    Daddy Daycare

    Friday, August 31 2007
    Steve takes care of Pocket - alone, Shawn finds a new career and Benjy wakes up!


    Philip finishes arranging the Tulsa travel plans, and he and Belle get their story straight, for the shelter. Belle says she has dropped Claire off at daycare but didn't tell Shawn she was going away. She pulls her hand away from where it was resting, on Phil's hand, and says she has to go tell Shawn about their plans. Phil agrees to pick her up at the Bradys.



    At the Brady home, Shawn goes through boxes full of tools. Hope tells him she hopes that Max gets through his issues okay. She finds Shawn to be very positive about the future, and asks what he plans next. Shawn admits he wants to become a cop but hasn't told Belle any of this yet. Hope worries about losing him, especially after losing one son already. Shawn reminds her that she has put herself in danger in the past and he isn't going to back down. Hope reminisces about the first time Shawn crossed the street and when he got his driver's license. She finally gives her blessing and he asks to pave the way for Bo. Shawn says he wants to apply to the academy before Belle finds out he doesn't have a job! Hope asks him to tell Belle the truth, and Shawn agrees to do so tonight.



    At the inn, Steve is on the phone to Bo about their sting operation when Kayla interrupts with Pocket. She's worried about Steve's involvement with the operation but has to head to head to the hospital to see Benjy. She wants to leave Pocket with Steve. Steve's nervous, but she thinks he'll be fine and says it's a basic "FBBDN". Steve asks what that means and she lists, feeding, bathing, burping, diapering, and napping! Kayla takes off, and Steve talks to Pocket and tells the boy they don't need girls around. Suddenly the baby starts crying, and Steve panics.



    Kayla arrives at Benjy's side in the hospital, where Lexi sits and waits for him to wake. She asks for the best care possible from Kayla and wishes she was still a practicing physician. Kayla promises to use her expertise to help Benjy. Lexi says Benjy has already had one miracle, meeting Kayla and Steve, and thinks they'll do a great job with Pocket too. "If we can get through the first day of "daddy daycare"," she says. Lexi laughs and remembers the first time she let Abe stay with Isaac. Kayla says it must have been hard on her to have to give up Isaac when she found out he was Bo and Hope's. Lexi agrees it was horrible, but she hopes things work out with Steve, Kayla and Pocket. Lexi says that Benjy still talks about the night that Kayla and Steve found him on their honeymoon and says Steve had always made him feel safe. Later, Kayla admits she almost pulled the plug on Stefano in Tuscany and is already at that same point. She promises that if Benjy doesn't make it, Stefano will be next. Lexi commiserates.



    Steve is near exhaustion, after he tries to get Pocket to stop crying. He plays the harmonica, plays with hand puppets and when he moves in to check the little guy's diaper, Pocket spits up all over his face!



    Belle arrives at the Brady home with kisses for Shawn. He has made plans for them to go out to dinner, but she tells him she's going to Tulsa, and asks for a rain check. She explains she and Philip's plan and when Shawn questions why Billie couldn't have gone instead of her, Belle says that Billie is setting up a security system at the University and can't make it. Belle reassures him that it'll be fine, and when Phil comes to the door, Belle goes off to grab her bag. Shawn warns Phil that he's on to him! He says this is the last time he'll let Belle get mixed up in his business. Belle returns and has a passionate kiss for Shawn, before she runs out the door. Before Philip leaves, he reminds Shawn that he and Belle aren't married yet! It comes off as a warning.



    Hope pounds on Steve's door. He hurries her in and tells her Pocket has been crying since Kayla left. The house is a mess, but Steve feels he has done all the right things. Hope soon finds out that Pocket's simply hungry, after not having been fed for two hours. Hope says Pocket's probably hungry. She tells Steve that babies have little tummies! After Steve feeds Pocket, the little man calms down. She asks how they ended up fostering Pocket, and he says Kayla fell in love with Pocket at first site! Steve thinks he should be named Sonny or something and tells the kid that as soon as his parents are back, he'll be going home. Hope asks how he'd feel to adopt the little guy, and Steve asks if she really thinks he is cut out for this 'daddy gig'. She does, and thinks his old instincts are still there. He says he agreed to this for Kayla, but thinks that if this was some sort of test, he has flunked! "Hardly," Hope says, and tells him he knows more than he gives himself credit for! Steve grins and thanks Hope, planting a kiss on her cheek! They start cleaning the mess.



    At the hospital, Lexi tells Kayla that she lives in fear from Andre. She says Santo's demand for revenge has tainted their family and she worries for Theo's future. Benjy wakes up and is told what happened, and that the he has an infection from the unsterilized instruments used on him to remove part of his kidney.



    Kayla arrives home, gives Steve a big hug and tells him that Benjy's awake! Steve tells her that she is the reason why Benjy's doing well. He tells her everything is under control with Pocket, and she's impressed. "Wait until you see my second act," he says and gives her a kiss. Kayla is thankful that he did this for her. She says more than ever, she wants to raise a baby with him.


    Hope arrives home and Shawn says Ciara's still asleep. Hope says Pocket has Steve wrapped around his finger. She notices Shawn's mood and asks what's up. Shawn is upset as he explains that Belle went with Philip to Tulsa to find Tyler. Hope asks him to trust that Belle won't give in to Philip.


    Next on Days Of Our Lives:

    Kayla says, "I could kill him in cold blood because of what he did to you." Steve says, "There's the motive!" He says that he has more motive to kill Stefano than anyone!!"

    Bo says to Tony, "I need Stefano here, in the hospital. Can you help me?" Tony asks why, and Bo says, "I'm gonna kill him!"

    Stefano says, "I want you, Tony, to carry on the DiMera legacy." Tony replies, "It would be an honor… Father."

    Shawn better watch out Philip is out to get Belle back and she is just encouraging him by going with him. As for Steve, well I hope he doesn't get too attached to the baby, we all know that is Tyler Kiriakis.

    Behind Belle's back Shawn verbally attacks Phillip about taking her with him to find Tyler. He is not man enough to vice his objections to Belle but antagonizes Phillip every chance he gets. It was not Phillip's idea to ask Belle to go with him. As a matter of fact he wanted Billy to go with him and asked her more than once if she could do it. Shawn still does not treat Belle as a partner, not even telling her about the garage closing. Now he wants to be a cop. He has a record. Are we suppose to forget about that?

    I thought it was John and the kidney and Benji and the Liver. Didn't Benji have part of his liver taken for Stephano? How is it that Dr. Rolf can practice surgery/medicine at University Hospital? Does he have staff privileges? I thought he was sort of a renegade. I hate having to wait until Tuesday for the next episode...
