Just another day in paradise…

Middle of the Night Lows

So we have been fighting little S with eating. He just doesn’t want to eat again. He keeps telling us that his tummy has “owies.” You just can’t fight a toddler who has “owies” in his tummy.

But that leaves us with dropping sugars, and late nights.

Let me tell you a little secret. I love these nights.

Sure, they are exhausting. And I would prefer to sleep in my own bed rather than finally crashing on the couch next to my little guy.

But its snuggle time for just S and I. Time where we watch what he wants to watch. And time where he gets to be the only kiddo in the family.

So, even though I am exhausted, and even though I worry about the long-term effects of his crazy sugar levels, I am grateful for these nights.

I am a "domestic engineer" who enjoys dabbling in a variety of different artistic endeavors. I am blessed to be the wife of a wonderful man, and the mother of three handsome young men. These four men are the light of my life. Our life has a different set of challenges from many people, as we live the life of a military family, supporting my husband as he serves in the Air Force. The older boys are also Irish Twins, and are almost exactly 9 months apart. S was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2011, which has brought its own challenges. T was diagnosed with hypoglycemia in September 2012. We live a hard life but one we wouldn't trade for the world. This blog is a place for me to share our life stories, my creative experiments, links to various things that I discover online, and any random thoughts that I may have. Thanks for checking it out!

I love to hear what you are thinking!
