This morning Hope asked me to make her soft-boiled eggs for breakfast. Tori doesn't really care for eggs and asked me to cut up an apple for her instead. After it was all done and we sat down for breakfast, Hope started to give Tori a little lesson about eggs:
"Tori, did you know that Dad and I are eating baby chicks? An egg is a baby chick, and when we cook it, we're eating a chick. I think the chick is in the yolk and that's why it's my favorite part."
Tori looked at her a little stunned and replied, "I don't think that we should be eating God's creation."
So Hope looks at her and says, "Well, we didn't at first, but things changed and people started eating animals. You ate a deer once and you didn't know that it was a deer!"
Tori just stared at Hope so Hope decided to continue on with her lesson. "Yeah, Dad went hunting and killed a big deer. And you ate it. You didn't know it was a deer and you liked it! He went to this place and they cut off it's head and gave us the meat."
Tori, seeming to have forgotten about her objections to eating animals got pretty interested and started throwing in her own adages.
"Yeah, and they cut off the legs too."
"Nu uh Tori! They didn't cut off the legs. We ate those too."
Tori, a little shocked, replies, "And the shoes too?"
"No Tori, they took off the shoes."
And that, my friends, is how the conversation went this morning over breakfast.
