Safe, healthy, fair? So many ways I've seen that question go and I try to really contemplate and question myself anew each time I hear or read it. So far, my answer has always been "yes".
I was interviewed last year for an article that ended up being published here on One Green Planet. It made me realize how much veganism has grown over the last two decades and how the there is still a bit of reluctance to embrace veganism for children.
This is one of the reasons I started to blog again. We are a really normal American family. I try to balance what seems like endless interests for my kids (South Indian dance, aikido, gymnastics, voice, acting, piano, role playing games, Magic the Gathering, swim, climbing, etc.) with homeschooling and private school. I try to support my husband's latest obsessions (right now it is sailing) and attempt to take care of our 100 year old house and our rescued greyhound.
We have our ups and downs. Our struggles and triumphs. Sometimes we argue and often we snuggle. I'm not the perfect parent and we may not be the perfect poster family for veganism, but we're real. We do it and you can too.
