I Certainly Hope I Made The Right Assumption

I had an interesting conversation with Emma the other day. While I was in the middle of drying my hair, she popped into our bathroom and the conversation went like this:

Mom - What does dam mean?

Hoping all to goodness that she in fact meant dam and not damn, I explained that it was something that held water back to keep areas from flooding and I used the side of the bath tub as an example. I exhaled and the thought crossed my mind "wow, I can't believe she just asked me that". We're by no means perfect people but off the top of my head I can't think of anywhere we could have been that someone has cussed in front of them.

I finished drying my hair and casually asked her. So, Emma. Where have you learned about dams?

She paused and said "Hmm. In Sunday School."

Oh dear ... am I going to survive this ornery child of mine? It makes you wonder, how could someone so cute be so confounded mischievous?
