He's How Old?

Jackson seems to be on this kick where he thinks he's much bigger than he really is. This has got to be what it feels like to raise a teenager, minus the hormones and drivers license. Not only does Jackson try to convince us on a daily basis that he's actually 5 years old already, he does it with this indignant head nodding and this whiney, "Uh-huh....I really am 5 already" catchphrase.

I know you know what I'm talking about.

Other things we've heard around our house lately:

"I'm not going to call you Mom anymore. I'm going to call you Amy."

and...

"You are not my friend anymore because you won't let me have some more candy and I want some candy so we aren't friends anymore."

and..

"But I told you that I would clean up my room IN A MINUTE!" (that one earned him a spanking)

and..

"But Mommy, you are a better hair-washer than Daddy. Daddy just pours the water all in my face and I don't like it one little bit!"

and finally...

"How many times are you going to ask me that? I already told you yesterday that I had a good day at school. You don't have to ask me that everyday!"

I can only imagine what he'll be like when he's actually a teenager. I better hold on!
