Morning Madness

I spent the night trying to get Sugar's numbers to drop under 200.
We were both crashed on the couch.
Sometimes it's just easier that way.
I felt fuzzy.  Kind of numb around the edges.  Tired.

6:55
And then I heard someone crying.


Tiara wet the bed.
Yeah.
I admit it.
My brain went there
But I didn't have time to stress for too long
About the idea that she could develop Type 1 Diabetes too.

7:05
I whisked her into the bathroom instead.
And stripped the bed.
And started the washing machine.
And returned to help her out of the bath.

7:15
And then I heard a loud noise, followed by screaming and crying.


Great.
Tink.
Forget the fact that it could have killed you.
Somehow I need to get you dressed, little one!!!!

7:25
Into the kitchen.
Time for breakfast.
Fix plates.
Count carbs.

7:35
OH!  We need a blood sugar!

278

STILL???????


Eat faster!
I'll brush your hair right here at the table.
Get your teeth brushed!
I'll grab my shoes.

7:50
EEK!
With one shoe on and one shoe off, I get everyone ushered to the van.

7:55
She's out of the car and into the school building.

8:00
Final bell.

  6. Phew!!! SO glad Tink is okay!!!! A big, heavy night stand fell on Jack when he was about 18 mos. old. SO scary!

    In my house, every school day seems to start with the hustle and bustle of a mad, crazy rush. Trying to get all three kids to school by 7:30am is no easy feat!
