Mommy, there's Eggs
"There's eggs, Mommy, there's two! Come and see, come and see!"
"Mommy!" Eggs means new chicks in toddler speak. In fact there are three new chickies in the incubator in the dining room. Peepeepeepeep PEEP!
Guess how many times a day a toddler peeks in through the window of the incubator.... She brought me a brown-brockled quail egg yesterday for show and tell. After exclaiming over its amazing cuteness I asked her, "What are you going to do with that?" "Put it in the inkerbator and hatch out a chickie," she replied.
