D-Teacher is In
Aaak! Tomorrow is D-day I get to teach Brenna's preschool about d-care. I have too much information at my fingertips. I hope I don't scare them away. I got some great advice from parents on my CWD email that I subscribe to so I'm going to use it. I'm going to keep it mellow tomorrow and get Brenna's routine set up and let her play with the kids while I talk to some of the teachers. I want to stress that we do not expect perfect numbers and that it is difficult some days to see really good numbers in a 3 year old. The very very basic stuff is if she's low - feed her, if she's high -- give her insulin and/or have her run around. If she's acting wierd -- poke her finger and treat her. If for some reason you can't poke her pretend it's a low and if it's not we can fix it later. Wow. So much for my 12 page instruction booklet. I just hope I can figure out how much to reduce her basal rate for play time while I'm with her there so we all don't have to worry so much about scary lows while they learn the basics. Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.
