How about when Crazy Parents go Vegan? Parents lose it everyday, but for some reason, some of the craziest like to take Veganism down with them. The NY Daily News reports that Coney Island dad Raphael Spindell has spirited his 14-month old son Andre away from his mother-in-law's to go live with him and his wife in the woods somewhere.
Raphael has been talking about building an eco-village in Belize, where everyone can live off the land, free and healthy, but Child Services threw a wrench into things when they awarded Grandma custody of Andre because the kid was malnourished.
In the mean time, the couple's on the run, in a motor home in the forest upstate somewhere, living off, what, gas station food? Kudos to mom, though for keeping up the nursing for 14 months. Whoa.
