We went to lunch at Chick-fil-a and Jo showed me how she manages Elise's diabetes in an over-the-top, control-freaky, anal-retentive way. Just kidding! She was great! She showed me how to weigh Nate's food and figure out the carb factor which is actually quite useful at this age. While Jo and I will probably will end up doing things a little different from one another we promised not to judge each other and always help and support one another. I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship for both me and for Nate. He seemed pretty crazy about Elise!! :-)
Here are some pics that Jo snapped today at the rec center . . .
Wait! Joanne brings her scale to Chick Fil A?! Joanne...I love you! You are a freak...and that just makes me like you more!
I gave Joanne some heck because it kinda does look like Elise is strangling Nate...but seriously...Nate totally looks like he's pulling her hair...so it's all good. :)
YeaH!! that is really cool to have some one there who can relate!! No matter how many people you tell, unless they do it everyday they will never understand!!
I haven't ever really thought of weighing the food, I will have to look into that. We measure things by the size, and then the size of our fist. Cool, how peeps do things all different.!
Meri - I bring Elise's scale EVERYWHERE! I am such a freak that I weigh everything she eats (well, everything with a carb).
Plus, Elise is learning fromt he best when it comes to dealing with boys... how do you think I snared a great guy like Fred? We don't call that strangling, we call that an "extreme hug".
