J’s alarm used to go off at 4:40am. This isn’t great for any of the parties involved. I mean, not great for J, he’s the one getting up at 4:40am, and not great for me because I usually wake around mid-night to feed E, and then again any time between 4 and 5. This means that I either get woken by J before I need to wake up for E’s feed, or a stay away waiting for his alarm to go off.
You might ask, “why the hell does any one get up that early to go to work?”, and if you are, well don’t worry, I often ask the same thing. You see, he hates traffic and when you drive an hour and 10 minutes on a good run to get to work, you avoid peak hour in any way you can. So for him, this means getting up super early, arriving at work pretty early, but then getting to leave early-ish, missing the evening peak hour and arriving home with enough time to go for a ride, a paddle or just hang out with his beautiful family.
So I wanted to delay that alarm a little, and see if we couldn’t make it just a little bit later. So I started making him these breakfast muffins. I’d make some savoury and something healthy and sweet-ish, he grabs them out of the freezer at night, and puts them in his work bag, then he eats them in the car on the way to work. It’s way better for him than the piece of toast he used to make and way quicker too, we all win!
Now his alarm goes off at 4:50am.
