I find it hilarious that both you and dukey use numbers (improbable ones at that) when you are talking hyperbole out of your ass.
Exactly... the wife and I are both fairly educated in nutrition and she even has her BS in Health Studies so we both know exactly how to get a balanced nutrition for her and our eventual kid. I was more or less thinking it would be incredibly hard to keep the kid vegetarian with certain social situations like going to family homes, sleepovers, school and other things as the child gets older. We both agree that letting the kid choose his/her own nutrition path as they get older will surely be up to them. Only that she will start them out that way.
