This morning (the morning of the 8th) I explained to Boom-Boom what a vegetarian is. They were talking about it on a morning program and she wanted to know.
Dash, my four year old, said, "I am a vegetarian. Me eat cookies and ice cream!"
We went around about this for a bit. He didn't think that vegetarians ate oatmeal because (my 11 year old helped him on this) cows eat oats and we get oats by eating cows.
I made him oatmeal cookies for breakfast, instead. He decided to not be a vegetarian and have oatmeal cookies (with soy ice cream) for breakfast. He's such a little carnivore!
