What preschoolers call the egg yolk...

Since Easter I started noticing some of the preschoolers referring to the egg yolk (that they of course don't like) to a few different things. Here are some of their responses to "What do you call this part of the boiled egg?" The first response is my favorite:

"The animal"
"The seed"
"The apricot"
"The baby"
"The chicken"
"The ball"
"The hatch"


All things family: Mothers

Various projects have taken my blogging time recently...but I'm still here. This would have been a great post for last week. But here ya go anyways. Stop by soon for some fun conversations I had with my preschoolers.

*= Favorite posts- Both happen to be by Rachel Jankovic

*Motherhood as a Mission Field "Look at your children in faith, and see how many people will be ministered to by your ministering to them. How many people will your children know in their lives? How many grandchildren are represented in the faces around your table now?"

*Motherhood is Victory "These mouths we are feeding — these are the mouths that God has ordained to use to silence the enemy....The victory is ours, because the Savior is ours."

Mothers for whom Jesus Died- I never thought about Mothers that are not physically mothers due to past abortions...but John Piper reminds us of not only their motherhood but that Jesus came to die for "abortion-committing-mothers." So good.
