I have just about given up on getting a group pf grandparents to participate here - but I am going to give it one more try! What a great time to resolve to spend more quality time with your grandchildren - especially those "D" grandkids. Yes, it can be hard, but it isn't rocket science either. Taking care of a D child just requires diligence and the knowledge of how to handle various situations. Your sons and/or daughters will gladly instruct you on the proper procedures for highs, lows, etc. The actual instructions will vary from child to child and whether or not they are on a pump. Remember they are just a cell phone call away if you aren't sure of what to do. Mimi and I are going to host Emma & Brenden for the night of New Years Eve - heck, if you are like us partying is too much work and you will be home anyway. We are going to have a Kids' New Year party with decorations, noisemakers, snacks, etc. We will also have some other kids there until 9:00PM or so. I think it will be a blast!! Look for pictures in the next few days.
