That is what I am!! I am officially in the middle of my very first freakish mom moment. It started about a week ago and will hopefully come to an end tomorrow, I can’t wait!
I have noticed that Cole is amazing, but he is also quirky! I am not by any means complaining, but he sleeps a lot. Like more than you think a kid his age should. He literally sleeps between 15 and 16 hours a day. He goes to sleep between 6 and 7 at night and wakes up between 7 and 8 in the morning, then he takes a three hour nap during the day. Add to that his insaciable thirst and the fact that he pees through ALL the time and now I am afraid of diabetes.
I understand that all of this could be and usually is totally normal. I know that the chance of him inheriting this terrible disease from me is possible, but not a given. I know that having a two year olds blood drawn is not easy. I know all of this, but I am doing it anyway! Today, Cole and I went to the lab and he got his blood drawn for the first time. Tomorrow we get the results of hopefully his last A1C for a very long time! I have to know, I have to stop thinking and analyzing and worrying about my little man. So, tonight I hope I sleep. And tomorrow things will go back to normal, whatever that normal is.
