Well, today is a big day for Barrett. He is starting his vaccinations. We are following the Dr. Sears extended and delayed schedule, but I am still nervous about the whole thing. Why is it when we were growing up we were only given 10 vaccines, but our children now have 36? Seriously, what has changed in the 20 or so years to warrant that kind of response to childhood illnesses? My biggest concern is him being in pain and/or responding negatively to the shots themselves. I don't want him to hurt and know I am the reason for that pain. He is far too precious to me to stand idly by and watch some nurse poke him.
I just want to be a good mommy who is informed and educated about the choices I make for my son.
