Schools back in session

Like many of you mothers out there, I'm sure you have been shopping for school supplies, getting new school clothes and shoes for the first day of school. Well for most of us in the West this is the second week of school for elementary, middle & high school. My youngest went into kindergarten this year and my oldest went to the 3rd grade. Its been a mad rush around my house trying to get the last camping trip of the summer, getting lunches packed, and transitioning to early bed times.


I've been busy with work at my fairly new seems the more you know the busier you become. I've stepped back a bit from selling Stella & Dot only because i really don't enjoy spending my free time with strangers at a party. I'd rather be with my family, so I just did a very successful party with my senior stylist and will be transitioning out of parties. I'm more of a techy- go to my website if you like it, buy it. If not, no bid deal. So it feels good to be selling online from online. I've also starting doing something that I've never done in the past.....making my kids lunches. I've always had my kids take hot lunch (its mostly because I didn't want to make it, shop for it, and cause I always worked full time), but now I want to make the lunches, and with more free time I'm glad to do it.

So for now its time to go and pick up the kiddos from school, get them a snack, ask them about their day, and get dinner started....Awww the joys of being a mom.....

PS- 2 things -- #1 OMG did you watch #UTOPIA on #FOX...crazy doesn't begin to describe it......Watching this show makes me feel really good about myself....just saying......#Utopia = #CrazyVille

#2 I think i might enjoy a microbrew or 2 tonight. It just sounds yummy!

A little something funny - totally not my style, immature, but I laughed so here it is :)

Thanks for reading my Blog. I hope you enjoyed and keep coming back for more....

Yours Truly,

How did you know your child had diabetes? Know The Symptoms (It Could Save a Life)

How did you know your child had Type 1 diabetes? Parents of children with diabetes will hear this question asked a million times. And each time you tell your story the story gets shorter and shorter. You begin to leave out details. Details that may one day save another child's life. I wrote this for a couple of reasons. The first reason was to document the details and help other families who are searching for answers to unexplained symptoms. The second reason was to really get my emotions off my chest, and reflect.

December 30, 2016 is a day I will never forget.  This date will now be forever know to us as Carter's "dia-versary."This was the day my seven year old son Carter was diagnosed with Type one Diabetes. I still tear up when I say or even write those words... my son was diagnosed with T1D. It all kind of happened so fast really. It was Christmas break 2016 and the kids were home for a couple of weeks. Things were normal as usual, stress right before a holiday,…

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?
Where did the term basal and bolus come from? Furthermore, what the heck is the difference?
Being new to diabetes you start to hear new terms that you're unfamiliar with like basal and bolus but the basal we're talking about isn't the kind you cook with (that's basil). 
If you're like me, you kind of feel stupid asking the question because everybody around you seems to know the difference between basal and bolus. You may hear a nurse or doctor say things like "I think we just need to increase your basal." And I'm thinking... which one is that, because I'm looking at NovoLog and Levemir? You don't ask the question but you keep picking up on clues of what this may mean.
I'm going to make it simple for you. Basal and bolus are exactly the same thing, but different. Ok, not so simple. Basal and bolus are terms used for insulin injections. The basal is the long acting insulin that is "always" run…

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!
