So my brother,
called me yesterday wanting to know
if I will want my future child to be a pescetarian like I am
first of all let me say I do not have
nor do plan to have a child any time soon
(sorry mom - and you're welcome Abbie)
But I thought it was a great question
one that I still do not have an answer to
I would not want to push my beliefs on my child
I would want them to decide this on their own.
I mean- it took me 29 years to make this decision.
(me with a huge piece of steak)
I thought I would handle it like I do with Abbie - who still eats meat
I cook dinner for the both of us and if he wants to add meat than he can
but he has to make it.
I thought I could just let my future child pick whatever they wanted to eat
when we were out and they were not at home - but I wasn't going to cook it for them.
(Abbie could if he wanted)
But then I realized that would probably mean my future child would be eating mostly factory farm meat. That was fried or covered in butter, etc.
And wouldn't it be better if he/she had organic meat that was prepared at home?
I still haven't made up my mind on this one.
Luckily I have time.
