Dads Can Be So Dumb

Copied from my MySpace blog. Originally posted August 18, 2006.

It's time for me to admit it. Daddies don't make the decisions. We do what the Mommies tell us to.

For instance, as a stay-at-home Dad, I still have to rely on my wife's input to get through the day. I am thinking of having her take pictures of our son in every possible combination of clothes, so that I can use it as a reference when dressing him.

OK, so these shorts are clean. What shirt goes with them? According to the pictures, it's either this one or this one.

That way I can avoid that look. You know the one. It says "I can't tell which of you is cuter: you sitting there wearing those clothes; or your Daddy for thinking it was ok to dress you in them."

I hate that look. Especially at the end of the day, when Mrs. Lloyd gets home from work and our son has been dressed like that all day, and we've been out shopping or something.

I witnessed another example of the Daddy doing what he is told last Friday, at Pearson Airport in Toronto. Mind you, it was 5:00 AM so the father's brain was probably still sleeping, but it was pretty funny. It went like this:

SETTING: At the snack bar, just inside the security checkpoint at Terminal 3

Daddy: Ok, what do you guys want? Mommy said that you can't have sweets, only muffins or croissants.

Kid: I want an apple.

Daddy: NO! Mommy said only a muffin or a croissant because she doesn't want you eating too many sweets so early! So, what do you want? They've got chocolate chip muffins or chocolate croissants. Pick one.

THE END

Stupid yukky nutritious chocolate.

HAHAHA! lol i have a 4month and daddy always asks me something like that...does this hat go with the outfit or what....but the biggest thing for me was...the bottles and nipples...he would use different caps for the wrong bottle and i had them ORGINIZED NOW! with the correct bottle inback of the corresponding nibble...it took me a month to get him to understand that i want the bottles to be color cornated! LOL now he just lets me make the bottle for him to feed her!

An apple would tide the hunger, my father used to say. . .WAIT. . .My father still says it, and when I am alone with him or in public I am still the young boy learning the basics of old fashioned nutrition.

Oh yeah, most of us moms know that "look" and know it well. The picture idea is a good one. Might have to try it on my husband for our 2 year old while I'm still out of commission...hmmmmm. As for the eye witness you were able to enjoy at the airport, technically, the father stuck exactly to the rules LOL That mom will learn, you MUST be specific when speaking to daddy :)
