So, I thought Sam was calling Josephine "Mommy."

"Meh-may, Meh-may," he kept saying, pointing to her.

"No, Sam, that's Jo, can you say Jo?" I kept saying, over and over.

"Meh-may, Meh-may," he insisted.

Then one day, I got it. "Are you saying Mer-maid?!!"

Sam lit up. She got it! "Meh-maid!!" He shouted.

And of course - Jo is always, always saying she is a mermaid, so why wouldn't he think that's what he should call her? And it seems easier for him to say than Jo.

And she, of course, just knows he understands reality...
