It's a Small D-World

Ahhhh....I haven't blogged in so long, I think I may have forgotten how to do it! :)

Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with a local D-mom from Facebook (Hi, Jeanie!). We met with all the kiddos at McD's so they could play and the mommies could chat!

I have to say, I am amazed sometimes at what a small world it is - even the diabetes world! I found out that Adam and her little girl were diagnosed ONE DAY apart! At the SAME pediatrician's office! And they were in the hospital at the same time. How crazy is that? And we swapped stories about the kooky endo we saw in the hospital. :)

It is always so nice to sit down and chat with another mom who "gets it." We both agree that there are so very few people in our lives who get what we and our kiddos go through every day - and what they'll go through in the future and why we worry about it! To be able to sit down and talk and just nod your head in agreement to what the other is saying is priceless. Sometimes I feel like Facebook and social media is just too much...but then I think how great it is because it brings people together in ways that they never would have met otherwise.

After our lunch, we walked out to the parking lot...and realized we both had the exact same SUV, right down to the color! I think it was destiny that we met up, don't you think? :)


  1. Other D mamas make the best friends!!! :) Those are some serious coincidences! Destiny indeed! :)

  2. Sounds like a wonderful meet-up!!! Good to hear from you.

  3. That is crazy-awesome! Not an accident that you two found each other. Nothing better than a D mama meet up!

  4. Gotta love IRL diabetes friends too!

  5. Good grief-that is amazing! I'd say you were destined to meet! : ) D, or No. ; )

  6. Glad to know I'm not the only one ignoring my blog! : ) Seems like I'm always playing catch-up.

    LOVE the top picture of Adam on the blog. HYSTERICAL!

    And so cool about seeing the dad with a pump. A definite blessing!

  7. OMG i just look at when he was dx's and it TEN days befre i was. TEN!!!!!
