  • My husband.. It takes longer to wrap his Daastar (his turban) than it does for me to get ready usually.. lol .

    Maybe I should put it this way.. It takes longer for me to get ready because I usually stop and help him with his Daastar then I finish getting ready.. lol

  • i get up before the DH, take my shower, put on the make up, do the hair, then proceed to pick up after the kids, make the coffee, feed the dogs, feed the cats, do any leftover dishes from the night before, and basically straighten up the house..... the DH gets up, takes a shower, and out the door... So i would have to say me... :(

  • I have to "one up" mommy of two...I get 4 children ready, and myself, long before HE'S ready (most of the time). Of course, the kids are mostly self-sufficient (dress themselves), but the two younger ones still need me to pick out something for them to wear.

  • If he has been up and about for several hours, then it only takes him a minute. If we're talking morning, he takes a couple hours to even be able to find his clothes... then, well... he wanders in circles looking for everything. LOL he'd be lost without me.

  • Technically, the amount of time it takes me to get ready is longer. BUT DF will wait til I'm done, ready to walk out the door and then he'll be like "I need to brush my teeth", "where are my shoes?", "where are my keys and wallet?" DRIVES ME UP A WALL. I'll ask him if he is COMPLETELY ready when I'm almost done so maybe he will ACTUALLY be ready when I am. Never works. Hmph.
