Superpower Day ~ HAWMC, Day 3

Today's Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge prompt is one of my faves, asking, "If you had a superpower, what would it be? How would you use it?"

Like many of my fellow DOC peeps have already written today, it is not a matter of "if" when it comes to having a superpower. As a d-mom, I am already super-powered.

I can...

count carbs in virtually any food, on the fly

poke a straw into a juice box and hand it over to a low child while doing multiple other tasks simultaneously

survive a day at work after performing half a dozen nighttime blood sugar tests on my flu-suffering child

speak an entire language made up of diabetes terms and lingo

identify trends and recognize patterns in my child's diabetes data

count by 4's like a rock star (gotta love dex)

distribute a handful of dex tabs to my child withouut getting completely covered in sugar dust, even when he's on the ice or bouncing on the trampoline

advocate and fight tirelessly for my child

I am a(an)...

awesome external pancreas

bolussing bonanza

carb counting magician

and SWAG'ger extraordinaire

All in the day of a d-mom
