Better Blogs

The following is a ‘blogroll’ – basically a list of awesomeness. If its listed here I read it – some more often than others. Why does it matter if ‘I‘ read it – it doesn’t – but you should. Sadly I’m not very organized so neither is this list – basically type 1 adult blogs (no not THAT kind of adult) are mixed with blogs written by parents of 1 or more kids with diabetes, there are also blogs written by those living with Type 2 or LADA. Basically we are all in this together and so are our blogs. – oh and for good measure I tossed in some other chronically fantastic bloggers that deal with other elephants.

    Hey, thanks so much for adding me to this list! 🙂

    As a middle child, I am deeply offended that Middles is stuck with the nickname “middles”. That’s a cop-out, chic. Next you’ll be giving all your christmas elves to Sweetstuff. Jeez

      The kids chose their own blog names. I asked Middles if he wanted to change it but he hasn’t decided. I don’t use their names so that they aren’t embarrassed later in life is someone googles them. Sweetstuff will not be getting all the elves. Currently there are only 2 elves. Im guessing the kid that takes me in when Im old and need my diapers changed will get the elves.

    I like how you organized this! Very clever.

    I’m looking now for your DSMA ‘Rents live episode. HELP.

    • Christina says:

      You should have seen it now after Meri posted it on FB. I really don’t think I shared my episode on my blog – likely a combination of feeling unworthy and hating the sound of my voice. I didn’t ask why you asked. I hope it is because you too will be on the show and perhaps you wanted to know what not to say. ;P
