Paybacks

I suppose it was my turn.  I believe in karma and truly, what you put out there comes back at you.

Back when Jason and I first got married, I used to hide around the apartment when he least expected it and jump out and scare the crap out of him.  I still laugh about a few of the times.  I got him pretty good.   But in the years since children that has waned in lieu of more serious activities such as child rearing.  Honestly, I just don't have the time to even think about it anymore!

But Bryce proved to me yesterday he's got my genes!

I went upstairs to change after work and went into the bathroom.  I thought I'd heard someone following me up the steps as I went into the bathroom, which is pretty par for the course since often I'll RUN up the steps as fast as I can so I can make it into the bathroom before I am followed in.  When I came out though, all was quiet.  Thankful for a moment's peace, I went into my closet and grabbed some shorts and a t-shirt.  Again, I thought I'd heard something but figured it was just me knocking into something.

I walked out of the closet and just a few feet from the door I hear, "BOOOOO!!"

I screamed!  And there was Bryce standing behind me in the closet doorway laughing hysterically.  He got me!!!  I started laughing so hard I had to lay on the floor.  I think for a minute he was scared that he was in trouble or something but when he saw how hard I was laughing I could tell he was quite proud of himself.

He had a good little hiding spot in our closet it seems and did a bang up job of keeping quiet.  This is actually kind of a big deal for him as he's had problems playing hide and seek in that he can't stay quiet or keep hidden for long enough.  I think he's got a bright future ahead of him in that game!

When I stopped laughing I told him the story of how I used to scare daddy - he got a kick out of that.  Like mother, like son.  I better watch my back because now that he knows he can do it, he's bound to do it again. Maybe it's time I get back in on the hiding game.  Jason?
