What’s good for the goose may not be good for the gander!
That is definitely the case when wanting your child to share your interest in hobbies, clothes and taste buds. Let me tell you I learned that lesson quickly the hard way. I had a preconceived notion in my head that of course my child would enjoy the same things I did and cringe at the same things that made my skin crawl. But I realized pretty early with my son Ace that I could not have been more wrong. Yes even in the womb he exerted his independence. Let me tell you, from the beginning I should have known that I was in for it when after I had been on a vegetable, fruit and occasional chicken and fish diet for the better part of 10 years, along comes Ace and from my very first trimester on I could not satiate my craving for anything that did not say oink or moo. Folks I’m talking full on meat mania. The Idea of my perfect meal for the better part of 5 years (breast-fed both boys until at least 18 months) became a grand double burger smothered in bacon. How did this happen?
