One of Payton's favorite tricks is to sneak toys into his bed at night, and play with them rather than go to sleep. I don't have any photos, so I hope I can tell this story and do it justice.
Payton likes to sleep just in his jammie bottoms. I don't know where he got it from. So, he is wearing Lightening McQueen jammie shorts, and nothing else. Got a mental picture? OK, good. He's been put to bed about fifteen to twenty minutes earlier, book, prayers, kiss, hug, etc. He comes out from his bedroom, holding his crotch, the international sign for "I have to go potty." Ray tells him to go. (There are usually anywhere from three to eight potty trips each night before he falls asleep.) From where Ray is sitting, he can see Payton, but I can't.
Payton closes the bathroom door to go potty this time. An anomaly. He usually never closes the door. Hmmm, something's up. We hear Payton peeing, and the toilet flush. We wait for him to come out of the bathroom.....nothing. Remember, all he has to do is pull up his jammie shorts. Ray calls, "OK, Payton, get to bed." I didn't see what happened next, Ray told me this part.
The bathroom door opens, and Payton side-steps out, with his back to the living room. Still got a mental picture? Ray tells Payton to come here. Payton turns and walks into the living room.....with a large bulge in his shorts (not that, you sickos LOL). Ray asks Payton what is in his shorts.
Payton pulls his newest Transformer out of his shorts, and hands it to Ray. In a completely serious voice, Payton says "I was just bringing this to you, Dad. And it's wet." (cuz he'd been playing with it in his bath earlier. Sickos!) Ray's trying hard not to bust up, and I'm not doing very well holding in my laughter either. It was so funny! Ray sent Payton to bed, and we both lost it! Maybe you had to be there. But kids say and do the darnedest things, don't they?
