Hahahaha. Today we were picking up lunch somewhere and the toddler was running around while we waited and I gave her an ice cube to play with which she dropped on the disgusting floor then picked up and put in her mouth. I would've taken it out of her mouth, but I figured she had already sucked off all the gross anyway. Immune system building!

Our unexpected solution to the vegan-with-child isolation has been making more and more childless friends who like hanging out with little kids. My husband has amassed a nice community of friends he does sports with who also like coming over and playing with a toddler (we also now have a couple friends through the sports connections with multiple kids who don't notice the added chaos of one more toddler, but aside from our downstairs neighbors, we don't see them that often). Our friends either come over to our place to eat (so no vegan worries) or we go out to a restaurant and all agree to order vegan so we can share or when we go over to their place they'll cook a simple vegan dinner. Our downstairs neighbors (with three kids including two toddlers) often watch our toddler for short periods of time also, and we do the same, so we can each get things done. Also, I started a baby and toddler playgroup that's mostly food-free and is organized around a different common interest (i.e. not just having babies, which I don't find enough to make common ground with people over). It's working so far. I haven't found playgroups in general that awesome so far because everybody's distracted by their kids and it's hard to have an actual conversation with the adults and also it's a tough way to meet simpatico adults if you want to talk about anything but children. I highly prefer playgroups in contained spaces instead of parks or public spaces that are easy to trash (like libraries) so you can spend a little less time chasing children who've run off and more time talking to adults.

P.S. The school context is totally different from the playgroup context. It is so easy to keep allergic kids away from their allergens in a school setting and even kindergarteners know what they're allergic to and will ask the right questions if they're worried. Toddlers not so much with the asking, but also toddlers just don't have the social skills to wait or ask permission and the playgroup itself is totally informal with people eating randomly and also being cool with other toddlers just coming over and taking their food.

My newest pet peeve: people who just do not understand what vegan means, even after you explain it to them clearly.

Me: I don't eat anything that comes from an animals, including milk and eggs.
Them: Oh, but you still eat cake with eggs in it, right?
Me: Nope, no eggs.
Them: YOu can still have some types of cheese, though.
Me: Nope, not any kind of dairy cheese.

I don't think they refer to leafy greens (because, they are vegetables) or pseudograins (they are usually considered grains). I'm afraid such classification only enforces the belief that many meat-eaters hold, that we either have to eat meat or meat imitations, so that being vegan is more expensive.

I'm surprised how many vegans don't eat legumes because "they're gassy". My first thought is "what do you eat then", but then I remember raw-foodists who don't eat them either and can get enough of every nutrient.


Quoting because my vegan pet peeve is still gas. I still eat everything that gives me gas though.


I had way, way worse gas pregan. I blame the dairy.

Ahaha, my sister's boyfriend's sister was like 12 and would always ask my sister, can you eat an orange? Are oranges vegan? Is a potato vegan? etc etc etc

OMG. Who are these people? Who can look at that and see anything other than cute, sweet, amazing, beautiful, wonderful, and precious?

I just don't get it. I mean, I get the disconnect, but not this. Maybe its more honest somehow, but it makes me feel that there is something fundamentally broken inside of people who think like that.

Thank you for all the posts about how to feel less isolated as a vegan parent. I'm going to start getting some more fun stuff on my calendar!

Also, this reminded me of you guys. Vegan kids are vegans too!

Me. I don't think it's cute or sweet. I just think its a living thing and I don't choose to eat living things.

It's not really a peeve but it does surprise me that people think I'm an animal lover just because I'm vegan, because I'm really not. I don't even look at kittens on the Internet.

But do you see a cute piglet and immediately think "bacon?" I just don't get that. Not squeezing over all the animals is totally different.

yeah I totally agree with this. I actually do find many animals attractive and all that, and I like to look at funny cat videos on the internet, but I'm not vegan because I think animals are cute and fuzzy. It does irk me when people think that. From an ethical standpoint obviously you can be vegan and not particularly like animals at all.

First time I was visiting my SO's sister in her new home, she told her mother in law that I don't eat any animal products. The mother in law said she'd lock all the cats in one room. SO's sister asked why, and the mother in law replied - because I didn't like animals.

This times a million. I don't go all squiffy over animals, I've never been a pet person (although I appreciate others are). I don't really get the "cuteness" thing. Even if an aniaml was the ugliest and most useless thing on the planet, it would still be wrong to eat it.

My super epic oral fixation makes me want to put animals in my mouth. Not in an rating way - in a love biting way. My animal rescue friends totally understand why I comment with stuff like "NOM I NEED HIM IN MY MOUTH!!!"

I don't get how people can look at an animal picture and say "mmmm, almost bacon/steak/etc", either. Pregan I could not do that.

Also.... The piglet needs to get in my mouth. For love.

i squee whenever i see a furry animal.
i tell my husband all the time i want 100 guinea pigs in a basket so i can shove my face in it and die of happiness.

anything cute and furry needs to be my friend/pet.

any wild animal that comes into my yard becomes an "outside pet"

ive collected a turkey, a toad, and some shrews plus all the birds/squirrels/chipmunks.

i want them all to be my friends.

i am definitely one of "those" vegans/animal lovers ;-)

although i will say im not really a cat person which seems to be a vegan sin. but in all fairness im allergic so me and cats arent on good terms.
