Jessica Biel Just Opened Up About Silas' Latest, Groan-Worthy Phase
The celeb toddler has learned a couple of new phrases he loves to use -- and both basically mean, "No!"
While hitting up the Emmys red carpet on Sunday, September 17, Jessica Biel revealed that her 2-year-old son Silas Randall has hit a new milestone -- and it's definitely one that every mom of a toddler can relate to!
“Now, he’s saying to me, ‘No, no, Mommy! We are not gonna do this anymore,’ ” Biel explained. “And, ‘This is not a match’ — which means, ‘I don’t wanna do this.’" Ha!
Biel explained that the slightly eyebrow-raising "match" phrase likely comes "the matching game — one of these things are not like the other.”
Fair, fair. It's always heartening to know that your kid is coming into their own and learning to assert themselves, but at the same time, hearing your L.O. show just how strong their "no" game can be can definitely a groan-worthy parenting moment!

The 35-year-old mom, who welcomed Silas with Justin Timberlake in 2015, has been open about the challenges of juggling parenthood and her career. During an August appearance on Live with Kelly & Ryan she said, “It’s hard — trying to find a balance between work and family and just being an independent human." True. Clearly, she's doing her best, and unafraid to be real about it along the way.
