-One day he came up to me and said "Hey mom! you wanna see my pecker?"  mortified and hoping he actually said 'cracker' or something else that sounded like 'pecker' I said "what?" he replied "you wanna see my pecker"  shocked, I knew I heard what I had heard.  I turn around to hopefully not see what he wanted to show me.  He had made a paper airplane and colored it to look like a woodpecker, a darn good one too!  He was showing me how it was 'so cool' that the tip of airplane made such a great 'pecker' lol.  I informed him that its actually called a 'beak.'

-likes to use my phone to "call her mom"
