My husband and I always kind of split the chores along our tolerance levels.. I don't mind clutter, but HATE dirty dishes. He hated smelly dogs so he washed them, I made sure they had food. Pretty much whoever couldn't stand some condition around the house, took care of it.

That doesn't work so well now that our kids are older (9 and 13). Their tolerance level for things is just too high. So when my husband or I can't stand something and don't have time to clean it up, any idle child is fair game. They have learned to keep busy... :::weg:::
