That's "Knife" with a "K"!

I was teaching my niece, Eden, who just turned four years old today, how to play "I Spy". 

When it was her turn, she picked a word that started with "K". It took me a couple of minutes to realize she was talking about the camera I was holding in my hand. And then I had to explain to her why it sounds like "k" but is really spelled with "c".

The next word she picked was "knife", a word that obviously starts with "n"... here we go again.

Can someone remind me of that logic again? I'm a bit rusty.

Oh... and happy birthday, Eden! I hope your generation will be a more rational one than ours.
