You don't know Jack (#8)

Like all toddlers, Jackson provides the occasional nuggets of observation or wisdom or humor. These are generally unprompted, often silly or nonsensical, and usually come out of the blue with no context.

The kid seems to be feeling quite full of himself. Here are some recent ones:

Narcissus meets his reflection
 Fancy meeting you here, Narcissus.

•     "You know, Dad, it's much quieter around here without all of Mommy's talking."

•     "Next year, can we go on X Factor? I want to sing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. They would like that."

•     On eating: "I think I'm the slowest boy in the whole world." It sometimes feels like that, kid.

•     "Mommy, you and I need a long time before we reach Daddy's age. A long, long, long, long, long, long, long time."

•     "I'm much more excited about having a baby than you guys are!"

Waiting for mom and dad at Abbotsford
Why are mom and dad so slow?

•     To Kate: "I know much, much more than you. And I am more advanced than you. And my memory is far better than yours."

•     "I bet my great, great, great grandfather was the 'Star of the Week' at school."

•     "Mom, your bum is too big for this seat." Well, it does happen to be a toddler seat, you little bastard.

•     "I may still be little, but I have BIG plans."

•     "Hey, dad, do you like toots? Do you? Do you? Guess what . . . "

"Daddy, can I grow up to be a superhero?" Of course you can, dear.
