I can still feel that awkward sensation of holding out the wire frame and balancing and egg. When I was older, I became seasoned enough to sit for a while dangling an egg in the water to create a half and half colored egg.
It was also one of those things we did with our dad.
D and I had to reign ourselves in from Project Managing this activity too much. Toddlers just don't have the finesse to lightly drop and egg into a bowl and let it marinate. They're more of the "plunk and turn and pick it out with your hand and drop it in another bowl and use the wire frame as an eye glass" types.
Cheers to Spring!
