About me

My photo
I am a stay at home mom who is raising twins. One of my guys has type 1 diabetes and one does not. I am writing this blog to unite type 1 parents or twin parents. Comment on my posts or in the "what's your high?" and "what's your low?" to join the community of parents just trying to do the best we can!

We won!




D Connections!

I feel so lucky sometimes to live in this world of technology and also with my wonderful community of parents raising kids with diabetes. 

Today, the two worlds combined and in ten minutes my life was made happier! 

Here's what happened:

A wonderful DMom put up a post on Facebook asking if anyone knew where she could get a certain kind of "poker"/lancing device. I was so excited to see my old friend in the picture. 

We used this one when Rocco was first diagnosed at two. When it broke we used many others but he started complaining that they hurt. I tried to find our favorite kind but they had all been replaced by the newer versions. Eventually we got used to a different kind (multiclix) but we both have been sad our old friend had retired. 

But, alas!! Facebook saves the day again! 

A great DMom posted that she could still get them. She sent a post on FB and said she would send one right away. I noticed she was from Alaska! How cool is that!? 

I quickly added her as a friend so I could send her my address. 

Wow! That was easy! 

I was so grateful and I wanted to thank her. At first, I thought about her sending a thank you card. Hmmm.. Do I have stamps??? An e-card? Too impersonal.. But then I remembered Starbucks lets you email e-cards to people through email! 

So she sent me her email after insisting that I didn't have to and said she understood once these kids like something to make this life easier that she was just happy to help. 

So I launched my Starbucks app. Paid thru PayPal. And just like that. Posted a gift card to her Facebook page! 

In between loads of laundry, I made my little guy happy, made a new friend across the country and sent a thank you gift! 

I did a little happy dance as I switched the towels from the washer to the dryer! 

The world is so cool sometimes!!! DMoms can do anything! Thanks Kristina! 💃💃👫
