Someone Cut the Moon

Bumble Bee and I were in the car this evening taking clothes to Hummingbird at a friend's house and picking Daddy up from work.  As we turned a corner she spotted the moon and excitedly instructed me to look at it, saying "Look at the moon! It's missing part!"

"Oh," I responded, "I can't see it from here. Is it is a crescent shape?"

"No, somebody cut part of it off!"  I drove a little more and finally got a view of tonight's half moon.  I tried explaining that all of the moon was still there, but that part was hiding because of it's current position between the earth and the sun.  She wasn't buying my "theory."  Anyone could see that part of the moon was missing, and clearly, it had been cut off!
