Midnight Surprise

Dad! Why are you telling them this!!

The bathroom light turned on at 1:48 a.m.. I know because my wife told me so. One minute later, I jumped up to the sound of a deluge. I ran down the hallway and made a quick left hand turn into the bathroom (Not unlike our country's recent shift). There standing in front of a closed toilet was my six year old son, my pride and joy, eyes closed, releasing a torrent. The stream ricocheted off the lid onto the wall and back into the poor boy's face. At this point, he awoke and began complaining about being wet. I cleaned him up, returned the sleepy-head to bed, and wondered if my wife would notice if I left the mess until the morning. The paint is yellow after all.

What would you have done?
