My 3 year old daughter explains sunsets

“The sun is up in the sky. (holding her left hand above her head). Like this. Then the moon comes over and bumps it out of the sky. (hitting her right hand into her left hand) That’s what makes the sun go away.”

 I have had 6 semester hours of college-level Astronomy, yet I don’t remember the explanation being so cute.
