The battle over the schedule

  • Please tell me that others deal with this! It's been a while since my husband and I disagreed over our family's schedule, but here we are again. In the past we've both agreed that the best time for me to work is in the morning. However, he likes to arrive 45 minutes early to work every day. He's a morning person and I most certainly am not. He's a teacher, and so it's understandable that he needs a few extra minutes to get ready before the students start streaming in. I want him to wait and arrive 15-20 minutes early so that I can get another half hour of work done. I guess he thinks that I should get up earlier (I get up at 6:15-6:30) if I want to get more done, and I think that he should be willing to stay a few minutes after school and go in just a few minutes early. It really is a small thing now that I have it written out, but we struggle over this issue a lot. What about at your house? Is everyone in agreement about how to time the morning routine?
