My sweet little girl

Last night Mck and I were driving home from the grass clipping recycle area and we passed the road that goes to my parents house. The conversation that followed was pretty funny. I wish I would have recorded it, because this doesn't do it justice.

My parents place hasn't flooded, but we can't get to their house because the roads to their house are all flooded.

McK: That's the way to grandma's house.

Me: Yep, you're right, it is.

McK: Can we can go there again.

Me: Sometime we can, but it won't be for a while.

McK: We can't because there's water all around her house and grandma has a dike around her house.

I was surprised to hear that she obviously had an idea of what a dike was because she hadn't been out there to see it. My mom must have told her about it or she remembered us talking about it at some point a month ago. The following is where it get's funny.

Me: Do you know what a dike is?

McK: What?

Me: Well it's a (trying to think of the easiest way to describe it to a 4 year old), it's a...

McK: It's something that protects your house.

Me: Yes it is, very good.

McK: Daddy,I know things better than you do.

Me: (laughing) Yeah I guess you do...
