Frankly, we are all happier if he isn't around for the morning routine. He's a perky morning person and DD and I aren't so we like to wake up slowly. He goes out and gets me a coffee before he leaves and that's the best thing he could do for our routine
We get plenty of quality time as a family and he loves what he does so it works really well. If he hated it or I wasn't coping we'd rejig.
