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!
