From time to time I feel an unexplained urge to rearrange a well known poem or song. This Christmas, Nikki and I have been amusing ourselves with some of the great pins we've seen on Pinterest. They inspired us to change the words to Jingle Bells to suit a T1D's mood during a 3 a.m. low. We hope it makes you smile a bit, because sometimes that's all we can do.

Type 1 Jingle Bells

Dashing through my room
To the kitchen I must stumble
In the hallway I will bump
For the light switch I will fumble

I open up the fridge
Eat everything in sight
So much fun to treat this low
At 3 a.m. tonight

Oh jingle bells, jingle bells
That sound is just my pump
To test, correct, find ketone sticks
Even Santa would be a grump
