um...NO....

I dont buy brand name clothes...in fact most clothes are given to us as hand me downs or from dh's grandma who garage sales. Or I buy them second hand myself.

I wont be buying them cars or paying for their car insurance.

I wont be paying their college.....or their housing.

I also dont go overboard on toys and such. We spend about 30 on birthday's and about 50-100 on each for Christmas max.

We spend about 200 give or take every two weeks on food but that is for the whole family.

And other things here and there....and insurance....

I just dont see it all costing 10K or 12k per YEAR...wow.....

Anyway...I guess the simple answer would have been NO

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
