Beautiful banner courtesy of Denise!
This Thursday is extra special for me. This Thursday is July 13, and on this day 6 yrs. ago, my son Joshua was born. He's got this personality that reminds me of the energizer bunny. He just keeps going, and going, and going!! He also has the most gorgeous blue eyes, I've ever seen. He's got the best of both worlds, I tease my husband he's going to be a computer/jock...He's a whiz on the computer, and he's great at sports. He loves to play baseball, and basketball, loves to bowl and golf.
1.) The day he was born I needed to be induced. The pain was very intense, and I got the shakes really bad, my husband thought I was the exorcist.-2000
2.)He learned to walk on Mother's Day,2001! Right to me!
3.)He is the pickiest eater! The boy can eat P,B&J sandwiches everyday of his life! He hates mashed potatoes or any potatoe for that matter, except potato chips.
4.) Like I said he's a whiz on the computer. One day my husband came home, and asked me why I had downloaded so many free video games from MSN...Wasn't ME! He figured it out at
3 yrs. old!
5.) He inherited my husband's clutzy gene, if there is such a gene to describe the boy has two left feet. And has absolutely no depth perception. Like in the movie Shark Tale, he could trip on air!
6.) Did I mention he amazes me on how he handles dealing with being a diabetic. He checks the carb count, and knows how much insulin to give himself, at 5yrs. old, the nurses are even amazed at his school.
7.)He reminds me of Dennis the Menace. Getting into trouble, but I can't get mad no matter how hard I try!
8.) I ask him who loves him, and he always replies, You do Mom! Then I ask him, If I love him Just a Little! And he tells me No, Bunches and Bunches, and then gives me a big squeeze!
9.) You can tell Diabetes doesn't slow him down. Sometimes I ask God why he didn't send me a child who wasn't always going. A child like my oldest who was so much more calm and not as restless, with less energy!
10.) 2 of the Funniest things he's come up with are
His BloodSugar was High, and I asked him if he was Sneaking Potato Chips, He tells me NO, he only touched the bag! If you can believe that!
His BloodSugar was High at school, and the Nurse asked him Why! He tells the Nurse, My mommy forced me to eat Sugar Cereal! Like any child has to be forced to eat Lucky Charms!
11.) When he was born, I thought something was wrong with him. He was pure white, I thought he was either an albino or a ghost! Now he's a blondie, and starting to get a nice tan! Don't know why, but his nickname was Casper for awhile!
12.) There is no love like his. He always likes to cuddle. He gives great hugs and will give a kiss now that he's in 1st grade under protest, but tonight we went shopping , and he held my arm.
#13 I'll post a pic tomorrow of him after his Party!

my nephew was diagnosed with diabetes at 18 months. That was long ago back when you needed a urine sample to test for sugar levels. We had to wrinbg out the diapers to get the sample. Needless to say he was cup trained quickly.
Tim was so brave. I've be giving him his insulin and I would cry and he'd say, "It's okay Aunt Maribeth, It doesn't hurt at all."

Happy Birthday to Joshua!

I love potatoes! :) But, when I was little, my dad said we were going to have mashed potatoes and I said, "I don't want potatoes, I want French Fries!"

I hope you all have a lovely day!
