Next on the agenda....

Getting hubby's lunch and coffee ready the night before.....

Right now, I get up before hubby and make his coffee and lunch for his long day at work. However, I trying to train myself to get it all made and ready to go the night before. After baby comes, who knows if I'll be able to make his lunch on the dot every morning. I might be nursing, or changing a diaper, or cleaning up after a diaper explosion, or finally getting some shut-eye after a night up with a colicy baby. Thus, I need to be prepared, and the best way to prepare is to have "fire drills" before hand. That is, to actually do the task repeatedly before it NEEDS to be done. :)

Ok, ok, I can just hear some readers now...."Why can't your hubby take up the time to make his lunch and coffee?" Believe me, there are many reasons, and not one of them is because he's lazy. It's because he works VERY hard! As hard as a newborn baby is, my hubby still works harder! Believe me. After baby's born, he will have to pour his own coffee and pack his own (already prepared) lunch (a ham and cheese sandwich won't last in his lunchpail overnight!) This is just a nice compromise for both of us. :)

Don't apologise for Packing your Dh's lunch. I used to do It all the time. My DH worked in Industrial Construction, and often got up at 4 am (because we choose to live so far from the city) It was a blessing to him and a sweet time of fellowship together without the children before we began our day. It was also a time when we could talk about calendar issues and Prayer requests,and there is nothing nicer than a kiss to start your day.
DH often does not need a lunch now that we have our own business, and sometimes he comes home for lunch. I'm trying to get back into the habit of fixing his coffee in the morning, but he keeps getting up first and making coffee to bring to me:)

My husband takes leftovers or sandwiches, I let him know what is available and he picks what he wants, and packs his own lunch. I make jello and pudding in the little 1/2 cup gladware cups and put it in the fridge. When we have leftovers, I immediately place it into containers for lunches so it is already fixed. Thats not too hard for him. I think its sweet of you to fix it for him...then you can write him love notes and hid them in his lunchbox. ;-)
