*Last night, while putting Is to bed, we look out the window and see the crescent moon against the sunset*

**Later, she was a little fussy (from her cold, I guess), so I go back in and rock her a little… and we look out the window again. The sunset is gone, the sky is dark, and the moon is lower in the sky**

“Mommy! Look at that! The moon moved!”
“Yes, it’s moving all the time. It revolves around the earth, and the earth is also spinning… so we’re always moving.”
“That’s totally crazy, Mom.”
