We have been working with Pookie on a few scripted answers to common questions. He can correctly answer

What is your name?
How old are you?

Recently, we started to branch out and hope that he would learn not just the canned response, but what the answer means. We started with:

What is momma’s real name?
What is daddy’s real name?

Invariably, he would answer “Is Momma.” or “Is Daddy.” I would tell him the correct answers and then ask again. Sometimes he would repeat my name right, but when I asked him what Daddy’s real name was, he would say mine again. It was evident that he was grasping at straws and just saying anything to get it over with. WELL….tonigh he totally got it 100% right!!!! No sneaky prompting. No cheating. I just asked him what my real name was. And he knew it! Daddy’s too! 100% right on the first try!

He knows my name! And he says it with the cutest squeaky 4 year old accent. Extra punch on the second syllable. I may let him call me by my first name from now on!
