I Don't Know How We Managed That

This summer royally sucked as far as Brendon's numbers go. We saw numbers in the upper 400 to 300 range on a regular basis....just about daily. I don't think a day went by where there weren't those kind of numbers in the mix. There was a week where his numbers ranged from 490 to no lower than 300.

He had some blood work done for his last appointment to see how his cholesterol was doing and they did his A1C at the same time.

I had been convinced all summer that his A1C would be in the 8 range. Completely convinced and so I became at peace with it because we did the best we could. Sometimes you just have to let it go and be at peace.

When we saw his A1C on the results sheet it was:


I'm friggin happy about that right now.

Hey Look! A Gray Hair!

Jessica (6 years old): Is pot illegal?

Me (in my head): DOH!

Me: Yes. It's illegal.

Jessica: What is pot?

Me: It is a plant that people dry up and smoke like a cigarette.

Jessica: Is it sometimes called weed?

Me (in my head): Wha the fuuuu???

Me: Yeah.

Jessica: Is it a poison weed?

Me: Yes. It's poison.

Jessica: Does Nana have any of the poison weed?

Me (in my head): Whaaa? LMAO.

Me: Uh, you know. I don't know.

Jessica: Why aren't cigarettes illegal?

Me: Because tobacco isn't illegal and too many people make too much money off of it.

Me (again): Where are you getting these questions from?

Me (in my head): And why am I getting the munchies?


I turns out she has seen commercials about "It's never to early to talk to your child about drugs". I will remain calm and openminded about questions that pop up.


Jacob (5 years old): What does illegal mean?

Me: It means if you do something that is against the law then you go to jail.

Me (in my head): Why not just cut to the chase with the kid.

Jacob: I want Brendon to do something illegal so he goes to jail. And then he'll have to work in a restaurant.

Brendon (8 years old) (Laughs): That would be so cool to work in a restaurant!

Me: What!? No it wouldn't!

How They Found This Blog

Note: Brendon's first day of school went well. I received a call from the nurse saying he was a 60 after recess. She treated with a juice and after that, his numbers were awesome. In fact, all of his numbers were awesome yesterday.

Now for some interesting terms people Googled that led them to my blog:

  • wife wants vagina stretched
  • 10-4 rubber duck
  • coneechiwa
  • diabetic feminin itch
  • moms saggy ass
  • guys saggy ball pictures
  • men in feminine hygiene ads
  • i hate shannon lewis

And then some others that have something to do with diabetes.
