Caring for my Penguin Egg

Little K learned from class last week how a male penguin keeps the egg
warm until it hatches. They were tasked to do the same at home, with a
hard boiled egg, to teach the child responsibility. They were to care
for the egg, take it wherever they go, and keep a journal of the
adventure. Here is K's journal (with a little help from us):

"I received my very own penguin egg to care for and keep safe on
Wednesday morning. My Mom placed my penguin egg in a ziplock bag and
asked me to take care of it like we learned in class. It keeps it warm
and cozy being inside the bag. My sister C also wanted to care for my
egg but I didn't let her. She took it from me during playtime at home
and I cried. A lot. My Mom helped get it back at which point I decided
to keep it in my pocket. I carried it around like that all day until
we took a nap. I put my egg on my pillow and we took a nap together.
After naptime we went to Costco and we took my penguin egg with us. It
was in my pocket again and I wanted to see it hatch but my Mom and Dad
said to be patient. So I waited. I don't know how it happened but I
tripped and landed on my egg. I think that is when my egg cracked. I
tried."
