Driving DS to pre-K this morning he saw a sign on the back of a dump truck. It said “STAY BACK 300′”. He asked what the number was. I said 300. He said 300 Gallons. I said “No, 300 feet”.  Then, I had this visual image of 300 body parts, you know the one at the end of your leg, a foot. 300 feet with toes and everything. I must be so confusing to be 4 years old.

How do you explain that while feet are body parts they are also a unit of measurement?
