Groundhog Day - By Baylee

So, I was trying to teach Baylee about Groundhog Day and what it means and everything. So, we logged on to the "official" site of Groundhog Day. I showed her all of the pictures of Punxsutawney Phil and what it meant for him to see his shadow today. This is what she was trying to tell Britt tonight when he was asking her about it.

Baylee: Daddy, we saw the Groundhog today
Britt: Really? Do you know his name?
Baylee: Yes (nodding at me like tell him his name)
Me: Punxsutawney Phil
Baylee: Punxsutomey Till
Me: Did he see his shadow?
Baylee: Yes
Me: What does that mean?
Baylee: His Momma
Me: Huh? What does it mean that he saw his shadow?
Baylee: A tree
Me: Huh? No, it means that when he see's his shadow we will have 6 more weeks of winter
Baylee: And, the beach? He was on the beach in the water.
Me: Was he laying in the sand?
Baylee: He go'd to the beach and played in the water. And, he built a sand castle to live in.

Britt and I died laughing. She is so funny and it's hilarious some of the stuff she makes up!

I think her story makes more sense than us all believing he can predict the weather!

Heck I still don't get the whole groundhog thing! At least Baylee came up with her own story. :)

Mia was absolutely convinced it was "Hedgehog Day." Gotta love that preschool crowd, I tell ya.
