  • My Husband and I make decisions Together..usually the day before whatever it is We're deciding on.

  • The simple "day-to-day issues" (do they need haircuts, is this more than a cold and I need to take him to the Dr., Meals, playdates etc...) , mostly fall on me as I am a SAHM and my hubby works a lot. Anything "big" or "important" we discuss and make a joint decision. Of course some days, some of the simple things seems bigger than they really are, so I get his input (you know those days... the sleep deprived hormonal days lol) ;o) But honestly, we are a team. I just don't have him fret over all the small details, that's MY job, since I am the one with the boys 24 hours a day.

  • That would be me! All the time! If it is something big, then I will consult my DH, but I would have to say that I make 95% of the decisions.

  • When it comes to the kids, I make about 99% of the decisions, because I'm the one who is around most of the time. If it's a big important decision we would discuss it, but the day to day stuff is pretty much all up to me.

  • I would say I make most of the decisions around here, but when it's necessary or when he's home or on the phone (while at work) then I include him in every decision. When he isn't around to decide I make it priority to inform him when he gets home though.
