Foreign Language

I am learning new words every day around here - baby talk - but also BOY talk. We got this book as a baby gift when he was born, but since it was above his reading level we just started using it. And I am treading on new ground...I have NO idea what an excavator is. Or a wheel-loader. Or an off-highway truck. After reading the 3rd sentence, I was a little blown away. Couldn't even finish it. "Lower the tractor blade down to the ground and start dozing that dirt." Ok, as a mommy of girl first, I try to stay away from dirt and blades in general. Now, I'm telling my child its okay to play in dirt??? Well, MC never liked the dirt anyway. We are throwing words around here like "tyrannosaurus" "pee pee tee-pee" "toilet guards" "wenis" and now "excavator"... seriously, this is foreign to me.

Yea, Murphy is available for tutoring anytime:) Construction vehicles or anything is his thing...I tried to make him like trains and other stuff...but it didn't work. He's obsessed.
