Ashley: Gramps has been collecting eggs for our incubator, and one day we're going to have baby chicks.
Big Kid: Dat will be cool but I don't want dem near my face, or else dey'll peck at my eyes and stuffs.
Ashley: No they won't, they'll have known us forever. Did you know that the first large moving object a chick sees as it is hatching out of the egg becomes it's mom? So if a chick was hatching and it looked at you first, it would think you were it's mother!
Big Kid: I can't be a mudder, I'm dest a kid.
Ashley: Sure you can, you can be a mom to our chicks.
Big Kid: I don't know. I don't know if I want to be da mudder. I dest like bein' a kid. I guess I'll twy it and if I don't like it, I'll dest gib up.
Ashley: Well you can't give up on being someone's mother. What if I gave up?
Big Kid: (thinks for a moment, looking very concerned) ...I don't fink you can. Hmmm. I'll dest make sure da chicks don't see me den.
I've found myself a hatching mentor. She just hatched ducklings. Go see how cute!
