Brett Young’s Daughter is Keeping Him On His Toes: “They’re Listening All the Time.”

Brett Young’s daughters are two and a half years old and nine months old, but some of the things his oldest daughter Presley says, make him think she’s a lot older than she is. 

Brett told his record label, “Presley started talking kind of early, so we’re full sentences, and she’s starting to say things like, she’ll finish a sentence, you think, and then she’ll go, ‘Oh, and also…’ And then she’ll say something else. And it’s like, ‘oh and also?’ Where are you getting this stuff?”

Like every parent, Brett is learning that kids hear everything and often repeat what they hear. “You realize what a sponge they are,” says Brett. “It’s not something that we taught them, it’s something that they overheard and that they are putting into practice already. And she’ll do stuff like that all the time.”

Another thing Presley says that just kills Brett, he says, “In the morning, she gets her screen time, quote, unquote.  In the morning when she first wakes up, like both me and my wife, she wakes up kind of slow.  So, most of the time we’ll say, you know, ‘Do you wanna watch your cartoons in bed or do you want to go downstairs?’ And she’ll say, ‘You know, I was in here all night. Why don’t we watch it downstairs?’ Or she’ll say things like, ‘Downstairs, that would be a good idea.’ And I’m like, who are you? You’re two. You sound like a 10-year-old.”

Presley’s vocabulary and speech patterns crack Brett up a lot, and he says, “It’s really fun and it makes you hyper-aware of the things you say around them cause they’re listening all the time.”

Presley has also started listening to Daddy’s music. He shared an adorable video of her in the car recently when Daddy’s song came on.
