I agree with 1#. The Dad does sound stupid. I hate when people start stories with 'I asked my husband/boyfriend to watch our child...' Um, he's not the babysitter. Does he ask you to watch your kids when he goes out? Or is it just assumed that as an adult and a parent it is part of your responsibility to care for your own kid? I'm not saying the father did anything horribly wrong, but it should not be put down to 'goofy dad makes quirky mistake'. He sounds like he doesn't have much experience watching his own kid which is a huge problem.
76- I think it's a bit harsh to say he's stupid or even irresponsible. It's not like he left the kid at home alone to go buy drugs; he just fell asleep. When I was a kid, my dad fell asleep all the time. I got into some mischief, but I wouldn't say he was a bad dad. Just sleepy.
I agree with you there 81. My parents were divorced and my dad was working 2 jobs to stay on his feet, but we'd spend weekends with him. He often fell asleep in the middle of the day and my brother and I got into everything. A couple examples being my brother electrocuting himself and my mom walking in one day as I was tearing up my mattress with kitchen knives. Best parenting? Definitely not. Irresponsible, kinda.. but he was working his ass off so he could afford to see his kids. Taking a nap doesn't make you a bad parent, and it definitely does not make you stupid. My brother and I are still alive and well... even with the tiny scars on our lips from when we tried to shave while my dad was asleep.
"Or is it just assumed that as an adult and a parent, it is part of your responsibility to care for your own kid?" Uuummm... YEAH! It IS your responsibility, as a parent, to care for your own kid. Dimwit! I'm not saying, by any means at all, that the dad is stupid for taking a nap. Parents take naps. It's a given. It WILL happen. They don't happen when you want them to, most of the time... But they'll happen. Dad was probably tired from working or something. It's not the end of the world. At least, the kid didn't do too much damage. The point of my comment was to point out the most stupid thing I've ever seen on the Internet. Which is, it is, in fact, YOUR responsibility, as a parent, to care for YOUR kid. OP, take it easy on the Hubby. He didn't intentionally fall asleep. Accidents happen. He, probably, learned a lesson from this one and will be more cautious of when he takes his naps. Good luck, OP! :)
If the point of your comment referred to 76 saying "Or is it just assumed that as an adult and a parent it is part of your responsibility to care for your own kid?" he/she was saying it IS the dads responsibility.. Don't get your panties in a twist. Though I disagree with calling the dad stupid..
Since the fish are already cleaned, may as well have your husband make dinner. Fish, anyone?
Wow thats pretty irresponsible, but kids WILL be kids I guess. But enjoy your daughter while she's young:) all the goofy thigs she does
That's incredibly irresponsible of him. What if she had gotten hurt or worse? A young child must always be watched during the daytime.
Eh.. kids get hurt even with parents keeping a keen eye. I cite an example from my younger brothers youth as he sat on a countertop at 4 years old surrounded by my mother, my older brother (12) and me (11). He somehow managed to dive head first off the counter and hit the floor. We still have no idea what he was desperately trying to escape from.
in her defense, maybe they were dirty. she was just trying to help, mom
