Hatching out

Liam thinks all baby animals come from eggs.  I haven't seen my way clear to really get into this with him at this point, but maybe I'm wrong.  I correct (gently and without fanfare) most other fundamental misconceptions.  I guess it just seems like a slippery slope.  Also, the baby animals hatching from eggs thing is sort of priceless-ly sweet and funny.  So genuine.

Tonight on the way upstairs to brush his teeth he was a baby tiger, newly hatched from an egg: "Mommy...Look...A baby Tiger.  It's hatching out!  Watch it.  Tap, tap, tap.  Creeeek.  It's hatched!  Awwwah.  It's so sweet.  Such a sweet baby Tiger."
