When Dad Steps in

You know as a Stay At Home MOM there are certain things I cherish.....afterschool talks, volunteering at their school functions, enjoying their days off especially during spring and Christmas breaks, just being available for them no matter what is going on!
I also love being able to pick up their friends and help out other moms when they need help. So right now while I am not able to drive my Sweet Husband has taken my place. I just smile and wait with anticipation at what Jantzen is going to share each day when they return....You see, my husband can be oh so ornery ESPECIALLY in the mornings when Jantzen isn't quite awake and might would rather drive to school saying NOTHING AT ALL LOL.

Today my son had an orthodontist appointment so my dh had to leave work come to pick up Jantz and take him all the way back into town to his ortho which is actually within a mile of where Brian works. Jantzen was in the chair less than 5 minutes and his new wire was in and tightened and his new appt. made for 2 months down the road and they were back on the road again. Well, I think I have shared with you all our LOVE of coffee in our home. I also think I have shared that my Husband is a complete and total coffee snob! We have this OH SO AWESOME coffee shop that is also close to his work that we buy our coffee beans from each and every week. It is called DOUBLESHOT. It is sooo cool! I love to go and just chill, have a cup of coffee and listen to them talk coffee! They are VERY SERIOUS about their coffee! They give me such a HARD TIME for drinking cream in my coffee saying it ruins the coffee LOL I don't mind at all

So today after the orthodontist appointment my husband decided to treat Jantzen to his first trip to Doubleshot. Yes, He drinks coffee too! (His nickname at his school last yr. was BARISTA BOY bc he made all the science teachers coffee each and every morning since he was an aid for one of them) Father and Son spending the afternoon having a cup of coffee, learning where all the beans were coming from and seeing the HUGE Roaster and Grinder they use. I wish I had a picture of their faces as they walked in the house. I am soo blessed to have such a wonderful husband and know that when he steps in at times like these He enjoys it as much as I do and well, so do the kids! Even if they think their morning routine is a bit annoying! Memories and Days like these are gifts to each one of us in different ways!

As I type this I am listening to the blow dryer going .... Dad is in their blow drying Jantzens hair to feather back since it's 80's day! I love that man of mine! He is such an amazing Father and I am so thankful that when I am down I can relax because Dad can step in !! Thank you Honey for all you do!! I love you soo very very much!! XOXOXOXOXO

Didn't He do good!!
