Day 173

Craig did an awesome job at the assembly in front of his whole school!! So proud of my boy!! 
He got pretty nervous though and skipped a lot of his presentation .. He kind of skimmed through it.  But, overall, he did great! I could never have done this at his age!!
I am so glad my kids are advocates.. They are fighters, not victims!!
 I truly believe YOU choose how to live with this disease..Its hard, and these kids are strong!!
Ya, they have their rough days, but overall, they fight through this disease.. And the help educate others on the facts of what Type 1 is.
Just the other day I had someone ask if Madi could have cake, but I did not have her insulin, so I said "no, she has type 1 diabetes, and I don thave her insulin"
 Their response was to tell THEIR child,  "If you  keep eating all that cake and candy, you'll get diabetes too!"

So many people have no idea what Type 1 is.. Just no clue at all.
