Best Valentine's Day Present EVER!

Ok guys out there!  There is still time to pull this off!  Read carefully, and take good notes!

Backstory:

Today was the first day in recent memory there were no school delays and/or closings running along the bottom of our local news station!

Today was the day that Tall Guy and I thought would put us back on the road to normal.  He was going to haul grain, and I was headed to Indy with two friends to commune with my RFOA friends.  We were sooooo excited to get the girls on the bus and get going......

But Miss Bear woke up with a tummy ache.......Sigh.....

I have to be very honest here and say that I was very frustrated....We have been fighting tummy aches for a while now, and we are attacking them from every angle possible, but they are totally unpredictable, and I think are 50% physical and 50% emotional.  If she wakes up with them, she is usually ready to go to school by 10:00.  I hadn't seen my blog pals for several months, and I was pretty darned sure this tummy ache meant I was going to go longer because my meeting in Indy, 70+ miles away, started at 10:00....

Here's the important part of this guys!

Tall Guy said he would take care of Bear!!  Not only did he say that, but as I was upstairs scrambling to get ready, he hollered up the stairs and asked if I wanted eggs for breakfast!

WOW!  "Uhm...sure!"

"Do you want me to add cheese, tabasco sauce, and Onion Onion?"

Silence......."Yeah! That would be awesome!"

"Do you want me to make you some coffee?"

Speechless......"That would be great!"

"Mom! (Tink has now jumped on the 'I love Mom' party wagon) Dad wants to know where the cappuccino stuff is that you like in your coffee!"

I have now totally fallen in love all over again with my husband!

It doesn't take chocolates or a candle-lit dinner.  He knew how I liked my eggs and coffee!

Love you Tall Guy!
