I started blogging back in 2008.
Before I blogged- I scrapbooked.
I have been scrapbooking for years and each of the kids have 5 complete albums of special events and holidays from birth to age 8. They are absolutely beautiful (if I do say so myself- and I just did!)
However, the older they got...the busier we got. It didn't mean I stopped taking pictures....I just didn't have the time to scrapbook them anymore. (running joke with my family is "if I don't take at least 50 pictures at any given event"- it's like it didn't happen) So - long story short, I started blogging- as a much easier way to display our memories of special times and events for years to come!
I didn't start blogging as a D- Mom. My daughter, Kaci was not diagnosed until July 28, 2009. Even after she was diagnosed- I didn't consider myself a D- Blogger. Diabetes is not who we are as a family- or even who Kaci is. It is just a little part of our family and of her. So- while occassionally my posts will be consumed with Diabetes anger, frustration or the like- more often than not, they are just filled with my " random thoughts" on our daily life.
However, in the last year or so- I have become aware of the many other D-bloggers and D- Mammas out there in Blogland! So today- I wanted to share with you the links of some of my favorite D-Blogs.
(this is a picture of me and Kerri from Six Until Me! So excited I got to meet her at the Type 1 NOW Conference in Austin, Texas.)
Go and check them out. You won't be sorry you did. On any given day- any of them can make you laugh or cry. They will all make you feel connected to them in a special way. They will all make you feel like you are not alone with this crazy, day to day D stuff!
