Hello and welcome. Good for you for changing your lifestyle and you find any good 9vegan) shoe stores that cater to the bigger shoe sizes then keep me informed (Size 13,5 to 14,5 would do nicely <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">)

Awesome! Kids are very open to vegetarianism... many seem to shun meat naturally. We are raising our son vegetarian but he may have a dairy allergy so he may end up "accidentally" vegan. My husband (an omni) felt it was important that our son be able to make his own decisions later in life and I agree, but until he is capable of making those decisions we will raise him veg*n. I am happy with how open my husband was to the idea of raising our son vegetarian and it makes me hopeful that he will also make the leap to vegetarian.

That is very good that your husband is supportive in it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> My fiancee is supportive of our daughter eating vegan or vegatarian as well , and hes even thinking about at least switchin some of his meals to vegatarian so thats good , Its good to have support even if they are not vegans or vegatarians <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> And that whole kids naturally shun meat is so true should make us think from the beginging huh ? lol

That's what I worry about with my in-laws. My son is just shy of 10 months and hasn't been eating solids for long... and my husband's family doesn't know of our decision yet. They hadn't even realized I was a vegetarian until very recently (not a very observant bunch lol) and it didn't go over well. He comes from a very meat-centric family of farmers and I think they took it as a personal insult. I'm quite certain they'll try to sneak meat to X because of this. I don't want to deny my son his family, but it would anger me if they go against our wishes. Thus is where it would help if my husband was vegetarian too.

Yea i think sometimes we all have this problem with our in laws or other family or our parents ect not even to always have to do with Vegan or vegatarian its like poepl always think they know better lifestlye or better for your kid it just when you have to make sure they know its importnant they respect all your deciscions or if they dont that therre might be consequence.
