Gotta love internet on our phones!

It's time for everyone in the audience to stand up and yell,,, YAY Christy

Thanks everyone! It's great to share this with those that get it. Haha told my hub and um lets just say medical stuff goes in one ear and out the other and he's like is that good...Im like UM its freaking fantastical. Sheesh lol.

That's funny. I'm constantly explaining to my husband our son's D management and new things I've learned here, because he's doesn't have the time to really be involved and he's just not "mom". Hip Hip Hooray on your A1C, very diligent work to get it. Had to change a lot of settings on son's pump, he had gone up to 6.5, hormones threw us a curve ball and a big growth spurt too, almost as tall as his dad now.

Those hormones and growth spurts are rough. How old is your son?

16 next month, as teens go, he's gave us no problems at all, yet, I guess. Mostly straight A's, honors classes and isn't pushing the limits. Great kid, if I do say so myself. His little brother, 5, pushes the boundaries hourly. He at 16, I'll probably be wearing wigs for lack of hair! Love them both to death, but sooo different.

Awe that's great. I have a 16 year old too, luckily not dealing with diabetes with him. He's a pretty good kid too, but like a lot of kids that age lol if u don't keep on him, he wont get anything done. Yet if its the hottest release video game, he'll be the most energetic, enthused kid ever. Oh I wish he'd apply at least a portion of that energy and enthusiasm into his school work, He does ok, but if he just pushed himself just a tinybit, he really could be getting pretty much all A's as well.

That's funny about your 5 year old, funny how kids can be so different.

I'm glad to hear you two discussing this as I am constantly going nutso w/ the 13 year old.

It's gotta be karma kicking me in the hind parts. Paying me back for all the "bad" stuff I did at that age, lol.

Christy, ha ha, peas in pod, son's a gamer too, no "M" games allowed though, the 5 year old already sees too much! I just nod a lot and agree it's cool. AR, hang in there, I gave my parents a run for there money too, I think girls are a little harder to rein in, they are so emotional at that age! I get snippiness with Nate at times, and then when he's had enough of his brother.
