I'm usually in charge of drop off/pick up because it's only a couple minutes from my work, but there are time my DH will have to do it if I have something come up. I wish it was more convenient for him to help more so i could run to store, ect. without 2 little ones in tow, but it is what it is What about you?

Our set up is - from West to East...DH work, Home, My Work, Daycare. Granted this is all about 8 miles West to East - so not far.
But - bc it is technically out of the way for DH - I do all drop offs (DH is just not a morning person - he does a drop off if I need him to) and I do 80% of pick ups.
Once DD2 arrives we will switch things up a bit and DH will do pick ups 2-3 times a week to help me out.

I do both - DH works 90 mins away and leaves before DCP opens and gets home after they close

Our daycare is near our home. Hubs and I both work 30+ minutes away in opposite directions. He does drop-off and I do pick-up.

I do drop off and pick up at my mom's house everyday. It's tiring just because she always wants to chit chat and I just want to get outta there and go home with DS after a long work day! But I don't want to hurt her feelings so I typically end up staying for a few minutes.

I do all drop offs and pick ups. I work closer to the daycare, and I made a decision to do all the drop/pick ups because it will force me to leave work at a designated time every day.

My husband does both usually. Once or twice a week I'll do pick up, but very rarely drop off.

The daycare is across the street from our house. So we both do it. Pretty convenient.

I do both. DH commutes over an hour to work each way which doesn't give him time to do either. Sometimes if he gets off early he'll do pick up. I would love to be able to run to the store without both kids, but for the most part it's not possible

DH heads out to work at 1pm and drops J at preschool. I pick him up on the way home from my work between 4:30-5.

DH does drop off and pickup. He works a 5 minute walk from home and from daycare, and I work downtown. If he has a late meeting, I can work from home and do the dropoff/pickup.

I do both, DH works long hours so he isn't usually around. Maybe 1-2 days a week he comes to pick up. It's such a grind on me...

I do both. School is 830-330 and DH is usually gone 630-6 or later. Once in a blue moon he can do pick up.

@DillonLion: same here! i'm going to enjoy it while it lasts, as it will probably change when kindergarten starts.

DS doesn't start until April, but we are planning for me to do drop offs and him to do pickups. He is more of a morning person and likes to be at work for 7, which is when DCP opens.

DH does both. His work hours are a lot more predictable than mine, so we purposely chose a center very close to his job.

@edelweiss: Ditto. It probably will only be for another year or two at the most, but I love being together for the extra tiny bit of time.

I usually do drop offs and DH does pick ups. Sometimes we switch if he has to work late or I will just do both. It helps that daycare is half a mile away from our house (although sometimes with traffic it can still take over 10 minutes to get to either place!).

I usually do both, but now that I can't lift my son, one of the grandmas does drop off and DH does pick up.

100% DH. I feel spoiled that I don't have to deal with it at all, and I enjoy being able to get ready in the morning all by myself, but I also get a little bummed that I'm cut off completely from her daycare life.

she goes 2x a week, Tues/Wed and I do almost 100% of drop offs and 75% of pick ups due to DH's work schedule.

LO's daycare is on campus. So I drop her off on my way to work and DH picks us both up. He used to get her first but lately due to weather he's been picking me up first and we both go get her.

I drop off and DH picks up most days. I like going, seeing the teachers, checking out the kids artwork, meeting some of the other parents, getting to know the other kids. I always allow a little extra time to socialize!

I do both, but DH will do pickup if I'm working a bit later (which is rare). Maybe 4x a year?
