Predicting My Mommy Juice Needs.

Sassy B is in Florida with her Grands & Paw Paw for the next 6 weeks. Although I was hesistant to let her go for that long, the timing works out perfect. When I drive to pick her up, we will also be attending our first Friends For Life - Children with Diabetes Convention in Orlando.

One kid is cake. I can focus on Sugar Free CJ and give him my undivided attention. Especially now that hubby & I are figuring out how to live/exist with diabetes.

Diabetes has no damn rhyme or reason. I am not going to sugar coat it. It does some crazy a$$ shit. I function best with exact rules and guidelines. This disease is a total mind game - to put it nicely. Throw in the fact that my sleeping baby could possibly not wake up, and you have a mama that no longer sleeps herself.

I've read some phenomenal blogs written by parents of kids with diabetes. It is so comforting to know they are feeling and experiencing some of the same things hubby and I are. However, it is also too much of a reminder of how serious this damn disease is. All my paranoia is warranted. That sucks.

When Sassy B finally returns home, Im sure she will be a spoiled mess. I cant blame her. I'd love someone to spoil me for 6 weeks. The more I think of it tho, Sugar Free CJ will probably be pretty spoiled too. Last night he 'argued' with me that all he wanted for dinner was McDonalds. So...we had McDOnalds.

This all boils down to one thing. Mama needs to stock up on the wine supply for when all my babies are under my roof again. I am going to need it.

You are about 100 steps ahead of where I was by acknowledging that D has no rhyme or reason. Man did I try to fit it into a box for a long time.

I'm with Lo on this one...it took me YEARS to accept the fact that there's no rhyme or reason. It's just the way it is.

Enjoy that one kid cake :) And congrats on being able to attend FFL! That's something we've never done either!
