. And they act crazy when I'm trying to cook.

Muriel Davis says:

Stay at home Mom highest paying job ever? ?My least favorite is folding clothes

Katie_Noelani91 says:

Don't feel guilty! You have the hardest job! Being a mommy is a full time job. Girl you kick ass every single day! Pat yourself on the back!❀️❀️

Jacqueline Luna says:

Great video. I am also waiting for the day where we can take a pill everyday for our daily food intake. I’m still waiting for us to live like the Jetsons. Only thing I would be nervous about is flying cars, which soon could become a reality.

nicoleandchris2002 says:

My living room is not clean without vacuum lines.

Gail Gurl says:

Hi Jill awsome video I am a stay at home mom of 3 least favorite chore is dishes were I rent we have no dish washer..but love to clean everything else!!

RealHousewifeRachel says:

Favorite: vacuuming (I love vacuum lines too!!), Least favorite: cleaning toilets #boymom πŸ™‚

Emily Jean says:

It's so true that everyone's house has its own smell! Guess we just gotta hope it's a nice one. Growing up we had a neighbor and her house always smelled like soup, and I mean always. It was kinda weird and we always referred to her as soup lady, lol.

Jamie Tyler says:

I was the same way when we were renting! Home Decor is sooo expensive! Or at least here it is ? so I didn't want to buy things that fit the houses we were renting and then maybe they wouldn't go with the house we would decided to buy especially when buying a house is in the near future ?? I can't wait I love the home buying process try to enjoy it because it can be stressful too! ? good luck to you guys!!

Brandi Kiggans says:
