Last weekend, Daddyo decided to teach The Five-Year-Old how to cook scrambled eggs. And that meant teaching her to crack an egg. To be fair, The Five-Year-Old’s grandmother had taught her how to crack an egg when she was only four, but that was at least a year and a half ago, and The Five-Year-Old was out of practice.

On her first try, The Five-Year-Old cracked the egg perfectly, prompting a chorus of cheers from her doting parents. Elated, The Five-Year-Old smashed the second egg against the side of the bowl with great verve, sending lots of egg and shell into the bowl.

Daddyo, calmly poking at the chips of shell with a fork: “Hmm, I wonder if we should throw these eggs out. There’s too much shell in here.”

The Five-Year-Old, knowledgeably: “Yeah. Our recipe doesn’t call for shell.”

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
