I've bragged on Dave's morning skills before - but I'm going to do it again.... because he's awesome.
In the mornings pretty much my only responsibility is getting myself up and ready and picking out an outfit for Griffin (which I typically do the night before anyway). Dave gets lunches ready and makes sure Luke gets dressed and then Luke and I are typically gone by 7:00. Sometimes the littles are awake when I leave, but some mornings they're still sleeping.
After I leave, Dave gets Mason and Griffin up, fed, dressed and to Miss Lisa's house. I told you - he's awesome. In between 1st and 2nd periods, I typically check my phone and I get to see a picture of the littles dressed and ready for the day. Dave always texts, "Happy Morning!" and, despite the pictures being anything but "picture perfect", they ALWAYS make me smile and more than often giggle as well :) See for yourself...
(note.... pre-haircut and post-haricut pics for Mason.... he's definitely a short-hair kind of guy) :)
If they're being particularly squirrely sometimes I'll get the carseat pic :)
(yes... they're both still rear facing in Dave's car - Griffin is still rear facing in our van as well)
Tuesday morning both of my super social kids were busy waving to landscapers across the street that they couldn't be bothered to look at Dave :)
Holding hands... I die!
Yes... she's playing with the outlet :) But she's wearing a bow and kind of looking - so we'll count it as a win. hahaha
Yesterday morning I got a pic from Kroger (they had to stop and pick up diapers on the way to Miss Lisa's) and he washed her hair before they left because she rubbed banana in it. I'm telling you - I married up! :)
And look what I found....
This was their very first "Happy Morning" picture together!!! It's from August of last year and I MAY have ugly cried just a bit when I saw it last night. Because WHHHHHY to they have to grow up so fast?!?!?!
As I was writing this post Dave reminded me that this time next year the Happy Morning texts will just be of GG since Mason will be joining me and Luke at MCA. HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!?!
