Who runs your house?

You, your spouse, a combination, or your kids?  I have read so many posts lately where parents say that they let their children make all kinds of decisions...I believe that kids of a certain age should have a say, but that parents lay down the law.  How does it work in your house?

Dh has the final say for most things but honestly it depends on the situation and it depends on whos here at the time.

I run the house!!  I try to include my DH but usually he's to busy on WOW or thinks I'm being obsessed over something stupid or he's mad because I don't want to do things "his" way.  lol  I do EVERYTHING around here with the exception of DH cooking once in a blue moon and changing the kids and feeding them WHEN I ASK HIM TO.  I love my DH very very much but MEN... ugh!  lol  My kids will never run the house.  My oldest is 3 and I will ask her what she wants for breakfast... along with my 2 y.o. and let them make decisions like that but I don't let them whine for no reason or give me or their father an attitude and they need to treat each other nicely.  :-) 

Wow, this sounds pretty rude... I don't mean it that way at all. lol :-)

All I can say is that I do...but I never say no to my DH when he wants something, it actually makes me feel great letting him get what he wants.  Which yes means my wants go out the window, but I don't want for alot nor do I need alot!

I'd like to say I do, considering SO works all day and it's just me and the kiddies, but right now it's the newborn LOL!!! We only sleep when he says it's ok, and we're waiting on him hand and foot lol. No but seriously, it's pretty much a joint effort, although I do have the final say on most things....
