      Just checked out your blog, loved it! Sweet kiddos. Loved your post on zebras. As a mom to 8 I am always watching everyone. I have one guy I really worry about. Any hoo, just wanted to say hi!

      We used to live down in Yuma, still have relatives who spend the winter there, and we adore Tucson, and have relatives in California. So, if we ever head southwest again I'll PM you to see if you're in our path. Right now, I'm with you, the thought of traveling makes me want to cry. And I love traveling!

      Just saw your post on the pump alarming -- do you mind my asking, what's your TDD? We're filling our reservoir to 100 and we have a TDD of under 10, with changes every 2 to 3 days I'm wondering.

      Great! We're in Florissant, but have inlaws in the Springs itself, so we can drive there and find a park if it's a nice day. Have you done Santa's workshop yet? Or the zoo? By holidays, you mean fourth of july, right? ;)

      We're near Colorado Springs -- well, kind of. If you get out this way, give me a buzz!

      Hey, I'm so impressed you're running with this. Wish I had the calm confidence in my judgment and instincts that you do. All the rest is icing!

      Hah!
      Looks like you don't think it's basals, but if you need to understand my ramblings Saxmaniac gave me the original advice and he explains things very well.

      thanx, he's out of cloth for the day, we do pockets at night. Baby Gemma is usually in prefolds and thirsties or bummis. It's so much cheaper! Plus we're big hippies so it only seems right lol.

      (part two! I talk a lot. . . )
      One of the first things our endo did is point out that you're going to run into health care workers that will freak out at the numbers your toddler regularly has. We got that the first week, a pediatrician who worried about numbers in the 300s and wanted to up the lantus based on that. Looking back, she really really didn't know what she was talking about, and we would have been in real trouble if we'd swallowed her advice. Anyway, we are doing so much better than we were before, her meter average is below 200 now, but IMHO with a toddler you are simply never going to get the numbers you'll see from some on this board. Just can't do it, no matter how good we are. But it does get better.
      Anyway, PM me if you'd like, although with your young kids I don't know how you'd have hands to type with! Have a great night.

      Hope you don't mind a note over here, too -- guess you struck a nerve!

      Just wanted to say I wouldn't worry about your endo yet. Ours had us on a very similar path at first. I think the deal is that with a little one they are so very concerned about lows, and it's so easy to send them too low. So they keep you very, very conservative. But when you have learned enough and get it enough, you tend to change the way you interact with the endo. Instead of asking what to do, you decide what to do and you "bounce it off" the endo or nurse. When you start doing this, they figure out that you have learned enough that you are safer and they loosen up a bit. Looking back, it really is all right to stay on the safe side for awhile, there's so darn much to absorb that if you rush it you wind up getting there later than if you pace yourself and accept that you'll get there when you get there.
