My son is strange

Charlie has started to be more interested in interacting with us all. As such, he has decided all interactions should involve him. He regularly tells someone to stop talking to someone else.

In the car yesterday, I was talking to Crash, and Charlie started with "Stop talking to Daddy." I told him he had to wait until we finished before I would talk to him and we duly finished our conversation.

After a short pause we heard "Are you finished?". "Yes, Charlie, we're finished, what did you want to say." "I said it." And that was it. Have we told him he's strange today?


  1. This sounds familiar...well, the first half anyway. We used to get into trouble for having conversations in the car that weren't about kid stuff too. But my lot usually had a bit more to say once we'd finished.

    What I like about this story is that even though he'd said what he wanted to he still made sure to check that you guys had finished talking. Perhaps he was just checking whether you'd obeyed his decree!

  2. Yeah, there's a lot of bossiness going around here too. When one of us appears on the scene we are greeted with "NOOOOOOOOOO".
