    Same. We we are having this exact same problem right now. Our Roku was going crazy and kept logging out of YouTube TV, Netflix, etc and DH has the password to all except Hulu and I kept having to text him to please log back in! And he'd never do it because he was working!

    DH knows our family doctor because all 4 of us see her, but he has no idea who DS1's allergist or GI doctor is. He's never filled out any paperwork, except for soccer sign-ups. For some reason that's the one thing he's in charge of signing DS2 up for. Any other sport/camp is on me. I also asked him if he knew what meds DS2 was allergic to (amoxicillin and keflex) and he had no idea.

    DS2 is allergic to amoxicillin and DH also did not know this until recently. During dinner one night I was commenting on DS2's medication allergy and DH said "What? He's allergic to amoxicillin?". Umm, yeah, only for at least the past 10 years!

    DS2 has a peanut allergy - can’t eat anything with a peanut warning on the label. He encounters foods he can’t eat everywhere he goes so we only keep foods he can eat in our house. DH never fails to bring items home with a peanut warning. He just doesn’t think to read the labels - 11 years post diagnosis….

    It would not occur to my husband to think about camp until June. He has no idea you have to sign up in January or February to get in! I am sure he also has no idea how much paperwork I fill out for camp, school, sports, daycare, etc.

    Nope, I do it all. I have taken to filling them out when sitting next to him on the couch so he at least sees the labor.

    I do it all, but yes, I am a SAHM. Two years ago when we actually had back to school night the high school and middle school were same night, so I did HS. DH was able to complete the forms a couple of MS teachers asked. He appropriately put my contact info down. I did laugh when he sent me a photo of the permission slip he'd signed to watch a certain movie in social studies class.

    DH does not get the planning ahead part. Especially for his own vacation time. An ongoing frustration I've had as a SAHM. DH had a ton of time last year. I worked 10+ hour days on my feet for two weeks at an early voting location for the election last October/November. Kept asking him to take a few afternoons off or something to ease the crazy (do some shopping, laundry, clean, help with some homework). He took zero time off. Then he "realizes" he has to use vacation or lose it and takes the two middle weeks of November off with zero plan.

    OP... You are NOT ALONE!!! DH doesn't even attend schools meetings anymore! He has no idea who any of DC's doctors are or why they see them! Forms never even make it into his line of vision. I have taken to including him in all e-mails regarding DC, but I don't think he even reads them...

    SAME. He does manage to feed them on days I work and he's home with them but it's really frustrating.

    Ugh. I'm in this crew too. In my case it would take SIGNIFICANTLY less time for me to fill out the forms than to answer DH's questions AND listen to him complain about the forms at the same time. In my case though, it is part me being "the mom" and another part I'm just better and faster at stuff like this, even when filling them out for myself (or even DH, haha!) so I imagine I'll be doing this for many years in the future!
