Perfect timing

One of Peter's latest words is "ow".

He knows you say it when you get hurt but he seems to also like to use the word as an attention-getter or as a preemptive when he is going to do something to inflict pain (like hit his brother).

He rarely uses it when he is actually hurt, though during a car ride the following took place as I was turned around entertaining him (Brett was driving).

Me - Peter, where is your nose?

Peter - (pointing to his mouth) nose!

Me - No, silly! This is your nose (pointing to his nose), and mommy is going to steal it (pinching his nose to retend to take it).

Peter - Ow!

Just when I thought I was entertaining him, he goes and returns the favor... What a thoughtful son :)
