Little Drummer Boys

At dinner last night Chris asked me my name. I turned the question back to him and said "Chris, what is my name?"
He answered "Mommy."
I asked what my real name was and he said "Mommy Eppley."
I pushed further to see if he'd say "Mandy" and I asked what adults call me. He looked confused for a second and said "Mary nodded," which took some work to decipher out of the blue.
I finally figured out what he said and said "Chris, did you say 'Mary nodded' like from 'The Little Drummer Boy'?"
Chris nodded emphatically and said "Uh-huh! I did!"
Alex muttered "rum pa pum pum."
