Rock Star

Last night was loooooong.

I asked Lydia this morning if she knew that I changed her pod during the night and she said, " I put Lammie over my face, so I didn't hear the funny noise". I thought she was snoozing. Even when I gave her a shot. She doesn't miss a beat.

I also said that diabetes stinks and she said, "Mama, it is okay to have diabetes". Shame on me.

I have said it so many times, but the girl is a trooper. The days that I wake up in a fog (which is most) and feel so tired, she is tired too. She doesn't sleep well when her blood sugar is 400 or 70. I cannot even imagine what it must feel like when her numbers are not good. I like to get caught up in poor pitiful me that stays up to midnight most nights and gets up again at 2am. It is not about me though. Yes, I'm her pancreas, day and night, but I'm only tired. She is tired with so much more. Y'all, I'm not just saying it because she is mine, but she is something and it is something impressive! This mama needs to take notes from her three year old.

Lydia, You are a rock star!


  1. Y'all are both ROCK STARS!!! I'm praying for you today. Love y'all!

  2. Yes, Lydia is a rock star and so is her mama! I have a lot to learn from both of you :)

  3. Kristee, she has a precious heart like her mama! We all can learn from you both! God has given you so much joy and love for your little girlies and it shows :) she has learned by example and her example says it all! Praying for you today :)

  4. I am amazed at the both of you. The Lord knew you needed each other. You make a great team, you and your sweet trooper of a girl. Thinking of you.

  5. wow. yes, ya'll are both rock stars! she is such a trooper, and yes, it is ok to have diabetes!! trust me, i know! :) and no, it doesn't feel good when your numbers are off, but hopefully as the years go by, it will get better and better! she will understand what she feels like and what it means and be able to help you help her!

  6. Sweet Girl! What a great heart and how wise she is. You are a wonderful mother! please let me know if i can do anything. Just around the corner. If mommy wants a rest, i am sure Herreson would love two beautiful little girls to play with. Call me anytime. Seriously!!!
