Should vaccinating kids be mandatory?

I think it’s an individual choice

I’m not about to go barking about what people should or should not be doing with their children. I know women who don’t vaccinate their kids, and I get it. It’s scary, we don’t know which statistics to believe anymore so we follow our gut. My own kids are vaccinated, but I swear my oldest daughter was affected differently than the other two. She would sleep for hours after her shots and on one occasion even threw up. If I had another baby I’d probably still vaccinate because the risk of other diseases are scary to me, but I’d spread them out instead of doing them all at once. I think it’s an individual choice and absolutely should not be mandatory.

We get out every weekend.

We are a family in love with hikes. Thank goodness we live in California and have good weather most of the time. My kids are crazy when they are indoors too much, so we get out every weekend. Fresh air, sunshine, and lots of vitamin D!

Bike rides around our neighborhood…

In the spring my kids are in baseball, so that takes up a lot of our outdoor activity time. It’s also a great time to check out low tide down at the beach, and we’re always taking a walk down there whenever we can! We also love bike rides around our neighborhood — any time it’s nice out we are out there!
