Lately I've noticed a new word Jake likes to throw into multiple conversations: "slash".

Here are some examples:

"Mom, can I go outside slash ride my bike?"

"No Maddie, I don't like green beans slash strawberries."

And the mother-load of all sentences:

"I went to school slash came home and played with friends slash took a shower yesterday."

It's hit or miss whether he actually uses the term correctly; he throws it out in the oddest places.  But mostly I find myself mentally writing down what he's saying so I can try to translate and answer him.
