Ridiculous

Brody is a morning person. He likes getting up, having coffee, reading the paper and watching Sports Center before any of us are awake. Thankfully, he also likes getting the kids up and having breakfast with them...it's their time together since several nights a week he doesn't get home until after they are in bed. Every night this is his routine:
Set out Scarlett's bowl and plate for breakfast
get Clark's bottle, cereal and fruit ready
and since our fabulous and much prettier coffee maker broke, he now gets the coffee ready because this one doesn't have a timer (btw...this cheapie version from HEB has worked much better than the fancy one, go figure)
I am glad he's so organized and even more thrilled that he likes this time with the kids. They can start their morning in an organized and calm way...as opposed to when I do it...running around in a dither slurping down coffee. Thanks babe.

I love hearing about other daddies who cherish their one-on-one time with their kids. It's definitely a NICE break for us moms! ;o)

Ummm...where can I sign up? Nathan is the bedtime guru, but I have never seen this from a man before...you scored BIG! :) That is what my life is like in my head, but not in reality.

Very, very sweet Brody. We all are glad he is a part of our fam.

What a sweet guy! I love it when Hershel gets Mia up and lets me sleep in! We are blessed!

Love that! I remember you telling me how he did this a few years ago - and sometimes when I'm so tired in the morning - John leaves at around 6am - I think about how you are still sleeping!!! And I wish for a second John was a tennis guy too!!! He does do bedtime though and that is his time with the kids.

This reminds me of my dad. He would even set out the vitamins at each one of our placemats.

He's a winner and keeper!!! You are blessed.

ok, is he organized or OCD or lazy??? i am the same way, but it is not b/c i am organized, but always rushing in the morning. so if i get it all ready, then i don't have so much to do in the morning. how great that he has this time though. they will cherish that forever. so how late do you get to sleep in - my kind of girl!!! i get that on sat.

That's amazing! I thought my husband was pretty organized and put together, but Brody puts him to shame...and me for that matter.

I stumbled on you blog from a comment you put on Mike and Denises blog. My name is Sheridan and my dad and your dad are first cousin (his name is Bruce Elam and looks a lot like you dad with brown hair. you probably know my brother too because he went to church with ya'll in SA while attending UTSA). Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I was totally impressed with your husband. Josh and I are both not morning people and thankfully our children sleep in for the most part. Hope ya'll have a great weekend. We're off to the lake.

Brady is the same way - such a morning person, however - I'm a nightowl. Brady takes care of Bella is she's up before me, as well. Isn't it wonderful!
