Day 15 of HAWMC Two sentence story. Beginning, Middle, and End. Today’s prompt is to do this very thing – but cut it down. Simplify! Do the whole beginning, middle, end in just two sentences.
With Easter near, the dreaded chocolate covered bunnies and gummy Easter eggs are quickly on their way and today they made their way to Cara's class for a hoptastic Easter egg hunt. After coming home she was not able to partake in the sugary spoils of her hunt, unfortunately for Cara the blood sugar gods were not looking down on her; however that did not stop her from going threw each and everyone of her treasures and sharing them with all of her siblings with a great big smile.
WOW I think I may have done it and that was tough!!
I had to leave out how proud I was of her that there was no tears, no, I hate this, I hate that, no, please please please mom!! I took her blood sugar, I told her the number (18mmols, they had unplanned cupcakes for snack at school too) and she just said "awwww, OK" and started flipping through the candy, checking each and everyone out almost to make a mental note of which ones she was going to eat first and without any hesitation she shared her candy with all the kids, I did not even have to ask her. I really can't believe what just happened!!
I wanted to say it is not only that Cara has type 1 diabetes and that we are on MDI that makes me hate candy in my house. I hate the fighting, the crying, the arguing that it causes when one kid comes home with a ton of it and the rest have none. I hate the begging and the pleading that happens when candy is in the house from all my kids. It's not pretty, it's a hassle and I HATE IT! I wish schools would just STOP with all this DAMN candy!!
I also wanted to say that as soon as we start pumping I will not have to dread Easter egg hunts, cupcake birthday surprises at school, Christmas parties, Halloween and birthday parties as much. We are meeting with the pump reps that Cara affectionately calls "the pump guy" at the end of this month and we just can't wait!
Speaking of pumping, something that would really help us out once we start pumping is something I hope to win over at The Princess and The Pump. Go check it out this Pump-Tastic Sugar Bolus...if you want?
OK so not exactly 2 sentences :)
