No fun daddy

My favorite exchange with my husband from today:

(as I am adding cookie ingredients to the Kitchen Aid mixer with Harlow in my arms)

M: Just let her throw in the walnuts.
C: No, you're making me nervous. I once met a guy who only had a thumb and a pinky. Put his hand in and ...(he makes a claw)
(He takes the baby from me)
M: A kitchen aid mixer did that?
C: A big industrial one.
M: There's no way this Kitchen Aid mixer could do that, on this speed. With a paddle.
C; Do I have to explain the laws of physics to you?
Harlow holds out a walnut to me from ten feet away.
M: Sorry baby. Daddy won't let you.
C: Right. I'm the no fun daddy. Because I want her to have fingers.

Freakin' hilarious. But it would be me, saying, "Madeline, you need to keep your hands away from the [insert death-trap appliance here]," and her reply: "Mom, look, I have pockets!!"
