Memories of being a Mom (with T1D)

I just read a post by Kerri on her blog. My emotional memories were triggered, so I just had to respond. I thought it would be of value to post that same response here as well...

awww Kerri - you bring back memories of when I was expecting #2 and coming back from a low---my 3 yr old Amanda with a empty juice glass and sugar bowl, crying "mommy - mommy wake up".

Silly happy memories of the stickiness from that day remain for both of us. That same 3 yr old is now expecting her 3rd child, and to this day I worry about all my offspring.

We all survive, one day at a time, with diabetes being just another part of parenting (and grandparenting). These days, all my grandkids get a sweet treat (glucose tab) only when I open mine up for a low... they know its time to sit and snack with grandma!

Keep growing those happy memories with your little one(s).
