  • It really depends on what my son is doing, my DH gets more upset with his silliness than I do especially in public, but when DS is being difficult, he really pushes my buttons!

  • It depends on the day around here. I am a SAHM, so some days when he gets home he has more patience to give than I have left. Other days things that drive him nuts, I don't even notice. :-)

  • I am most of the time. When our son was first born my hubby was always frustrated. He is better now and he sometimes tells me to calm down. We work well helping each other out.

  • I was more patient. My husband let a lot of things go, but it wasn't patience as much as not wanting to be bothered or not caring about a particular issue. :)

  • Depends when I am at my ropes end, my husband picks up and is more patient than me, but when he is at his wits end then vice versa...I don't understand it either but it works! Kind of a GET THEM OUT OF MY HAIR SO I CAN BREATH FOR FIVE MINUTES and then we are all good again.
