This blog is about caring for my 9 year old daughter who has diabetes.

Sometimes it's just that one extra thing in my life that can make it all seem like too much to handle. Not everyone understands that it may be just one more little thing, but that one more thing is on top of a huge mountain named Diabetes.
The one extra thing for me right now is the end of the school year. The end of the school year in our school is busy, and that is stating it mildly. This goes for both students and teachers. I'm a teacher and both my kids are students so, we are all over extended right now. Field trips might be the END of me this year. We have, what I consider, a ridiculous amount of them at the end of the school year. I have a really hard time with this and am wondering how all the rest of the D moms handle field trips. It's a little trickier for me because I am a teacher in her school, but not at her grade level, so our field trips are not the same.
I am wondering if the rest of you moms out there go on field trips with your diabetic kids, or is there someone on the trip specifically for your child?
In the past, I have been able to make my own accommodations for field trips, but for various reasons that is getting harder to do.
I am in a unique situation here, but I am trying to figure out what the standard is for diabetic kids and field trips.
