Eric Christian Olsen tells PEOPLE that watching his son go through the terrible twos is “the best thing ever.”
“He has understanding and communication,” the NCIS: Los Angeles star, 38, said Friday at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California.
Son Wyatt Oliver is now at the stage where he’s learning how to say the same thing in different ways, Olsen said: “We just say, ‘Start again,’ and he stops and says, ‘Can I do this please?’ He’s such a little human.”
A little human with a lot of personality and a lengthy to-do list.
“He gets up in the morning and bangs on my shoulder,” Olsen said. “‘Dada, swim, tiger-shark, breakfast, omelet, pineapple,’ and you’re like, ‘That’s a lot to process. It’s 5:30 a.m. Can we go back to bed?’ ”
