May 12th, 1996, Mother's day. The day I was welcomed into the world. May 12, 2012, the day I turned 16.
My 16th birthday came and gone over the weekend and we had so much fun. My mother got a hotel room on the Las Vegas Strip and me, her, and two of my friends hung out for some supervised fun! We hung out by the pool, we shopped til we dropped, we ate, we shopped some more, we people watched, and other fun things. There was one thing that was almost microscopic the entire weekend.
My blood sugar.
I carried around my little wristlet and checked when I felt low, ate when I needed to, and kept going. It never really screwed with my head to much, it was just faded into the background. The one time it did come up in the conversation was when I was counting the carbs in an oreo brownie and Maddy asked me about it. I was floating in the 60's and wanted to make sure it would be enough, normally I wouldn't have been to picky about it, but it was midnight and it was like a mile walk from the arcade back to the hotel room (slight over exaggeration) and I didn't want anything to happen during that time period.
Now that I'm 16 I can get my driver's license and I am super excited! I take my test Tuesday. I'm excited to drive, but nervous to have that much responsibility especially with the way my body has been treating me these past couple of weeks. But never the less I am excited and ready for the challenge. I guess I'll figure it out as I go.
Keep your head up and happy Mother's Day,
