Having established that John doesn't know he's actually supposed to supervise the kids, has no idea where anything in his house is and can't cook food they'd eat, it seems to me that the next thing he'll botch is the housework. Perhaps he'll let the washing machine overflow or shrink clothing or something.

Actually, we have him outwitting the holy living crap out of his petulant moron of a son.

Panel 1: It's late in the day and John tells Mike to put his pajamas on; Mike declares that he wants to sleep in his clothes.

Panel 2: John repeats his request; Mike refuses on the grounds that his way would mean he wouldn't have to get dressed in the morning.

Panel 3: John hands them over and says to put them on; Mike says NO!! and asks John to give him one good reason.

Panel 4: John points out that there isn't actually a good reason. The world wouldn't end if he slept in his clothes. Granted, he'd be hot, uncomfrtable, would itch like mad and possibly soil himself over night because his bladder isn't fully mature; that being said, he sees no problem with Mike sleeping in his clothes.

Panel 5: This causes Mike, who's being depicted as being contrary-minded for its own sake, to want to wear his pajamas now.

Summary: I don't see why Lynn's so hepped up to have grandchildren; we just know she's going to misinterpret their behavior too. Despite what we see here, children usually have a reason for being defiant.
