Mum leaves baby alone with dad for one night... and it's complete disaster

One dad learned the hard way that parenting is never easy... especially when your wife is gone. 

Ben Patterson was supposed to watch the children so his wife could go out with some friends after work. 

However, projectile vomit occurred. 

In a post dated May 14, he shared the series of texts to his wife on Facebook.

What made matters worse is that his wife was not answering her phone. 

The Internet laughed out loud at his misfortune, and were quick to point out that it says 'Read' at the bottom of the twenty or so texts -- but still no reply from his wife.
