    I wouldnt say I am the CEO, but I am definitely higher up than him. DH does everything in the house except cooking ( which he does on some weekends) and washing the dishes. But he doesn't know, where things are in the house and has to ask me where they are,even for his own stuff!!. But he does the vacuuming, laundry, mowing, paying the bills etc etc.

    I am sure the dynamic will change come jan when our first bub is born, but I know he is always willing to do everything to help me. I am better at managing things and have been pretty independent all my life, but he has been and is still is dependent on his family, so I guess I am just better at this.

    In my family I am the CEO when it comes to the kids ie I organise the Childcare, immunisation, pack snacks for when we are out, buy all the kids things eg toys and clothes etc. I also see this a lot with my friends where it's the mums who pack the kids things, organise outing for the family, buy all the kid related stuff etc.

    In terms of housework dh does his share. Overall I think we have a good set up with dh assuming responsibility for finances, car, yard work, house maintenance. It's a team effort but i do see it as each having primary responsibility for different aspects required to raise a family.
