parents who do not vaccinate their children

Children Should Not Have To Fight To Live

Anti-Vaxxers is becoming a popular topic, and after some careful considerations and research I decide to give my input.

It is mind-blowing that 20 years ago parents had to make their kids get vaccines that were essential to their health such as vaccines for measles, polio, flu, etc. Now, some parents are wanting to opt their children out of these vital vaccines that can help their kids live a healthy life because of BS claims that "vaccines cause autism."

Because of the misconception that vaccines cause autism, and some parents believing the claim, as kids become older and are more aware of the benefits of vaccinations, some are having to go behind their parent's backs just to get the medical needs that they deserve.

That right there is ridiculous because teens should worry about doing things such as having piercings or getting their hair dyed, not fighting their parents to stay alive.

To the Anti-Vaxxer parents, let me ask you all this, would you rather have a child be happy and healthy, or would you want your child to struggle with the effects of a preventable disease for the rest of their lives and resent you for it? I am sure most of you guys would want your child to be happy and healthy, and I am also sure you all would want to have reduced medical bills.

This can only happen if your kids are vaccinated.

Vaccines are made for a reason. I am sorry to say this Karen, but if home remedies really worked, vaccines would not have to be made. Because of vaccines, the rate of childhood diseases declined, as well as infant mortality rates. To make it as simple as I can, vaccines are made from proteins, and proteins is a natural element that our bodies have since birth. Proteins are also present in the food we eat and even dairy products we consume.

No matter how hard you think you are trying to live a "healthier lifestyle" by avoiding getting your kids vaccinated, you are actually hurting them more.

At the end of the day, I can't make the decisions for every kid in this world that are fighting to get vaccinated, but what I will say is that kids are entitled to live a full life no matter who they are and where they come from. If you still believe that vaccines are harmful to kids, then I cannot change your mind. The only thing I can do is hope and pray that your children will make it in this world and if they do catch an incurable disease, I wish you luck on the relationship between you and your children.

9 Things We All Did In Middle School During The 2000s

We're all guilty of it.

Middle school. The most embarrassing years of my life. I look back at my pictures and just wonder why in the world would I do that? Why did I look like that? How did someone let me do that? But to be honest, I wouldn't want it any other way because I wouldn't have something to look back on today. Just about every middle school girl can relate to this:

1. Getting "married"

I don't know about you but I took my "marriage" very seriously. We had a 25 cent ring and everything. We called each other "wifey's" to top it all off. Believe it or not, we even had a wedding video. It was pretty legit. Then I found out she was also married to another friend in our friend group. It was a sad breakup but we worked through it and she's my best friend to this day.


2. Duck lips

The legendary duck lips. The bigger the lips the better. I went through a phase where I don't think I ever took a picture with my teeth showing. Why did we think this was cool? I wish I knew.

3. Atrocious wardrobe

Sophie shorts ring a bell? I think I had one in at least every color. Oh and don't forget about my soccer ball ones that I just HAD to wear to soccer practice. What about tying your shirt to the side or tucking in the front of your t-shirt to your shorts? For some reason, this was a long-running style. I am not sure how.

4. Forward messages

Those messages were so annoying yet fun. If I didn't forward those I swear I thought something was actually going to happen to me.

5. Learning everything on the bus

From bad words to inappropriate anything. You learned what things were and where things came from. I learned more things on the bus than I ever did in school.

6. Festivals

They were the best thing to do on a summer weekend. You couldn't miss it. Although no on really rode the rides or played games. It was basically a giant get together for your side of town with a bunch of middle school drama.

7. Awkward mirror selfies

Don't lie, we've all taken them at some point.

8. Edited pictures

There were edited pictures with irrelevant words surrounding our faces. Or writing the words "BFF's" around it to make sure everyone knew that you guys were best friends. At some points, I would actually have people like my status for me to make them an edited picture. Consider yourself lucky if you didn't. Pic Monkey was my life.

9. Webcam pictures

What're you doing tonight? Oh, just taking pics on my webcam.

Looking for a good cry today? Take a scroll through this list of "We're Going To Disney World" reaction videos and I promise, you'll be singing "When You Wish Upon A Star" and sobbing by the end.

1.  Movie trailer.

Mom and Dad put together a fake movie trailer as a way for the kids to guess what was going on (the first minute and a half of the video). I lost it when baby girl started crying. The way they squeal with each other when they find out they're having breakfast with the princesses is priceless. I'm already done, guys.

2.  Game of pictionary.

Okay, these kids are the absolute cutest. Like the cutest ever. I pretty much died when brother hugged his little sister.

(I definitely recommend your turn your volume down for this one, though. You'll see what I mean.)

3.  Mystery presents.

THIS WAS SO CREATIVE AND CUTE. WHY DOESN'T MY SIBLING DO CUTE THINGS FOR ME? Seriously though, this was so incredibly creative and thoughtful. I love the gag gifts that seem so random until she puts it all together. Ugh. So sweet. Plus grandma recording in the background is the cutest thing ever.

4.  Christmas unboxing surprise.

Little man stole my heart in this one. His reaction was literally everything. He RUNS into moms arms and SOBS. And now I'm sobbing. And then he thanks mom and dad like a bunch of times. This just seems like the sweetest family.

5. Luxury limousine.

This was cute as is and then got even cuter as the limo pulled up. This kiddos were so cute and giggly and I love that momma made sure they knew how much she and daddy loved them. Ugh, so pure. I hope they had the best time.

6.  Sleeping beauty.

This little girl went zero to a hundred REAL quick. From dead asleep to jumping on the bed in less than a minute. She was so precious with her "let's go" and "how do I look" comments. And she thanked her parents! Man, I want to be her friend.

7. Bursts of tears.

I lost it with little dude started crying, BUT THEN LITTLE GIRL BURST OUT IN TEARS AND I REALLY LOST IT. This was TOO CUTE TO HANDLE. Also can we talk about how adorable these guys looked in their hats? I literally can't.

8.  Mickey cookies!

These girls are the sweetest when they realize they're going to Disney World, AND that their bags are already packed in brand new suitcases. How fricken cute. Look at their cute little skip to the bathroom, and how excited they get over the new suitcases. Who knew kids even got excited over suitcases? These girls are adorable and their momma is the best. ALSO, HER COOKIES LOOKED AMAZING.

9.  Gulf of Mexico.

These kids were SHOOK when they realized their usual drive to Iowa was looking a little different than usual. Props to mom and dad for utilizing the OG Mickey Mouse Club theme song to drop the bomb on their kiddos. And props to them for keeping it a secret until ten hours in on their drive! I also love how it took bud a second to process the news before it finally hit him.

10.  Today?

This sweet baby cried happy tears when she found out she was getting to go to Disney World that day.I think her sister was just glad she didn't have to go to the dentist. Needless to say, I cried when she cried.

"Disney World?"

Time to birth some children and save my entire salary so I can make all the dreams come true. I only hope my kids are at least half as cute as all of these babies.
