Home Alone: Where Are the Salem Children of Days of our Lives?

Has Salem become Lord of the Flies?

Days of our Lives Where Are the Children

We know who is watching some of the children on Days of our Lives. We presume Charlotte DiMera and Thomas DiMera are with the same nanny who kept whisking them out of the room whenever Mommy Abigail Deveraux DiMera and Daddy Chad DiMera were bored with the whole parenting thing.

Days of our Lives: What About The Children?

And Nicole Walker Hernandez (Arianne Zucker) does mention daughter Holly (Elin Alexander) once in a while, plus, we know stepfather Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) can always be counted on for some pick-up babysitting. But there are still some tots unaccounted for, and we’d like some answers, please.

DOOL: Cross Country

Where is Arianna Horton? When Will Horton (Chandler Massey) told Sonny Kiriakis (Zach Tinker) he had to go on a business trip to meet with some psychic dogs (was that not what he said?), Sonny encouraged him to go and assured him that he and Ari would come for a visit. So Ari is with Sonny in Salem? Ari is in Salem, but she’s living with her stepfather and not her mother, Gabi Hernandez DiMera (Camila Banus)? Huh?

We know Gabi is quite busy these days, but we also know that she always – always! – makes time for her little girl. We assumed that if Ari wasn’t with Gabi in Salem, she was in Arizona with Will. But if Will is in Salem and about to go on a trip to California…is Ari in Arizona alone?! What is going on here?

Days of our Lives: Extra Hands

And while we’re on the subject, where is Henry? His mom, Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold), lives and works with girlfriend Chanel Dupree (Raven Bowens). Which means neither one is home with Henry. Uncle Tripp Johnson (Lucas Adams) used to be great to babysit in a pinch, but ever since Allie dumped him for Chanel, he isn’t around anymore. Does Thomas and Charlotte’s nanny swing by to pick up an extra charge?

DAYS: Invisible Boy

Finally, there’s Parker Lane. Whenever Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) needed to ship him off, Grandma and Grandpa Craig Wesley (Kevin Spirtas) and Nancy Miller (Patrika Darbo) were always there to pick up the slack. But Nana and Pop-Pop are definitely not with Parker these days. And Chloe is awfully focused on Rachel Black (Finley Rose Slater). So we have to ask: Who is minding Parker? (Or is he a teen in boarding school?)
