He is the early riser. He wakes up much before me, wakes up the boys and gets things going for our hectic morning routine. He wakes me up at the very last minute possible to help with dropping the boys at school.
If you are wondering “What the heck do you do around the house in the morning?”, I got a very good answer for that.
My valuable contribution in the morning is making 2 hot cups of coffee and sharing, albeit hurriedly, it with him.
Since he is traveling today, I had to drag myself out of bed and help the boys get ready.
I put out two cups and started pouring coffee in them… and then paused… laughing at myself and my wacko morning neuro-muscular memory.
My morning coffee sharer is only a few 1000 miles away. And, my brain is on autopilot trying to pour his coffee.
Jokes apart….here is to all the people who make our mornings just a tad bit easier… with the little and big things they do to support us.
Here is to the Kumar-like-morning-riser in your life and to the Kumar in my life. Hug your early riser on my behalf.
Here is to this beautiful morning that we were fortunate enough to rise to.
