A Guilty Conscience -

Smart and Trendy Moms

It's the Weekend and We have NO PLANS except Mr. Wonderful is taking me on a HOT DATE tonight! Oh, he's so good to me!!!!

- So, I try to pertain the duties of a housewife. Not because I feel like it or Aaron expects me too. No way! Only because I want too & ready that's how I am. I'm a care taker. Everyday I cook, I clean, I do Laundry, I make sure his uniforms are ready set... blah blah blah. We eat together, go to bed together, and make sure there is "US" time. One thing I don't do... and I really am going to try and start, is getting up with him in to morning. I get up 30 minutes after he leaves for work and he doesn't mind it. But the other day, jokingly I heard him say to someone, Yeah, It sucks leaving Jessica in the morning while she in the bed. I did think to myself, awe.. but nothing else really. I leave his medicine on the counter with an empty glass & his clothes are laid out ready to be put on and then if he wants breakfast, there is pop tarts, toasterstuils, bagels, or English muffins. Is that bad??? I feel bad.
I think 30 minutes is nothing. I think I'm going to REALLY try to get up with him. Today, he has off. So it was my turn to leave him. I HATED IT more than anything. I couldn't do it. I kept coming back and sitting on the bed talking to him. Who the heck wants to be talked to when they are sleeping? I HATED it so much & had a hard time. He communicated back, but when I was leaving he says I get to be Jessica now... "I love you baby, have a good day!" - UGH! pooh on you! So, do you get up with your hubby or better half?
I'm struggling with this, and think it's time to get up and make breakfast. He's a hard working man, in the HOT heat all day. He supports me, he supports us.  Truly, I'm spoiled and get anything thing I want. [With Reason] He is amazing and deserves company. Right? What do you think? What is it like for you at home? Help me, I feel guilty! What do you do? How does it work?

Awe, you guys are so cute.

I do feel bad when I'm in bed while my hubby is running around getting ready for work. But there really is no need for me to get up at 7:30am- I make a point to talk with him, make sure he's got everything he needs, and i make sure i always say goodbye (before i fall back asleep) and give him a smooch!

Nothing wrong with what your doing, and as life progresses and things, jobs, marriage, life, babies, change your style you'll find what suits you both!

Danny and I work different schedules completely and I have to be honest - he can cook his own breakfast. LOL

I love doing things for my man and I am very very spoiled by him. But I refuse to do every little thing for him - because I have WAY too many other things to be doing and I have two kids to take care of. I don't need a third! LOL

stopping by from Friday follow! I struggle with this, but my husband is a fireman with a weird schedule. He is the fire marshall and works four tens, which also means he starts his day at 5 am. I am not a morning person. I still get up at 6 to get all of the six big kids to school, but I just don't think I can get up an hour earlier. I'm not that nice of a wife.

The Hubs and I get up and leave together. But we work the same hours and our buildings are only a couple blocks from each other. So we drive together too. It helps save on money. But back when we were different shifts and even on weekends, I don't get up with him. I like my sleep to much to do that. And he still gets a half hour more sleep in the morning while he is waiting for me to get out of the shower.

Stopping by from Follow me Chick-a-dee.

My husband is an early riser-all those days on the farm.
I tend to get up with him more during the school year when I have to get up. Other wise I don't.
I think you guys are doing great.

I don't get up with Mike most of the time. I 'usually' wake up literally 5 minutes after he walks out the door. When I do wake up early we sit and talk and then he forgets key deodorant. LOL

Our system seems to work for us: He gets up, gets showered, get mostly ready for work then lays down and holds me for a while as I doze in and out. I LOVE that.

Anyway, you'll totally find what works for you. We've gone round and round, sometimes I'm up early, sometimes he's up early. Just depends on the day, month, year...
