A Tiara for a Little Princess!

1 Dec

I’ve been scouring the holiday ads for a present for my precious 3 year old granddaughter.  A friend mentioned a tiara, and it was a perfect idea!  Chloe is a doll and a little princess, so a tiara is perfect.  Actually, Chloe has all of the important things already – parents who love her to pieces, grandparents who love her, and lots of family to love her as well.   She also has parents who make sure she is up-to-date on all vaccinations.  Even though the meningitis vaccine is not recommended for routine vaccination for 3 year olds, her parents made sure that Chloe received the vaccine anyway.  Why?  Well, why not?  My older son died from this disease, and if there is a safe, effective vaccine, already licensed by the FDA for ages 9 months – 55 years of age, then why take a chance?  So what if the numbers say that there aren’t a lot of cases in her age group.  There will be some, and why should we take a chance?  I hope parents reading this will make sure that their children and grandchildren are as protected as can be, so that our little princes and princesses can grow up healthy and happy.  Please visit the National Meningitis Association Web site at www.nmaus.org for more information on meningitis and www.preteenvaccines.org for information on adolescent vaccines.
