When You're Invisible Illness Isn't as Invisible As You'd Like
It's hard to believe it's been six months since I last posted!  Life seems to have this way of speeding up and before I know it, it's JULY!  Wait... What?!? We have been going along and doing our thing just like always.  Diabetes is a part of our lives.  Bu...

Merry Christmas! I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday!  We have a had a lovely day and Christmas Eve! Diabetes, however, was not quite so lovely!  I was up until about 4 am waiting on low blood sugars to rise.  Ugh!  However, I used my time to write ...

Her Story, Our Story, Your Story: It's Time to Change the Ending
What is it about some people that just grab our hearts and don't let go? There are just some people and some stories that have that way about them.   For me, and for many others, Kycie's story is one of those.   I'm not sure why exactly.  But I think it's b...

Look Out First Grade... Here We Come! It's hard to believe that this year is already over!  I already miss the kiddos so much!  I know they will do a great job next year in First Grade!  So exciting!

While I was up treating lows last night, I wrote my own version of "The Night Before Christmas".  Diabetes style, of course!  Hope you enjoy it!

Laughing All The Way
"If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane." - Jimmy Buffett Isn't that the truth?  Sometimes it's happy and joyful laughter.  Sometimes it's more maniacal.  But at least we're laughing! We've doing a lot of laughing since I posted last!  I'll let you dec...

Traveling With Diabetes: Planes, Cars and Disney Monorails

SPACE: Our Final Frontier
We have been working so hard over the past quarter learning about SPACE!  To begin our space unit, we listed things that we wanted to learn about space.  Most of questions centered around the planets, astronauts, and the milky way!  We decided that we would...

Field Day
Field day was SO MUCH FUN!   We tied dyed tshirts in art class!  Each class was a different color.  I added the names once the shirts were dry!   We wore our shirts all day!  One of the first activities we did was puff ball races!  We couldn't use our hands...

I'm not a doctor, I just play one in real life!
Introduction
I am a wife, mother, teacher, blogger and so much more!  

I am married to my wonderful husband, Jason, and we have one amazing little girl!  

I am a Kindergarten teacher and love working with "my kids".  I think Kinder is the best age and grade!  I love to see all they learn during the year!

I am a D Mama.  This means I have a child with Type 1 Diabetes.  My beautiful little girl was dxd with T1 on April 27, 2009 just a few weeks after turning 3 years old.  That day changed all of our lives forever.  We work hard to raise her as a happy, healthy, normal child who does not let her disease hold her back.  

I am a Board Member for the Southwest Ohio chapter of JDRF.  I work with outreach, mentors, and government relations.  I believe strongly in working to find a CURE for Type 1.

I am a blogger!  I write a diabetes blog called The Princess and The Pump (www.theprincessandthepump.com).  I chronicle the experiences of our family as we live and love with T1 D along for the ride.  I also write a blog called Together an Ocean (www.mrsaddingtonskindergarten.com).  This is my classroom blog.  I keep track of all our fun and learning on this site!

I'm also a crazy person who runs from dance lessons to cheer practice (where I actually coach!) to gymnastics and more!  I love being involved in my daughter's life and she loves keeping busy!  But also really know how to kick back and relax - especially if thee is a beach involved!
