Spencer today:

"I can't wait until I get to be a comet or an asteroid in church and not just a sunbeam or a star."

Seven years equals seven days to a five year old

All of Spencer's life we've been telling him that he can have gum when he's five years old. Last Saturday he turned five. We also went to Six Flags last Saturday, and to get discount tickets, we had to bring in a pack of Stride gum. So, upon purchasing the gum, Spencer reminded us that since he's five now, he can have gum. We decided to let him try it, warning him about the ill effects of swallowing it, telling him that if he did, it would take seven years to digest and poop out. After a few minutes of loud chomping, there was silence, followed shortly by Spencer saying, "Mom, I did something on accident."

After that we told him he had to wait a few days before having more gum. Today in the car he said,
"Mom, I pooped out the gum that I swallowed. Can I have some more?"
