What does a hammer do?

One of the perks of being a parent is getting to watch your children learn about the world...and hear all the funny things they say! Today, I had one such experience. This week at preschool, Ella is learning about tools and construction. So, today was "Share Day" and Ella was supposed to bring in a tool. I have a small "girlie" hammer (seriously, it has flower print on it) that has two screwdrivers inside the handle. Since it is small, I decided to let Ella bring it to share. Well, later this afternoon, our friend Dawn and her daughter Olivia dropped by and Ella decided that she wanted to show it to Dawn as well. So, while Ella demonstrated how the screwdrivers came out, I asked her,

"Ella, what does a hammer do?"

Her response? "It hams."
