If you didn't already notice, I took down my "Honest Scrap" award. The blogger I received it from turned out to be anything but honest. In fact, the Raising Seven Vegans blog was a fake. She stole triplet pictures from other websites, primarily Pyjammy, the blog of a couple with triplet BOYS (did you ever notice the total lack of pink in the RSV blog? among other inconsistencies I won't winge on about).
Just a note: Don't confuse her with Feeding Little Vegans, which is very much legit.
Anyhow, I hope the author can get some help--she needs it. At least I don't have to compete with someone feigning to be 'the perfect parent' anymore, LOL. And in the spirit of the season--and to always try to find the good in the bad--I am going to participate in something that the REAL triplets family is doing called "Cans for Comments".
It's simple. For each comment I receive on this post, I will donate one canned good to charity before the end of the year. We already belong to a CSA that donates over 10K per year in excess organic produce to local shelters and food banks, plus I always participate in the spring USPS food drive, AND we just donated over 3K this summer from my husband's business to the Boston Boys & Girls Club. But there are always more people in need. We may struggle financially at times being self-employed, but it is nothing compared to the desperation of some families with children during the holidays and winter months. No matter how many comments I get, I'll make it happen!!
And hey, if you happen to know me IRL, feel free to mention it in your comment. I want to make sure everyone knows I am most definitely an "honest" blogger, LOL.
And because I try to never leave a post without a picture...and because the internet audience seems to be gaga over little baby pictures...here are each of my vegan babies at birth...
