I've been reading so many posts about how we try, try, try. Don't be so hard on yourself. After five years as a D parent I think I have the right to say EVERY DAY IS A DIABETES DAY. As frustrating as it is to admit, this is what we need to remember. We do the best we can do as parents. 10, 12, 14, 16 finger pokes a day. Black finger tips on the ones we love the most. Our babies forever. Whether we're dads (like me) or moms, we do everything we can to keep our D kids safe and healthy. We do the best we can do, there's nothing more we can do than the best we can do.
