Prom and Birthday Pictures

Holden had his prom a few weeks ago and I never posted any pictures. The theme was "Red Carpet Romance". All the kids walked up the red carpet and had their names announced while a valet (some of the dads) parked the car for them.

Holden and his date, Brittaney. They have been dating for 2 years now.

Holden and me.

Riley got two birthday parties. The first one was on Mother's Day. Then, he had a party at school on his birthday.

That night we went to eat at a Japanese Steakhouse. Riley probably averages eating around 170 carbs in a whole day. Well, Riley's meal was about 70 carbs. Then, because it was his birthday they sang happy birthday to him and brought him a muffin roughly the size of his head.

I thought he'd eat a few bites, but he ate the whole muffin which I estimated at 70 carbs. So, he had 140 carbs at one meal. He got 4 units of insulin. That is the most he has ever gotten at one time. His sugars did surprisingly well.

I was dying with each bite of muffin, but the grin on his face made it all worth it.

Diabetes doesn't keep Riley from doing anything. That includes being a goofball.

I love the pictures! Holden and his girl definitely won't be embarassed by their prom pictures 20 yrs from now. They look great.

I hear you on the carb load. Whenever we have one of those "special" days where there are tons of carb laden food, I picture the glucose rising the way the mercury does on a thermometer. And then I breath a sigh of relief because the running around keeps it from rising so high.

Riley is the cutest.
