Daddy Day Camp

Hubby is a stay at home dad.

Last summer Lael went to a summer camp that ended badly.

They took her to a go-cart racing place (without my knowledge) and as a result of that received a 2nd degree burn to her hand.

This year we smartened up and decided to save money by just letting Lael stay with dad. I’ve signed her up for swim lessons and when she’s not swimming she is with her grandmother or out doing other fun things.

But there have been a few days when they hang out at home all day.

This scares me for a few reasons.

1. My husband LOVES his Xbox and when he’s playing he can be oblivious to things going on around him (not good with a 5 year old in the house)
2. See reason #1

Tuesday was one of those stay-at-home-and-do-nothing-all-day type of days.

I came home and everything seemed fine. I took Lael to the pool for an hour or so. When we got back she hopped in the shower and I went into the kitchen.

This is what I saw on the counter.

He claims that he was watching her closely until I called and it happened while we were talking.

Yeah, he said it’s my fault because he would have been watching her had he not have to turn around to answer the phone.



  1. My hubby would have claimed the same thing. Hopefully a litte super glue can fix Cinderella!!

  2. Oh no! Poor, poor Cinderella. She looks like she had a rough go of it.

  3. Oh, that is totally something my husband would come up with.

  4. Clever, that one.

    I get nervous too. Nothing like a teenager and a 6 year old hanging out all day. Luckily, my husband pops in and out during the day so they're always on their toes.

  5. Poor Cinderella! She was so beautiful. I say you ground him! ;)

  6. We've had several Cinderellas lose their heads. I think they make her neck unrealistically long. You know, to offset her realistic bust and waist.

  7. Poor Cindy...too bad you called. ;)

  8. The best thing about being a stay-at-home dad is having the freedom to do what you want with your time. You can spend time with your kids and do other activities.
