Too Many Vaccines

Talking with parents about vaccinations is on par with discussing religion or politics. My husband and I refuse to do it. We aren't necessarily anti-vaccine but we are terrified of the idea of vaccination injuries. Coupled with the rising incidence of autism (for which NO ONE can find a cause) we have delayed vaccines for our two young boys. Agree with me? Disagree with me? It doesn't really matter...we all have to navigate this path on our own.

But...I urge you to check out this site from TACA - Talk About Curing Autism

Getting more popular as Jenny McCarthy (whose son has autism...and she swears it was a vaccination injury) is their celebrity endorser.

They are holding a rally to GREEN OUR VACCINES
Please join Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey for the most historical event of 2008, the Green Our Vaccines Rally. Jenny and Jim are working hard to eliminate all toxins from our children's vaccines and have our national health agencies reassess the mandatory vaccine schedule, as our children are receiving TOO MANY, TOO SOON. While Jenny and Jim support the vaccine program, like many, they feel vaccines are too toxic. This country has the ability to provide a safer vaccine supply and schedule to our children and they ask you to join them to demand this for our country's greatest asset, our children.

Who: Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey, sponsored by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Generation Rescue, HEAL Foundation - Healing Every Autistic Life and Moms Against Mercury
What: A March and Rally to give everyone who loves a child with Autism a day for their voices to be heard.
When: June 4, 2008
9:00 a.m. – Gather in front of Sylvan Theatre on the Washington Monument Grounds

Note: the police do not want rally participants to gather on the Washington Monument Grounds BEFORE 9 a.m.

10:00 a.m. – March (PROMPT START TIME)


Where: Washington, DC
Why: Demand Congress take action to Green Our Vaccine Supply while reassessing our current vaccine schedule. Ask Congress to reenact legislation that would eliminate mercury and other toxins from our children's vaccines, study the instance of Autism and other neurological disorders in vaccinated versus unvaccinated children, and to extend the statute of limitations to allow all children affected by vaccine induced Autism to file in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

I bought my husband a GREEN OUR VACCINES tshirt as part of his father's day gift.
Photobucket to show our support.

It is time for action people.
One more child with autism is ONE TOO MANY!

Think about how you can get involved.

YOGI POOFS -the best child play pillows around.

Have you heard about the YOGIPOOF??

I called their company looking for information on this super groovy HUGE bean bag and wound up with one. Let me tell kids adore it.

We got one in turqoise and it is about as long as I am!

My kids think it is an airplane which they straddle and ride. My 2.5 year old winds up and sprints full force into it inthe mornings when he has energy to burn. 3 or 4 kids have crashed comfortably on it for movie time when the adults are socializing at cocktail hour.

It also makes for a great spot to nurse my infant when the toddler wants to snuggle up next to us.


They also make a special nursing pillow that makes this job all the more easy and is better than a boppy because it is bigger and multi-functional.

The cover comes off for an easy wash and the beads can even be replaced as they compress over time. We have had ours a month and I think it gets better over time...softer and squishier.

Yogipoof is a small company out of California...poised for the big time.
Check them out at for pricing and availability.

We're back...again

Ok, ok...we've been less than stellar bloggers lately.
Please accept our apologies and give us a second chance.
Think of us as your precocious toddler who poured grape juice on your new couch but is so sweet and irresistable you wrap your arms around him and say "everybody spills sometimes, sweetie" when you really want to scream, "God Dammit!"

We have great things to share with you in the coming weeks.
Won't you take us back?
