That might not sound as good to you as it does to me. But you see, at the age of seven, Charlie is only just learning to talk. Like your 18 month old or 2 year old might be learning. He's saying words with purpose. It's fairly amazing.
The other night, he was banging something on something else, and I said "Charlie STOP IT!"
And I got the TEENAGE EYE ROLL and with attitude "SHUT UP!"
I had to turn my back to keep from laughing. Yeah, my kid told me to shut up. He also used WORDS correctly. So I'll take it.
Good job, Charlie.
