Watch the zipper

I would like to retract yesterday's post.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say my son is dumb. He is very intelligent. But after the stunt he pulled, I really have to question where his mind is sometimes.


Just like I do every night before I go to bed, I check on the kids. I have been doing this since GG first came home from the hospital. I can't sleep until I perform this nightly ritual.

I tip-toed in to check on GG. I covered her, gave her a kiss, and turned off her lamp and radio. I made a quick pit stop and then went to check on Little Dude.


He chose to wear footie pajamas to bed. The first thing I noticed was that he unzipped them. It's not the first time and let's be honest, he's a boy Boys sometimes have an aversion to clothing.

I went to zip his jammies before I covered him, but there was a problem. I couldn't zip his jammies because his underwear were in the way. Somehow he pulled his feet out of his jammies, removed his underwear, placed them back on over top of his jammies, then put his feet back in.


I pulled his Spidermans off and gently began to tug his feet out of his jammies. Since he was free as a bird under those jammies, There's Something About Mary started playing in my head. If you've seen the movie I'm sure you already know the scene I'm referring to. The one where Ted zips himself while getting ready to take Mary to the prom? Ya, that one.

I really wasn't in the mood for a hospital, but thankfully I managed to redress him without any major incidents. But seriously? What was he thinking!?


Until next time....

I swear to you your son could pass for one of mine. Mine would do crazy stuff in their sleep and so does their daddy. Leaving me going do what??

I'm sure he wasn't thinking anything but comfort, and half-hazzardly achieved it during a state of unconsciousness.

I thought your post was just fine. Children amaze me on what they do. I bet your son was not ready to sleep and started playing around and fell asleep. Have a wonderful day!

That is so funny! My boys don't understand why they need to wear underwear with footie pjs. Um, OUCH!
