    Well, we got our first egg yesterday. My two year old was convinced it had a baby chicken inside, lol. Wouldn't believe me no matter what I said! I put it in an egg carton up on the bread box where I THOUGHT she wouldn't be able to get to it. While I was on the phone with my mom, she pushed a chair over, climbed up on the counter, and went to liberate the baby chicken. After she broke it open and realized that I was right (and there was no chick!) she decided to go ahead and eat part of the yolk.

    Oh well, plenty more to come, right?
