Do you get up with DH/SO and send him off to work?

DH likes tea and bread before work. I found that we have a good day when I send him off with a kiss after his tea. A better day than when I sleep in and don't see him go out the door. I also like knowing what he had on that day.

  • I am still awake when he leaves for work but I make it a point to be awake when he's leaving. He doesn't eat breakfast or drink coffee or anything so I don't fix anything but I do pack his lunch everyday and always make something special in it like homemade cookies. I usually put a note in there that says something like"Made 4 U by me with love xoxo

  • No, I'm not, though he does wake me up and kiss me goodbye, and often I get up not too long before he leaves. I've offered to get up with him many times over the yrs and make him breakfast, etc. But he prefers to have that time just for him as his quiet time before he starts his day.

    Some guys like to have their time after work, he prefers his before :-)

  • He wakes at 5 am , im awake when he gets up but i stay in bed for another hald hour until i have to get up and get the kids ready for school. He doesnt eat breakfast that early , but there are times when he come home after P.T at about 7:30 , thats when ill make us breakfast and spend some time before he goes back. i love those days. We dont get much time alone besides that.

  • Mine is long gone at 5 am.. so I don't wake up. I get up at 6:30 to get my kids ready for school. He gives me a kiss goodbye every morning though.

  • No, I don't. I am usually up late trying to clean up, and finish working. So there is no reason for me to wake up at 5am with DH. He doesnt mind either. He usually only leaves enough time to walk the dog, get dressed, and go,lol.

  • I do get up with dh ever so often and fix breakfast for him. He leaves around 5:00 a.m and I have to be up by 6:30 with the kids. I don't do it every day..cuz..I don't want him to get spoiled! lol
