Overheard in our house: My mommy used to babysit other babies when she was a little girl, until she went to college and got a real job.....(wait for it) which is *having* babies.

The Eggs-periment

This weekend our family visited the Imagination Station in Toledo, Ohio. It was a fun break and Reagan enjoyed the Dino Dig area immensely. I wish I could say I had pictures to share with you, but I forgot that my camera was in my bag (oy vey) and pictures unfortunately.

HOWEVER, before we left to visit the museum, we checked out some cool science experiment ideas on their website and we were able to replicate this one at home.

First, take a glass and fill it with vinegar (they use white vinegar, all we had on hand was apple cider vinegar) and drop a raw egg into it (carefully!)

Next--the easy part (lol!) let it sit. Overnight our egg shell was completely eaten away by the acid in the vinegar (the acid eats the calcium in the shell). The scum you see floating on top of the vinegar is the calcium.

The membrane of the egg was still there so that the egg looked jelled..but it was still raw!

We let it sit a few more days and our egg began to swell because the membrane is permeable so vinegar was actually moving into our egg. We popped it open to show that it was still raw.

Reagan thought this was the coolest experiment. I bet your kids will too!

I'm linking up over at Tiny Talk Tuesday hosted by Not Before 7. Head over there to read more great kid-speak!

This is a Reaganism from last year, that was originally posted on my personal blog. My daughter is hilarious! You should see her Bible comparison here!

Last night I moved Reagan to our bed because she had thrown up earlier and I wanted to keep an eye on her. In the process of moving her, I woke her up..just barely. Still half asleep, she heard a train in the night and mumbled: Sometimes I hear a train and it wakes me up and then I say please, please, oh pretty please with a cherry on top, let me get some more rest!


We spent Memorial Day weekend with Josh's parents. One morning Reagan was in the kitchen with Grandma and Grandma was explaining how she doesn't really cook much. After the two of them prattled on for a while in this vein, Reagan looked up and said "So, Grandma, your kitchen is just for decoration then?"!!!
