Spiderman, Spiderman, Does Whatever a Spider Can...

except, apparently, GLOW IN THE DARK.

Another Blog from the Family Holiday archives; This one finds us at my Parent's house post-Christmas dinner with the adults itching for the kids to go to bed so we could enjoy some good, quality Adult Time, (i.e. play some cards and drink more beer.)

My almost-4 nephew Kyle came downstairs with his PJs on exclaiming how his Spidey PJs glowed in the dark and I needed to come see. "Oh, OK!" I said, knowing full well a trip upstairs could result in a long time before I returned to Adult Land; "Let's check them out in HERE" and pushed him into a little half bathroom off the dining room. Of course his sister Taylor followed calling "GRAM! Come see!", and I had to grab my husband, 'Uncle' Kenny, and then my Great-Aunt Bunny was walking by so I pulled her in for good measure and we all piled in to the bathroom, shut the door and blew out the candle only to behold... NOTHING. And there were me, Kenny, my Mom, Kyle, Taylor and Bunny trapped in the dark in like a 2x3 foot bathroom trying to find the light switch. I guess Kyle got his PJs mixed up! Needless to say a Meltdown ensued but still, a good time was had by all.
