Lost in pronunciation

Gus, Jack and I were eating lunch today, and both boys thought it would be funny to burp their ABC's. I immediately told them to stop that gross behavior, say excuse me, and continue to eat. They did, but this time Gus decided to sit and quietly sing the ABC's to himself. After a few seconds he had a question:

Gus: Mom, what's MELLOW P?

Me: What do you mean Gus?

Gus: In the alphabet, you know MELLOW P?

I sat and thought about it for a few seconds and realized what he was asking.

Me: OH!!! Gus, you mean L,M,N,O,P. You have to separate each sound and each sound is a different letter.

Gus: Yeah. I got it.
