I am a 30-something wife and mother of three crazy, handsome and talented boys, affectionately called “Small”, “Medium” and “Large” at our house. I eat too much chocolate, am addicted to McDonald’s diet Coke, and spend too much time on Facebook.  I don’t like wine, coffee or exercise.  I don’t shop at Whole Foods and I wear fake Uggs.  I am not a 5’10” drop-dead gorgeous bombshell.  My personal motto is, “I’m doing the best I can!”

I hope this blog will help other women realize that they don’t have to be something they are not.  You are just fine the way you are. We all have our flaws, but we have a lot to offer too, and if others don’t see it, then screw them!

Medium, my 10 year-old son,  was recently diagnosed with type I diabetes. I hope to use this as an outlet to share my experiences with this awful disease and maybe help someone else who is on this journey too!

    Can’t wait to read your blog! I’m looking forward to the information you share regarding the diabetes. I know from our conversations that there’s a lot of misinformation. And, I think you are the perfect person to set the record straight! -Kim

    Don’t forget the “I hate Vegetables” part! That’s a very important part of what makes you you! You’re like the female Jay Leno.

  4. I’m a wife, a mom and my pancreas is dead. LOL. I’m type 1 diabetic, just like “Medium”. Loving your blog already!
    Read you soon!

    My 6 year old daughter was diagnosed around the same time as your son (Jan 23, 2012…Happy New Year, eh?). All of the posts I’ve read so far sound exactly like what I am going through, how I am thinking and I am feeling. It’s good to know we’re not alone. As another T1 Mom said to me: Welcome to the greatest club you never wanted to be a part of. Some of your posts made me laugh – thank you. I needed it this morning.

    • Krissy, I am going to have to steal that, “the greatest club you never wanted to be a part of”. How true is that? The only silver lining to this is meeting other people like you, whom I would never have know otherwise. Glad I could help in some small way! Thanks for reading!

  6. Are we FB friends? We should be —- hit me up! I can’t find you under Extra Large on FB. 🙂

    Welcome to the DOC! I don’t blog, just a reader of all the great d-blogs! I sent you a friend request on FB! My sweet one is my 11 year old daughter living with T1 since 8/21/08. Welcome to this journey that none of us chose. Choose to focus on the blessings and to me it’s all the great d-moms I’ve met!

    • Beth, thanks for the welcome! Another mom said, “welcome to the greatest club you never wanted to join!” So true! But I can already tell it is going to be better now the I have found the DOC. Thanks for stopping by my blog! And I will “see” you on FB!

    Mmm McDonald’s Diet Coke–yes! It’s not just the wide-gauge straws. Something in the formula.

    I’m so glad I found your blog!
