A Monday Morning to Remember

If someone would have told me when I was a teenager what I would consider sleeping in one day I would have LAUGHED in their FACE! But this morning, my husband took the day off (poor guy, it is well-deserved!) and let me sleep in!

He got up with the alarm, got dressed and headed upstairs. He proceeded to get the children up and going, dressed and ready. He fed them breakfast and got their lunches packed! Oh, and he had coffee MADE and waiting for me!

I came upstairs, unshowered and still in my pj's at 7:30. (I never do this. I kind of have a policy of getting myself ready for the day before coming upstairs...because if I don't, I most likely never will take a shower or brush my teeth). I found everyone happy and ready!

Jody then took Silas and Hattie to school. Luke rode along. (Jody does this most every morning) Then he took Luke with him to run some errands. This in itself was a HUGE blessing since Luke is driving me crazy lately with a running commentary on life!!!

While they were gone, I fed Millie Grace (and myself) and played with her a little and laid her down for her morning nap. I unloaded and loaded the dishwashers, got a load of clothes going, looked through the mail leisurely, took a shower and got ready, all by myself. It was GREAT!

I thought I'd get my blog done before they came home, but not quite. Jody has come home and put a new battery in his dead, old, truck. And is now going to eat lunch with Silas and Hattie at their school.

Man, what a productive, wonderful Monday morning! Now its time to go play Hungry Hippos with a begging 3yr-old. Hope you guys have a great Monday too!

Um if someone had of told me when I was a teenage that one day I would never get to sleep late again I would have cried in their face. :) ha! Or that sleeping until 7:30 would be considered "sleeping in". haha!

No seriously that is awesome. I can't imagine your morning routine with 4 kids and like Tasha said it is awesome when our husbands do things like that. Good job Jody!
