Stay-at-home Viking Dad, day two



I came home to find Elmo armed and guarding the fort. I swear, if Junior starts swigging Mead and playing the mandolin I will go ballistic. One Viking is enough. (Though Chuck does get extra stars for labeling things.)

Oh, who am I kidding? This made my week.

Where can I get my very own guard Elmo? How awesome was that. It looks like they are having a good time home together.

Guard Elmo can be rented on a daily basis for $9.99. If you'd like him to arrive wearing his medieval garb that's $5.99 extra. Chuck's like $16.99 but he comes with a fiddle!

So how is this unusual ;) My DH is a SAHD and is the same way (loves all things medieval, viking, etc.) so this seems totally normal in my house. Too bad you're too far away or they could get together and have swordplay-dates.

In defense of adoration—even in the deli line

The toddler was all over his mother. Cam and I were in line at the deli at Mulletville Lite's town grocery store, watching the lov...
