Oh great, it's Valentine's Day! I'm not worrying about getting roses or chocolate. I'm worried about all of the candy that gets passed out at school! To my great relief, though, the room moms do a fabulous job with providing some really healthy treats for the kids to enjoy! Some are so creative and cute, I just have to share them!
I have to say that it just melts my heart (no Valentine's pun intended) when people go out of their way to accommodate Kaitlyn's medical needs. Even though most of the treats -- even the healthy ones -- require an insulin dose, it means so much that others care enough to do what they can to provide a fun and healthy experience that Kaitlyn can easily participate in.
About the author: My name is Kim. My daughter Kaitlyn (the third of our five children) was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just a few years after my nephew James was diagnosed with the same disease. I'm excited to pair up with my sister-in-law, Jen, to share our story with you!
