To the nosy bitch who claimed to call child services, the police and the health department on me because I advertised wanting to find a chicken pox party for my child, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. I refuse to vaccinate my child against things that you can catch natural immunity against "the old fashioned way." We have chosen to not vaccinate our child at all with those extremely controversial substances and feel wonderful about our decision. I understand that chicken pox can be dangerous, but our child has a healthy immune system AND is still being breastfed, which helps combat ANY illness. It would be more dangerous if he caught the virus after he stopped breastfeeding and had to fight it off all on his own. Chicken pox symptoms are far less severe in children than adults, so I want him to get it sooner than later.

Your accusation that I'm trying to actually KILL my child is absurd. I'm a loving parent, one who cloth diapers, co-sleeps, practices elimination communication, wears him instead of pushing him around in a stroller and am even raising him as an organic vegetarian- you have absolutely no right to try to get involved in our life and our choices. We don't appreciate anyone trying to tell us what is in our child's "best interests" or our best interests in any aspect of our lives. We're capable of making our own decisions.

Butt out!
