    My son Travis has a friend at school whose mom has T1 D. Well, Joey invited Travis overnight tonight for his birthday. Joey's mom was totally cool with having him stay. I was thrilled that Travis could have this normal boy experience. Then, get this, she asked me the other night if Kylie could come stay, too. They have a daughter a little older than Ky that plays with her on the bus and she wanted Kylie to come. Kylie was thrilled. So right now my 2 D children are at a sleepover.

    I have tears in my eyes because Kylie has already been asking if I could train this friend's mom or that friend's mom so she could go to a sleepover sometime. You know as well as I that that is a hard thing, and I have chosen to not ask anyone (except family) to be trained if they don't want to be trained. I want them to ask so I know it's what they want. Some people just don't want to do it and I don't want to place them (or my child) in a bad situation. So for this mom to have both of my kids is so huge and amazing to me.

    And, the best part? They live a mile away so if there is a problem I can be there pronto!

    I am a bit anxious but I will try to enjoy this rare experience! My oldest is out for the day with his grandparents and so my DH and I are going out to eat for our anniversary (which was last week) tonight!

    Anyway, isn't our neighbor so wonderful to do that?

    Don't worry, it sounds like all the kids are in great hands.

    Enjoy your night out! What a great neighbor! I wish we all lived closer together , we could get a babysitting co-op going:cwds:.

    You're lucky to have someone who's wanting to get it.

    Yes, God bless her!!!!!!!!!:D

    It's a blessing to know she is near anytime you need an "emergency" sitter, too.;) Hopefully you never NEED that, but...........:cwds:
