Recently I read a Pinterest article advising how to manage a clean home. Days of the week were provided with clear cut tasks designed to maximize effectiveness of maintaining perfection.
The article made me laugh. As a mom within a busy household, there is not an exact science to managing T1d.
Each day brings out our inner 'MacGyver' as we fly by the seat of our pants in a world that can be unpredictable, weird and even scary at times.
So tongue in cheek... Here is my Betty Crocker look at T1D - Pinterest Style.
On Sundays, I secretly change lancets.
On Mondays, I use my ninja skills to add extra fruit snacks to their purses, so as not to be yelled at for invading their privacy.
On Tuesdays, I make sure we have enough juice to power a NFL team to a winning Super Bowl.
On Wednesdays, I sift through the endless paperwork and make sure we aren't missing homework, appointments or projects so I can write apology notes for being absent-minded after sleeping only four hours over three days.
On Thursdays, I restock the kitchen drawer and add in a vial of Motrin for my migraine and a bottle of Tums for the over-stressed Naturally Sweet dad.
On Fridays, I prep for weekend sports by creating a careful balance of sugar, protein and foods that may actually be eaten with less of a frown when one goes 'low' and needs to stop playing.
