You know your almost 4 year old watches way too much TV when he starts saying things like this:
- “God help that chipmunk” – said with all seriousness during a scene in Alvin and the Chipmunks where one gets stuck in a wild remote controlled car. He has no idea what that phrase means.
- “The suspense is killing me” – for no reason at all, just his echolalia (repeating or parroting often associated with Autism) acting up again.
Or my personal favorite, when he walks by you having a conversation with himself, using 2 different voices:
- “Complicated, what do you mean complicated (with arms stretched out). You know, complicated!” And then an awkward giggle. It must have been a show for older kids.
That’s right, another mother of the year award for me. Tomorrow we will cut down on TV time, I swear.
