If the kids have an immediate need then of course we take care of that immediately but if a need is not immediate then DH and I do tend to our relationship.

For me, it is definitely spouse, kids, myself. Because that's what the Bible mandates, and so that's what I try to live by. Obviously if my kids are bleeding and DH wants me to watch a move with him, I'm going to take care of bleeding first. But my spouse should always know that he is absolutely the most important person in my life and always will be. We provide a good, strong marriage and stable family in which our kids can thrive.

Heck...I just returned a dress I bought, because I realized I didnt have enough money for DS's haircut....so now he has a great hair cut and its okay I didnt keep the dress. Maybe I can afford it in a few weeks and it might still be there.

I would say for the most part (almost always), my kids.  But there are times when DH has to come first.  Just like with him, the kids are most always first, but there are times when it needs to be me.
