A family living well with type 1 diabetes.

The prompt: If you had a superpower — what would it be? How would you use it?

When I was a kid, my Mom could make it all better. Somehow, her hugs and kisses just did. Even if she really didn’t actually make it better — for me, just her TLC was enough to make me feel better. It is the magic Moms possess.

Kids want Mom when they don’t feel well.

Jenna doesn’t feel well when she has a high or low blood sugar. This means she doesn’t feel well on a daily basis. She musters through, sometimes without missing a beat and no one is the wiser. But other times, the glycemic ride from hell can knock her flat on her little scar tissued posterior. She wants hugs and lots of em. She wants snuggles with Mom on the couch. She wants a gentle voice telling her she is going to be okay. She needs to feel safe and comforted. And during those times there is no place on earth I would rather be than with my little girl snuggled in my arms.

Superpowers? I’m a Mom. I’m good to go.

Jenna had a low tonight at bedtime. I employed my ‘superpowers’ to help alleviate the symptoms. Also, three carb tabs.
