    I forgot the chapter on: How I got T1 Diabetes from eating too much sugar & I will never get to eat ANY sugar ever again!!!!

    or maybe that should be followed by: How I am a D child & I still get too eat candy & how everyone looks at me like I have 2 heads. And shame on my mom for letting me feeding my all those sweet tarts, gummy savors & glucose tabs.

    Oh boy, all this is surely something to look forward to. :D Mine can't talk yet, but how about "Getting sick on 3rd week after dx as if mom and dad don't have enough on the plate already! Since we're learning, let's also learn about having diabetes during an illness!".

    I actually think all the kids gang up and read that. I think that might be chapter one LOL.

    on a serious note, hang in there. It's not easy that soon after dx.

    Telling Mum halfway through basal testing 'I forgot, we had an hour of exercise at school today.'

    Or when 20mins away from school 'Mum I left my diabetes bag at school.'

    Chapter 105: Another way to get stares in the grocery store - Start discussing carb counts with your 5 year old.

    Under the Celiac section of that chapter: Use your cell phone as you are shopping to ask every company if their item is gluten-free.
    Do a dance in the aisle as you discover another cereal (Corn Chex) is now gf.

    What about a chapter called "A Million and One Places to find a Used Test Strip".

    And then there is the "Mother of the Year" award, when someone overhears you say to your child at a party...."why don't you eat just the frosting off the cake before you have the ............(pizza, hot dog, or other nutrious lunch food) served at a birthday party. :)
