I've been teaching my nephew random words from several languages, with frequent "pop quizzes" in which I ask "what does ____ mean?" Today he pointed to a patch on his shorts (shown above...sorry it's blurry, but this is the best I had because he insisted on being the one to take the picture, and since I was driving, I didn't have to much of a chance to argue with him) and said: "Do you know what this means?" I replied that I didn't know, and he said "Win. Not when, like waiting; win like...win." It took me a few minutes to understand what he was trying to explain to me, but I am totally impressed that this 4 year old even thought to explain the distinction.
