In my home, it was never just my mom that made meals, worked on the yard, and cleaned the house. My dad, who is an extremely clean military man, was always the one tidying up the house, and cooking dinner.
My father, who was also very picky about cleaning his uniforms would also tend to the laundry. Taking the time to hang my delicate little-girl dresses to dry outside.
