  1. Oh gosh. My son is 6 and I’m positive he doesn’t even know that word exists (except as Jane’s brother :)). Regardless, practicing sounds is pretty much the only way to work on correcting speech, so good for you!

    1. We call it a penis here, in home. I have found this year in school he is learning quite a bit of new vocabulary …. peers, gotta love them!

    1. Oh it is amazing, for sure. I always say “no one could have prepared me for boys” as I grew up with a younger sister. No real boys around for relatives at our ages.

  2. Haha, your son definitely sounds like he’s got the guy sense of humor already. We did a lot of the “sound it out” exercises when my kids were little.

    1. Yes, he is learning all sorts of new words at school this year. Sigh. Luckily around here we call that body part a penis so I know he didn’t hear it from my home. School brings so many new ideas into their heads; both good as well as challenging.

  3. OMG I was cracking up! Wow these kids are a little to advance for me…I can’t believe he tried you like that. I am glad you diverted it quickly!

  4. Sounding out words, reading, practicing names..these are all the activities that have me stressed out, and lacking patience. I must breathe before i scream when it comes to this practice with my kids.
