As two working parents we have to be creative to get time together. We have made a habit of getting up extra early once a week (this means packing lunches the night before, not blowdrying my hair and having outfits ready to go). Theo watches the trucks go by in the window and we have coffee and croissants. It is the best start to the day and usually resets me when I am really missing Theo mid-week. A benefit of city living is great coffee shops are a couple blocks in every direction. So grateful to get my cappuccino in a cup and have a conversation with my husband and toddler before work.
