If you need help with the tile of this post let me translate for you:
The We CARA Lot Blog is Heading to Toronto for the Children With Diabetes Friends for Life Canadian Conference
and I can't wait!!
"Children with Diabetes (CWD) presents our Second Annual Friends for Life
Canada conference! Join our international group of world-renowned
clinicians, researchers, physicians, adults, children, and families with
diabetes to learn the most current information in diabetes care. Attend
educational sessions and get cutting-edge ideas for your family's
diabetes management. Participate in parent discussion groups and find
new, creative ways to help and motivate your children. Connect in-person
with families you've met through the CWD online community. Watch
toddlers and teens, young parents and grandparents, new diabetes
professionals and practiced clinicians make new and lifelong
friendships. This is a conference you won't ever forget!" (taken from the CWD website)
This will be my first diabetes conference that I have ever attended and as much as I wanted to head down to Disney with all the kids...Toronto will have to do!!
I can't wait to get my hands on some new and much welcomed D information and to meet some wonderful great people :)
Cara & Kirstin will be making the trip with me and I really think Cara is going to L.O.V.E being surrounded by children her age and others that have diabetes. Her face just lights up when she meets anyone that has diabetes.
It will be a wonderful experience for her and one that I hope she remembers for a very long time. I just wish I had a better video camera for all these amazing adventures that we have been going on lately.
Kirstin is one of my non-D kids and she has a very important role and reason for coming with us. Kirstin will be Cara's buffer. Although Kirstin is 19 months younger then Cara, she is outgoing and loves people and she is comfortable in any situation. So we are going to "throw her to the lions" (if you will) or the FFL daycare in this case and show Cara how it is done!!
Hopefully this will help Cara feel more comfortable having Kirstin there. She is just too shy for her own good, I don't want her to miss out on anything and with Kirstin there leading the way, I don't think she will!!
We are going to have a wonderful weekend!!
Pictures & blog posts from the CWD FFL soon to come :)
Oh and btw our pumping cases are complete, everything is done and August 15th we will be pumping insulin :) What a great feeling, all the nerves and anxiety are gone and I know that we can do this!!
