Vaccinations

This cannot be long as Willow will wake up very shortly but I had to write something.

I am completely, and totally annoyed at how many times I hear "are you concerned at all about how you're un-vaccinated children are putting others at risk for disease"???

One, my kids aren't sick, nor are they harboring any diseases, that's YOUR vaccinated children.  THEY have the diseases lurking in their bodies, or at least they should since that's the whole point of vaccinating correct?  I have more to worry about MY children being in contact with YOUR vaccinated children then you have to be worried about mine around yours.

Second, IF my kids get sick, then I have a wonderful thing called a doctor to take my kids too.  Now yes, I weakened my older children's immune systems with vaccines, but my younger two have completely healthy and NORMAL immune systems, well okay not Willow yet, but she has mine to help her out.  However, shooting something straight into the blood stream does NOT inoculate you!  Too many people think it does, but the first line of defense in your immune system is your GUT!  Not your blood, if the disease makes it to your blood stream then it's already gone too far.  So the immunity you think you're providing with vaccines does not LAST!  Because you're not introducing the disease in a way that you're body is prepared to fight.  So you're only protecting them partially, if at all. This is the reason you have to get multiple shots, because the immunity will not last because your body isn't being exposed in the way the immune system is designed to work!

I think our immune system is an amazing defense system, when we trust it to work correctly.

Would you, at any time, inject aluminum, formaldehyde, salt, sugar, or any other substance into your body? Formaldehyde is said, by the FDA to be unsafe in any amounts, and yet there's trace amounts IN vaccines.  That's right, embalming fluid is in vaccinations....yes, trace amounts, but again I state, scientists and Dr.'s both say that NO amount in your body is safe, it's a nuerotoxin.  It kills brain cells.  Um.....a little contradictory when those same Dr.'s are telling you that vaccines are safe right?  What about that trace amount of formaldehyde?  Also I will contend that individually the amount of aluminum in a single vaccine is less than we'd get from eating fresh saltwater fish.  It's not "safe" but it's not "un-safe" either.  Until you take into account that most vaccines today are combined, meaning that each of those vaccines has a "safe" amount, but having more vaccines means you're not injecting unsafe amounts of aluminum into your child.

Have you heard of the blood-brain barrier?  This barrier keeps all heavy toxins, that we ingest or is injected into us away from the brain.  Awesome right?  Well, that barrier is not fully functional until AT LEAST TWO YEARS OF AGE.  TWO.  That's at least, some kids it can take longer.  So we're injecting children with no protection of their brains, with unsafe amounts of formaldehyde and aluminum and many other chemicals and toxins (as some of the actual bacteria we're vaccinating against are also toxins) into our young children who have NO defense against it.

It's one thing to vaccinate an older child or adult, who has a better way of absorbing, excreting and protecting their brain against these things, but to inject a very young, very small infant with the same amount of toxins and chemicals you inject a much older, bigger adult with is mind-boggling to me!

So, next time you ask me if *I* am worried about *your* vaccinated children, and how my un-vaccinated children might affect them, my answer is YES, I AM worried that your vaccinated children might just INFECT my children.  But, I trust in their immune systems because they'll get to work correctly, and you're children's may not be very protected.  My children will then receive natural and LIFE LONG immunity where you're children, may even still not because their immune systems have been compromised and overwhelmed.

Where else in nature do we receive 3-4 deadly disease, viral and bacterial at ONE time?

We don't.

Jade's Birth

6month pregnant with Jade


I got pregnant with Jade when James was just 7 months old.  Found out when James was 9 months old.  I was ecstatic, we were hoping that our kids would be close together in age.  Michael joined the army when I was 7 months pregnant.  We did not expect him to be back for the birth.  Michael's Mom, my sister and my best friend Amanda were planning on being there with me to help.  I was again staying at my parents before the birth when "labor" started.  I got up at 4 am to pee, and then I saw that James had moved off his little kid couch where he had been sleeping.  I bent over to move James back and as I bent over I heard a soft "pop" sound, and then felt a gush of liquid.....a big gush.  I was positive my water had broken so I moved James back and went back to the bathroom.  I changed my pad, and then walked around the house a bit.  I was not having any contractions at the time, they had tapered off that previous evening.  I called the hospital to let them know I was coming in and that my water had broken.  The nurse told me to wait until I started having contractions.

I then woke my sister up and she went off to shower, and then I called Amanda, she said she was going to shower real quick and head over.  Amanda got to my house around 6:30.  We left to meet up at my MIL's house and I still was not having any contractions but I was leaking fluid still.  At my MIL's I tried walking around the streets outside to see if I could get my contractions going.  We left my MIL's house though with no contractions.  About 5 min away from the hospital they came on though, every 2 min.

When we got to the hospital they were still every 2-3 min apart, and they got me into triage and gave me a gown to put on, I got it on and then went to sit down on the bed before the nurse came back in (they were in the middle of shift change) and my water broke again.  I went out to get a nurse and a new gown, and when I asked a nurse running by for a gown she took one look at my gown and told me she was going to get me a room.  Which she did.

Then things went pretty fast, I got in a room and my contractions were pretty hard, it was 7:30 when we got there to the hospital, I went into transition at 9:40ish.  I had the same nurse as last time, and given that I still didn't think my last labor wasn't horrible I was actually pretty happy.  However, this nurse also gave me nubain, again.  Without asking me.  It was ten times worse this time.  I was so high it was insane.  I couldn't think, breathe, and I started freaking out.  Especially when it came time to push.

I felt the need to push at around 10:30am.  The nurse told me not to push yet, again, and went to check me, Jade was already crowning because I had been in so much pain that I didn't feel her move all the way down and then people started scrambling around because Jade was coming whether they liked it or not. Then since Jade was facing the wrong way, I had been having back labor and it was even worse when I was pushing, laying on my back.  The nurse kept shoving my knees up to my ears, and I freaked out even more as I was pushing.  I literally, after the Dr came in, started moving myself up the back of the bed to get away from everyone, and I started screaming loudly, and highly, and could barely breathe.  I could also still feel the effects of the medicine.  I did finally have her, after my Dr cut me to get her out quick because of how erratic I was acting though.

Jade Destiny was born on November 19, 2005 at 10:47am weighing 6lbs 11oz and 19" long

She was born 12 days before her due date.



Child Training!

I have been reading a lot of things lately about "training your child" from birth.  I believe in guiding your children, and not letting them run wild, but I also believe in nurturing them and treating them with respect.  Oh and treating them like they are human beings.  When we teach adults do we spank them? Do we treat them with disrespect?  No, we treat them like equal human beings and they respond.  I believe my children are more well-behaved then some others because I treat them with respect.  They respond easier to me because I don't treat them like they are dogs.

Pearl and Ezzo get me the most.

No where in the bible does it say you should spank or beat your children or anything.  A rod, as everyone nicely puts it, was a sheppards crook and sheppards never HIT their sheep to lead them.  Plus, Solomon, the man you wrote proverbs, did not "spare the rod".  His son ended up despised and run off by his own people.  What does that tell you?

Jesus also said that what you do to the weakest members of our society (that could easily be translated as young children) you also do to him.  Would you hit Jesus?  I don't think so.

I just do not get this reasoning!  Enjoy your children they are blessings from God Himself!
