Two posts in one day and neither one about diabetes.
So I was scrolling through Facebook and I land on this link to the RDJ Experience. Look basically anything with RDJ is going to make me stop scrolling. What? Like any of you would scroll by Tony Stark without stopping, pleeeeeaaaase.
Basically Robert is offering folks a chance to come hang with him at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. And hey Tony – don’t beat yourself up too much about Ultron – how could you have known. We all make mistakes even when we think we are doing our best.
I totally and completely expect to win but just in case I don’t I would love to see one of my friends walking the red carpet with RDJ. So here is the deal – go to this link – don’t get too excited when RDJ calls you his honey bunny – take a deep breath and clink on the ‘Enter To Win’ tab. Donate a few dollars and then sit back and wait for your invitation to the show or wait for my epic tweet of a selfie with RDJ. My biggest problem will be choosing which of kids to take. They will need to draw straws. Sweetsfuff assumes it would be her but I think she will be at diabetes camp at that time. Both of my boys would look totally badass (that was for you Katy) in tuxedos. Sadly Chad will need to stay home to parent what ever kid I love less, but I’m certain he would totally approve of me allowing RDJ to Awesome the crap outta me.
So where is your donation going – to Julia’s House.
‘Julia’s House is a children’s hospice charity dedicated to helping life-limited children and their families. The nurses and caregivers at Julia’s House provide life-changing support for parents and their children both in the hospice and in their own homes. The majority of those children are unlikely to live beyond the age of 18, but thankfully Julia’s House is there for them year-round, offering emergency respite and overnight care during treatment and offering emotional and practical support at the end of a child’s life.’
So basically even if you don’t care to hangout with RDJ – you can still chose to support Julia’s house.
As a parent of three kids with Type 1 Diabetes I have thanked my lucky stars many times over that my kids ‘only’ have diabetes. My kids will live. My kids will thrive. There is nearly nothing my kids can’t do because they have diabetes – except right now Sugarboy is breaking my heart because all he talks about is being an astronaut and honestly I don’t know how he ever could since he can’t be in the USAF and I’m thinking NASA is out too. Totally breaking my heart and I don’t have the heart to tell him. If only he had an Ironman suit.
Sorry I digressed – again there are many things worse than diabetes. I have mentioned before that when Sugarboy was diagnosed we were in the same hospital wing as kids battling cancer. I had coffee with parents who very likely never took their child home. Diabetes is a total SOB. I would take it from my kids if I could. Still I am thankful my kids have incredible full lives ahead of them. Sadly the families who seek help from Julia’s House can’t say the same of their kids. Anyway – please consider donating to Julia’s House and if you happen to win the grand prize and you don’t want to go you can totally give it to me. Again – HERE is the link.
