Our children make a study of us in a way no one else ever will. If we don't act according to our values, they will know.~Starhawk New User Agreement! http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/user-agreement
I'm near you, and to be honest, I'm a little worried too. Logically, I know that I shouldn't be. My kids are healthy and if they contracted the measles, they'll be fine. My husband and his sister had measles and he reassures me that it wasn't really a big deal.
My concerns are with the "what if's." The thing is, with vaccination, my fears are of the same thing. What if I do vaccinate them for this and they are injured by the vaccine? What if I don't and they get the rare, but serious complication? It's just complicated either way. For right now, I'm not considering the vaccine though. I don't buy the autism being a product of the MMR vaccine anyway, but I think that all vaccines contribute to our general decline in health, as well as autism.
If mumps comes around, I would probably consider the vaccine, to be honest.
