Diabetes takes a back seat

As Grace gets older it's not on my mind as much. I know, can you imagine! The days roll on and we are so busy, well, living, that sometimes we just bolus, dose, extend and then roll. We have much bigger fish to fry most days.

There are always those days, however, when diabetes moves to the forefront. It takes center stage cause it misses the limelight I suppose. It wants all the attention. It must have been an only child growing up, you know that? Those days are fewer and fewer, but when it does get to the stage, the lights are on, the audience of Grace and I are standing at attention, until the light fades and it exits stage left.

There has been so much going on lately. Here's a recap:

JDRF Walk in Philly. 10,000 of your closest friends, walking for a cure.

Like a boss on top of the Art Museum steps. Yeah, she's Rocky.

Our favorite CDE, Gary Scheiner. Walking like a pro.

Halloween - she went as 'social media' with her girlfriend. And of course, Halloween activities!

Social Media!
Apple chunking' at our local orchard. We can sling them FAR!

And most of all, World Diabetes Day, coming on November 14th. It warms my heart when her whole team in 6th grade is gonna wear blue.

That is so awesome that her class will all be in blue on Thursday. As much as you can curse diabetes, I hope you remember you're a terrific mom too. Thanks
