Happy National Nurses Week 2012!

Nurses hold a special place in my heart.

I have met some AMAZING nurses during my lifetime.

My mother graduated from nursing school in 1972.

She was 7 months pregnant with yours truly :)

I graduated from nursing school in 1995...

Last year, I wrote this post about our amazing school nurse team over at the Sunbutter blog.  

Today, I'm hanging out at Sanofi's Discuss Diabetes blog.
We're talking about what it's been like to combine 
motherhood, raising a type 1 kiddo, and my nursing career.
It's not all it's cracked up to be!

Grab yourself a cup of love, and join me over there!
