Wordless Wednesday

Technically it is Thursday at 12:17am – but since I haven’t slept I consider it still Wednesday. Just say’n.

This is Sugarboy – it was last night. I sent him to bed and promised to be up in minute to tuck him in. I got sidetracked and didn’t get upstairs for about 10 min. When I got there I noticed my boy was not in his bed – he was on his floor – in the same position he slept as an infant on my chest. I had all these warm fuzzy feelings remembering such a tender time. I miss the baby time with my kids – I would do it again if I could.

Then I noticed his shirt – It is the back of a JDRF walk shirt. I was confused for a second but I didn’t understand why. Then it hit me – In the time I took to reminisce about my dear boy as an infant – his blood sugar may be dropping. Maybe he didn’t make it to his bed because he is low. Why am I not testing him? Stop standing here taking pictures and get his meter – run!

Turns out his sugars were spot on – the thing is they very well could have been low. I hate that I can’t just enjoy the sweet moments of my kids without the elephant stepping on my damn toes. (BTW those are my toes – and yes my jammies have bubble gum balls on them)

Post Scriptum: I suck at wordless wednesday.

    Love the jammies!

    I know what you mean about the elephant and toes… Elise hasn’t napped in about 2 years. Lately, she’s been falling asleep on the sofa or retreating to her room and going to sleep at the same time Mattias goes down for his nap. My first thought is never, “FREEEEDOM!”, it’s always, “what if she’s low?”

    Hate that.

    I totally relate! When my T1 sleeps in for a change I wonder if I should wake him up to check his sugars! 🙁
