Daddy blogger Matt Coyne (you may remember him from his viral Facebook post about traveling with a baby) had some fun while driving his partner Lyns crazy after she reluctantly returned to work after maternity leave, putting Coyne in charge of their son Charlie. On May 6, he posted a picture of his text conversation with Lyns over the day, as she tried in vain to get one serious response from him about how the baby was doing.
The text accompanying the photos reads:
Tough week. Charlie's mum's maternity leave ended. So the person in our house who prevents fires etc. returned to work.. Whilst I found myself looking after our little boy properly on my own..
Its true to say that as Lyns walked out the door that first morning there was quite a few tears, sobbing, and protest-soiling.. but, in my defence, by lunchtime I had calmed down a bit.
Anyway, to alleviate Lyns' concerns about leaving Charlie in the care of a f*ckwit, I promised to keep in touch...
He was kind enough to include pictures of Charlie with the updates, so that Lyns would know her young son was fine, while he was drinking beer, hanging out at a strip club, going skydiving, and being shot out of a cannon. Just a typical day with baby, no big deal.
At least the photos provided Lyns with some evidence that the baby was not trapped in a well somewhere while daddy worked on Photoshop. Good grief.
