Canaan has just barely begun to realize that meat=animals. Slippery slope, my friends. The other day, we had the following conversation:
Canaan: "Mommy, I am eating chicken?"
Me: "Yes, that's right".
Canaan: "Chicken is a bird? It looks like a bird..."
Me: "Yes, Canaan, chicken is a bird."
Canaan: "Then I DO NOT want to eat it. It will be SO CROSS with me!!"
Crossness notwithstanding his love of chicken won out in the end. It will be interesting to see how this plays out though.
