While grocery shopping with my 4-year old this weekend, we passed through the deli area where they sell various deli meats, roasted chickens, as well as cheeses. My daughter said "what's that stinky smell, mommy?". I replied "That's dead animal, honny." "Yuck, that's stinks!" she said.
A few minutes later we passed through the bakery where you could smell the aroma of freshly baked bread and my daughter said "mmmm, what smells so good mommy?" "That's bread baking hon", I replied.
Funny, isn't it, how sensitive our children's senses are. We 'tune out' so much, but they are keenly aware. The foul smells of the meat products were totally repulsive to her.
I guess "vegan knows, or rather 'nose', best"!
