hello :-) My children are not vaccinated. I am a biochemist, did a lot of research and soul-searching and made this decision years ago. I am usually quite comfortable with it by now...but today, this article, and now I am wondering again, am I underestimating or misunderstanding something about tetanus? What I know if that stats show that there are 1 or fewer child a year that are diagnosed with tetanus in the US each year (no real test) and no child has died from the...
Hi! I am a little bit late in this thread - I only noticed it today. I lost my twin sister a week before our birth. Not only were we identical, we also shared our placenta and sac.

Hi! This year for my son's costume, we bought a cheap mask (very scary - he chose the one he wanted!) and he will just wear black pants and a black top with it. My two younger ones are wearing hand-me downs. I have no idea how we ended up with several costumes for little ones! One year, there was a costume contest at my son's daycamp (over the summer). All the other parents bought really neat new costumes. I was the only one who made one and he was already 6 or 7 so...
