I peeled a couple of Easter eggs and put one on Bear’s plate and one on my plate. I sprinkled them both with salt and added some pepper to my egg.
I put his plate in front of him. He looked at the egg.
“It’s an egg.”
“Yes. Eggs come from chickens.”
He gently touches it.
I cut the egg into pieces for him. He is now staring at my egg.
This takes me a second…
“Oh! No Bear, it’s not dirty. That’s pepper.”
“Pay Per. Payper. Dirdy egg?”
“No. It’s just pepper.”
I love conversations with 2 year olds!
