Daddy vs. Lila: the sword-fight edition

And now for the first installment of what we hope will be a reoccurring segment on MW4tAK:

The Difference Between Mommy and Daddy

Difference #1: When Mommy disappears in Target with Lila, she can always be found in the kids' section holding up cute little dresses to Baby Girl. When Daddy disappears in Target with Lila, he's in the dollar section teaching the kiddo the art of fencing:
Don't hold it by the blade, Baby Girl! That makes Mommy nervous!

I really should have learned by now that if I insist on dragging the Husband shopping with me, he will insist on entertaining himself with whatever is at hand. I should have recognized the foreshadowing in this picture I snapped just days before Lila was born:
No self-respecting knight goes into battle without his elephant hat.
