I know this is a controversial subject, but I also know that most of the people around this space parent away from society's norm. My question that I would love, love, love feedback on is about the upcoming vaccination for the swine flu. Are you getting it? Are you going to have your children get it? If not, please tell why? My concern is that it is untested (goodness knows, even many of those vaccines that are tested aren't necessarily "safe"), but the thought of my little boy going through a flu, fever and weakness makes me unsure about what to do. I wouldn't normally vaccinate him for a flu, but all the hype around the swine flu definitely has me thinking.
Eventually we will all follow our own instincts, but I would love to hear whatever anyone has to say about it.
I am a stay-at-home mom of one boy. I'm hard at play with him while he's awake and his nap time is my time to create and catch up, whether in the form of spending time with my hubby, making collage-card scenes while listening to Madeleine Peyroux, trying out a simple sewing project, doing chores while listening to "The Moth Podcast," or reading some of the great blogs I have listed on my sidebar. I have a passion for cleaning up this world starting with my home - one step at a time. My son will dwell on this earth for 80 some-odd years (inshallah) and I intend to do my part unlearning some bad habits to make it livable for him and all of our children.
