He really IS my Prince Charming

DH normally watches Sweet Pea and Stinker while I take Princess to school. I’m gone 20 minutes tops, and when I arrive home DH can go back to bed or shower and get dressed for work, depending on what he’s scheduled to work that day. I appreciate him for making this effort to ease the stress that comes with getting three wiggleworts ready before my 7:30AM departure time. Occasionally, I get all three girls dressed and take them with me anyway, just to let DH know that I take nothing he does for granted. Monday night, I saw on my husband’s schedule that he had an early shift. I knew that he couldn’t provide his normal babysitting service AND be ready for work in time. On Tuesday morning, I was up before my daughters and I was on top of my game. Every child was awake, cleaned, brushed and dressed before our departure time, and were enjoying a short *Noggin* show before we left for school. DH was showered, dressed and smiling when he walked out to the living room at 7:25AM. Both of us gaped at each other in amazement. We had BOTH risen early to take care of the needs of our spouse. You could have knocked me over with a feather! I have an appropriate nickname for him, I think.

    Hey,
    I actually know Prince Charming – he is all she describes and more!

    I’d want him around if i was in the hospital ( more than my own family!)
