sometimes he's so dumb he makes me laugh

Chris was giving Elizabeth a bath for me on Sunday. He rarely does this because usually she's already had one or more by the time he gets home in the evenings... But on Sunday, she wasn't feeling good and since it was mother's day, I was *supposed* to have the day off...lol. He puts her in the bathtub and after a little while, she calls me in there. And she's ready to get out. He was sitting on the side of the tub and I casually asked if he had washed her hair... He gets the deer in the headlights look and said: "I'm scared to wash her hair. She was so good for the bath that I didn't want to upset her."... I was cracking up. She used to hate having her hair washed, the water running over her head would send her into screaming fits, but she's gotten over that and now she enjoys it. She picked up the shampoo bottle and said: "Wash my hair daddy"... and he looked like someone had just asked him to cut off his arm... :-/ I offered to do it and he said no I'll do it so I started to walk out of the bathroom when he goes: "Can you stay in here... just in case....?"

I know it was a "you had to be there" kind of moment but it struck me funny. Big bad man afraid of washing his daughter's hair because she might scream... :p
