Tonight, after taking his shower and getting his pj's on, AJ, without socks on, reveals to me the following:
AJ: Dad, do you know why I always want to sleep with my socks on?
Me: No, AJ, I don't. Why?
AJ: Because I'm afraid that you or Mommy might sneak into my room at night and try to cut my toenails.
Me: Well, what would you say if I told you that one night, I came into your room with a flashlight and took off your sock and clipped your toenails?
AJ: Ha! No way, Dad. You don't have a flashlight.
Looks like the kid was smarter than me . . . he was wearing socks long before I took up my covert-ops mission!
