Teaching Your Child To Boil Eggs

Me: ......already dreading the answer....."Err, Anna what's that slimy stuff all over your dress?"

Anna: "Well, Mom, I was finding myself an egg to eat for lunch but none of the ones I opened were white inside".

Me: "How many did you open?"

Anna: "A lot, why?"

If you don't already have one, I highly recommend an electric egg cooker! Received one as a wedding gift 30 years ago and I thought it was the silliest thing, until I used it a couple times. Since then, I've given them as gifts and am now on my second one, which I found almost new for just a couple $'s at a thrift store.

I love how she speaks in such rational sentences! Hold on while I imagine her at 12...or better yet 16....she'll have the BEST answers EVER.

It's pretty impressive that she didn't have bits of shell stuck to the mess. It sounds like she's got the tough part down already.
