My littlest vegan baby turned one a few days ago! It seems like only yesterday that she was born, and yet I can’t imagine life without her. I feel like she was meant to be in our lives, and her big brothers love having a sister more than anything. Recently Rian said, “we are so lucky to have her”, and I couldn’t agree more. It has been the best year ever.
Rian turned 5 a few days ago and we had a little celebration. These 5 years have been the best. It’s lovely to see how he has grown into such a kind and funny person. He keeps me entertained all the time, imagining stories, chatting about things he has learned, asking a million questions. He is so caring, always saying how he loves me and his brother and sister, how he loves animals and wants to help them. I’m so proud of him. Raising him has been the greatest things I’ve done so far, but no matter how grown up he gets, he will always be my baby.
I haven’t blogged in ages so wanted to share a post about our Christmas as a vegan family. Being vegan doesn’t stop us being able to celebrate with family and friends or stop us eating nice Christmassy food!

This is what we did for Halloween this year, and some ideas for the future. (And some cute photos of Síofra!)
I had a lovely moment with my 4 year old recently and thought I would share. It made me a very proud vegan mammy!
Long story short, some do, some don’t. Like with any group of people, some vegans are pro-vaccine and some are not. People may assume that all vegans are against vaccinating but that’s definitely not true.Read More »
Last week was World Breastfeeding Week and so I saw a lot of articles about breastfeeding, mostly very positive. But I was also sad to see a lot of negative comments and judgement about extended breastfeeding (which is not extended at all, of course, but is natural). Vegans don’t always breastfeed but I thought this was especially interesting and strange from a vegan point of view.Read More »
