Big A and I were eating dinner the other night, and she looked at me and said, "I think I want to become a vegetarian". I asked her why. She responded, "Because you are". I told her that was sweet, but that it's pretty tough to do, especially when you're a kid and you love hamburgers. Then she told me that what really made her sad was the fact that her grandparents would buy a cow and raise it, then kill it and eat it. She's a pretty thoughtful child, so I explained to her that if that's how she felt, I'd be happy to help her try it.
She came home from her Dad's two nights later and I asked her how it went when she told him that she wanted to become a vegetarian. "Good", she said, "except we were eating chicken when I told him". I laughed, and she said, "So, I think I'll be a vegetarian here and a meat eater there".
