It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve written a new post! I promise I’m still around… Just trying to still figure out how to manage our “new normal” with the twins. 🙂 (Who are already ELEVEN weeks old!!)
We recently made the decision for me not to return to work. By “recently”, I mean a few weeks ago. It was not an easy decision, even though for as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a stay at home wife/mom. But once it could finally happen, I was scared to death. All kinds of questions kept going through my brain…
What if my son misses his friends at daycare? What if he gets bored? What if I end up neglecting him due to the time consumed by the twins? Will I ever sleep again? What if my blood sugar drops when I’m home “alone” and there are no adults around to help? Ugh, thank you, diabetes, for managing to work yourself into every aspect of my life!
But it’s a reality. And in those first few weeks home, there were lots and lots (and lots) of lows. More than once, I would be feeding one (sometimes both) of the babies and would have to ask my five year old to bring me my tester and glucose tabs. One of the times, I had to have him count out my tabs for me. Thank goodness he can count! And to keep it interesting, he chose to also count in Spanish. Lol
Talk about a humbling moment, folks. And one I don’t like to happen…. But again, it’s reality.
The BG’s are finally starting to levels back off. My A1C is better than it’s ever been (“thanks” to those aforementioned lows) and he hasn’t had to count out uno, dos, tres tabs for me lately. 😉
