World Diabetes Day!

This was our 1st World Diabetes Day, we weren't quite sure what to do for it then the random idea of the hubby and I getting blue ribbon tattoos came to mind! He was totally up for it (as he is for any tattoo) I was pretty scared but thought if my child can be poked with a needle 1500 time in 1 year I can be poked a few thousand (not really sure exactly) for a tattoo honoring her...but then it hit me you're pregnant you can't get a tattoo!!! Well there's always next year for me! Hubby went ahead with it and his sister took my place and got one honoring Alivia too. Here's the hubbys... And here's his sisters, hers is Alivias initials and the dot of the j is the World Diabetes Logo...

Its nice to find other moms going through the same thing! My 3 year son Avery was diagnosed May 19th of this year. Its all still pretty new! I had to click on your blog when i read the comment about the nuggets. I just laughed to myself because its so true! I found myself today telling Avery "FINE! Dont eat the rest of the apples if you dont want but eat your carmel!!" My name is Wendy and I hope you dont mind that I found myself on your blog. Im also starting to center my blog around diabetes as well. Maybe we can talk sometime.. Thanks!
