Me too! If she isn't willing to budge on vaxxing, guess what's going to happen when something comes up and you don't agree with her. I mean anything, like you don't want a test she wants for the LO, or you'd rather not do antibotics for a ear infection. This to me says that it's her way, or the highway. I need someone who will listen to me and respect my point of view, even if she doesn't agree. To be honest, it doesn't sound like she would have time to listen to you, and if she did, her personality sounds like she wouldn't exactly be warm and caring about things. I would find somewhere else.

Also...on the vax thing...what if a child in her care has a major reaction? Too bad, you have to vax on schedule anyway? Eek.
