The good news and the bad news.

The good news! I found a pretty good book about vaccines. It gives a remarkably balanced view – the data about each disease right next to the data about each vaccine. I picked it up at the local library but you can also find a new or used copy here. The author, Aviva Romm, has an informative blog where and you can also download her great handbook on herbs for kids for free when you subscribe to her blog. The handbook is really worth it.


The bad news. Womp Womp. Someone found my blog by typing “how to make a single mom my slut” into a search engine. Another strike against humanity. As if we needed one.

Tomorrow is going to be much more awesome. Hang in there single moms!


A small win.

I think we may have met our match in a doctor. He’s a super smart clinician. Thinks like a scientist and not a jaded, overworked doctor. He seems confident but not quite to the point of being arrogant. He treated me with more respect than any of the other pediatricians have so far. And he respects that I am the final decision maker. Finally. Baby is 9 months old and I think we may have found a good doctor for him.

I wore my college sweatshirt as a friend advised. Who knows if that is what worked but I’m definitely going to do it again! 😉

Anyway, I’m going to celebrate this small win today because they are so few and far between. Where’s the champagne??!!!
