D-Mom Blog Type 1 Tuesday

Featured D-Blogs of the Week

What great D-Blog posts have you read or written this week? Here are some of my favorite posts I have read recently:

KayRitzdorf of I’m (O) Kay: Relationships. Her mom is having a hard time letting Kay manage her own diabetes, even though she’s in her 20’s. I can relate…I mean how will I be able to let go and let my daughter take care of herself in her 20’s when I’ve been in charge of her care for so long.

Joanne of Death of a Pancreas: Ok, So I’m a Nerd. I laughed when she used her daughter’s glucose meter for her own purpose. I felt off the other day and used my daughter’s meter to check my own BG.

Amy of Embrace Diabetes: My Community. I’m not just including this because she mentioned me (wink), but because it is such a tremendous feeling when us D-parents are finally able to connect with people who “get it.”

Penny of A Sweet Grace: That’s My Gal. Oh my, this just made me laugh. The things kids say!

Jessica of Sticking It to Diabetes: Scissors Required. Um. I think I need to go look at all of our tubes of cake icing gel. I never realized this.

Sherry of Jenna’s Pet Monkey: A Hero Among Us. So often we write about our D-Kids, but what about their siblings? This D-Sister is pretty great.

Amanda of Oh Amanda: Make Your Own Pancake Mix. This isn’t a diabetes-related website, but I am definitely going to give this a try. And I’ll mark the bag with the carb counts.

Jennifer Carden of The Toddler CafĆ©: Summer, It’s in the Bag. Another non-D blog post. Jennifer is the author of The Toddler Cafe and just an all-around great person that I’ve gotten to know a little online. Here’s a way to make your own ice cream. Because we all know that you can have ice cream even if you have diabetes.

Thanks for the linky love! Love your blog–one of my bffs grew up with diabetes…what a great community this would have been for her fam!

Amanda- I’m glad you saw my link to you. I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while and love it!

Yes, it is absolutely amazing what the online community has done for me since my daughter’s diagnosis with diabetes. I can’t imagine not having the support I have found, not to mention the collective wealth of knowledge.

Some great ones there! Read that Scissors Required one a few days ago, and had a good laugh with the wife as she CONSTANTLY discovers that issue when trying to treat one of my Lows with frosting…. So frustrating! Like trying to pry the unopened glucose tab jars open when needed. Thought about doing my own version of that on my blog, but decided to leave her to it!

After reading Jessica’s post I looked at our cake icing gel and it has a hole in it. So that’s good! Next question: Do they ever expire?!

Thanks for the link, Leighann!! I love that post too. My Jazmine is one fantastic kid!

Okay. I’m off to read all the other awesome links you’ve mentioned here! Thanks again!
