Now this post is not to cause a stir or a battle but to pass on some valuable sources I have found while trying to decide the best in vaccinating our kids.

My first two sons are fully vaccinated up to date but after much research and "breaking away" from just doing what I'm told by doctors, I have many questions and I am in the search for answers.

I have asked many a friends' opinion and I must say they are as different as apples and oranges BUT I must say that they are both "fruit" - good, concerned mothers.

This website arranges all the ingredients of the vaccines in a table format.

Dr. Sears: The Vaccine Book

It must be said that there are many moms who are FOR vaccines and there are many moms who are AGAINST vaccines. If you, like me, read many natural and real food blogs, you can almost always find results in the bloggers opinion if you type "vaccines" in the search.

I, personally, want to read it all - the for, against and the "in-between".

I am still not quite sure the road we are going to take. I am still researching and will probably continue researching. I struggle with the ethics of some, the "what if I don't vaccinate and Lincoln dies of Haemophilus Influenzae Type B?" and "what if I vaccinate and Kristian has some horrible side affect?". I go back and forth, so please join me on the journey to research the products going into our childrens' bodies.

Please be respectful and kind (I will close comments if it gets out of hand. Please don't make me pull my "mama card". :)) but I would love to hear your opinion on vaccines. Do you vaccinate? Are you in the research stage as I am? What have you found?

Just a quick note to let y'all know I am back in business- business as in when I don't have anyone or anything competing for my writing time. :)

I'm cleaning out the cobwebs of my little corner of the blogosphere. 


Excuse me. Dust always makes me sneeze!

 A lot of my friends are back up in business as well. When I saw that, I thought, "Why not? I've missed writing and having an outlet." So this is my official "I'll be here writing when I can" notice to you! :)

So how have things been for you? Please leave me a comment telling me what's been happening in your little corner of the blogosphere?
