When mom left her husband, baby, and kid at home together, she didn’t expect to come home to this; the dad inside of the baby’s pen and the baby outside of it. It seems like the joke is on Mom and Dad this time. Perhaps the kid who took the photo wanted to show Dad who was the boss around there.
He didn’t feel that it was fair for the baby to be locked up inside the cage, and the second kid wanted to free the baby. So, he freed the baby and locked up his dad in the pen. By the look on the baby’s face, it seems like he was in on the plan as well.
While this dad was on the way to the kitchen to satisfy his sweet tooth, his fussy baby started crying. The dad looked at the kitchen and back at his baby, and once again at the kitchen and back at his baby. There was no way he was willing to veto the triple chocolate cake that his wife had just picked up from his favorite bakery.
So, he did what any nurturing dad would do; he cut himself a nice thick slice of decadent cake and grabbed his child to rock while eating. Well, turning the baby into a placeholder for his plate seemed to be the answer. “The only way my three-day-old daughter would fall asleep. After two hours of carrying her around, I got hungry,” he wrote.
If there's one thing that you need to know as a parent, it's that you shouldn't leave your child alone as long as they're able to walk. This can end in something seriously bad and even fatal. For that reason, there's something called a baby (or kid) leash keeping your child close at all times.
This Dad was obviously having a bad financial year. How else would you explain this improvisation? It doesn't look as if this kid is going anywhere. Also, Dad, next time, consider tying whatever makeshift leash you make around the kid's waist. You know, just so it's more of a leash and less of a noose.
Mom, I Decided to Put Dad to Sleep Early Today
We all know there are fewer things in life more exhausting than parenting, and this dad clearly couldn't take it anymore. The question is, how did he end up passing out inside the baby's crib? Did he just try to pick him up for the last feeding and keel over from exhaustion?
One thing is clear; this baby seems very understanding of the situation. It almost looks like he was just surprised by Mom and is trying to tell her, "give him a break, mommy, he tried his best." Just look at how his cute little hand is grabbing Dad's as if making sure he's soundly asleep.
Laziness at Its Worst
Though we do have to appreciate this dad's effort to make sure his baby doesn't miss the view, this is clearly not the right way to go about it. Think about it, just one slip and that stroller could roll right off the rails. And what's most shocking is that the mother doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong with this!
We get it; maybe this dad knew that taking him out of the stroller was a sure way for the baby to have a full-blown tantrum — something no parent is ever happy to deal with. Still, maybe just pick him up next time, Dad, like a normal person would do.
