    We asked our 3 year old where eggs come from. First he pointed to the fridge and said "there". We thought okay normal answer, but then he pointed to the incubator, and said "they go". Well we thought this was funny, but it didn't end there. He then pointed at the brooder and said, "they go there". And lastly, he said they go outside. I guess he has the whole cycle down now.

    Well, that is better than my 4 year old who, after a trip to Auntie's farm where she helped collect eggs, said, "I don't like the kinds of eggs that come out of a chickens butt. I like the ones from the refrigerator".

    After a little clarification, she refused to eat any eggs for weeks...

    When my youngest DD was about 4, my grandmother was telling her about farm animals.
    She went on to start naming what animals we get certain foods from, bacon and sausage from pigs, eggs from chickens, etc.
    When my grandmother said that milk comes from cows, DD stated, "no it don't, it comes from WalMart", [​IMG]
