Expectations of the "Daddy"

While I have many-a-vent about my husband, I have to say that lately, he has been really wonderful about helping out with me being a working Mom. One of the hardest thing for me is getting out the door in the morning. For example, this morning I needed 2 breakfasts packed, 1 lunch for kids, lunch for me, gym bag, sheet for each kid, blankie for each kid, 1 stuffed animal, coffee mug, keys, purse, sunglasses, check for daycare, and a replenishment of spare clothes for the kids. Needless to say, without a lot of organization, it would take me hours to get out the door!

My dh has really been wonderful about the mornings. We (he) does a lot of the prep the night before for lunches - but he gets up, packs 4 lunch bags (for the kids, himself, and me) and put ALL of the above items in the car for me. He leaves for work before me, but this allows me to focus on JUST getting the kids dressed and out the door in the morning.

It's really wonderful to have it all ready - I am so lucky... and I have been sure to tell him how much I appreciate it - it makes my mornings go so much more smoothly!
