Simply Appreciative

A simple breakfast that I prepared for hubby several weeks back–fried rice and omelet. With coffee, of course.

Today, I woke up rather early and so I had the chance of preparing breakfast for my hubby.

While the helper usually does it it for the whole family, I used to prepare something special for him. It was more frequent before we had Dindin but when we had a child, it became sparse. But I still managed to do it. Hubby loves the gesture and of course, he likes what I make better than what the helper prepares.

But since last year, I got soooo busy that I would stay up very late or until the wee hours of the morning so I would end up waking later than the two of them. Sometimes, he even has to make Dindin’s milk.

Despite all these, hubby had been very understanding and has never once complained. But whenever there are those rare times that I was able to get up early and wake him up with something that smells good inside the room, his smile is priceless. He just knows how to appreciate what he has and not complain–even when he has all the right to.

Though I really can’t do this every day, I sure hope that I could do this at least once a week.

Thanks much, Babe, for being ever so understanding despite my shortcomings. Thank you and I love you. πŸ˜€ And of course, I thank God for you. πŸ˜€

  1. What a lucky man! You’re lucky too for having a very understanding husband. πŸ™‚
    We had fried rice the other day and I put some chorizo to give it distinct yummy taste. Your fried rice looks better than mine though. πŸ™‚

  2. You’re lucky to have a supportive and understanding husband. Not many women can say that their husbands are like that. He deserves all the love and care you could give him.

  3. I feel for you, I’m guilty of that too. Most of the time, I don’t have time to prepare the dishes for my husband. Before giving birth, I was in-charge of everything but, now, I’m so dependent with our helper.

    It’s a good thing that your husband is appreciative of your efforts.

  4. When i see one, i always remember my father, he loves omelet, he knows several version of it from the simplest to the grandest. Now, seeing your post reminds me of him.

  5. I try to do the same thing for hubby because he wakes up before me especially during school days. As much as I can, I try to prepare breakfast at least once a week.

  6. Wow! a simple yet special breakfast! I only prepare simple breakfast for my kids since hubby is not around, but I think I should make one special meal at least once a week for my kids. They’re not complaining but I think they’re tired of the same breakfast everyday.

  7. I agree with Iris, though I try to always make breakfast for the hubs…at times, I can’t manage since I have to bring the kids to school too…keep it up, once in a while will surely be appreciated a lifetime… πŸ™‚

  8. I always cook breakfast for my husband and daughter every weekend. It’s the only time I can do something for them because I also go to the office on weekdays.
