eggs are good for us

Yesterday Nina helped me make the batter for the Valentine heart waffles.  I was cracking the eggs, and she had a very intelligent look on her face, eyebrows furrowed, ready to say something important.  "Eggs are good for us, huh, Mom.  They are good for our tummies," (she is rubbing her tummy here and nodding her head now).  "Because eggs are fruit," she said.  

I'm always telling her that fruit is good for us...apparently something's getting through, but not very clearly!

 I told her, "Yeah, eggs are good for our tummies, but they are kind of more like meat instead of fruit."  

So then she came to the wise conclusion, "Yeah.  They are meat fruit."
