A stay-at-home dad has published this Instagram account of his baby daughter doing insanely crazy things to wind up her mum while she is at work.
Kenny Deuss, from Antwerp in the northern Belgium province of the same name, got the idea to make the Instagram page @onadventurewithdad because his partner always asked him to send photos of their daughter to show that she was safe when she was at work.
Instead, Deuss used 18-month-old Alix as the protagonist of his online pranks to wind up his partner.
Kenny said: “When we had our daughter and my girlfriend had to go back to work, she messaged me all the time to send photos so she knew Alix was safe. Then I decided to make something fun out of it. I always photographed our daughter in different dangerous situations.”
The series of funny images show the toddler holding a drill, putting her hand in a plug socket, working with a circular saw, walking on a tight-rope across a ravine, climbing into the fridge, and holding a rifle.
Kenny shared the photos on Instagram with the disclaimer: “To be clear, all photos have been edited.”
Kenny is responsible for organising concerts and other activities for a local youth centre, but as he does not have much work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he decided to take up a Photoshop course.
Kenny said. “My partner thinks it’s brilliant. The first time she probably doubted whether it was real or not. Usually, I take the photos in such a way that it is just a bit too over-the-top. But it is the intention that makes you have doubts.
“I now take a picture every week. In many photos, I just hold Alix and then chop myself off. Then I add a specific background to create a dangerous situation.”
