Burlingame High School students in the psychology class were tasked with taking care of ‘babies’ for three weeks. These ‘babies’ started as eggs and soon grew to be bags of flour. Here are some proud parents showing off their beautiful children and telling you want they have learned from this brief, but inspirational, journey of parenthood.

“This is my baby Gertrude. You know I first bought Gertrude thinking you know she was just an egg. But um, it’s been a couple days now, and I’m starting to really develop a connection to her. And um, to be honest I don’t really know what i’m gonna do without her. And um in about a week she’s gonna turn into a bag of flour. And uh, she’s gonna be a big girl… It’s taught me a lot and um, she’s my baby girl.”- Andrew Icardi
