Mommy Nerves

I've got a serious case of the "Mommy nerves"! I have a date with my husband tomorrow....yep a DATE! We haven't gone out with friends since Kacey was diagnosed almost a year ago. Whenever we meet up with friends, we do it with kids in tow. We're going with 6 other couples to a comedy club in Va Beach (an hour and a half away from home!). I'm super nervous about leaving Kacey. Why do I have to be so darn overprotective of her? I mean, I leave her all day long at school and she's fine. So why am I so nervous? The girls are spending the night with my mom and this is also another first in the last year. After Kacey was diagnosed, I haven't let her stay over night with anyone. I think it's moreso because I don't want to "burden" anyone with the 2am sugar checks. So tomorrow is a big day for all of us! I'm scared because if something happens, I'm so far away and can't get to her right away. I know she's in good hands and Kacey is pretty "diabetes independent" now, so everything should be ok. We've not had any crazy lows so that shouldn't be an issue...but you NEVER know! Kacey is really excited because she misses staying at "Nae's" house. Just another milestone in our life with diabetes!

I'm so excited for you!!!! That sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!! I can't wait to hear all about it :)

When we had our date a few weeks ago, text messaging was a lifesaver. I didn't have to worry about the phone ringing and disturbing other patrons with a phone call in the middle of dinner (not to mention that there was a band and it got loud towards the end of the evening)...just those handy handy text messages! Thank goodness, Kelly, new how :)

I'm sure it's going to be awesome...she'll manage just fine!

I'll be praying for your mommy nerves tomorrow night! So glad you're able to get out and have some fun with Frankie and your friends! I'm sure you and Kacey will both do great!
