On occasion, Jackson will ask Troy or I for gum if he sees that we have some. We simply reply that he isn't old enough yet and that he can have it when he grows up a bit. So, the other day, Jackson walked into the kitchen and exclaimed, "Mommy, I grow up so fast!" I replied, "Yes, you sure have!" With that, he asked, "Can I have some gum?" Clever kid. Almost too clever.
