What not to say... the video

I couldn't resist. When I saw a similar video about things people say to the parents of multiples, I thought, "Somebody totally needs to do one for diabetes."

Then I thought, "I should totally do one for diabetes." So I did. First, I re-read the very funny post by Kelly Kunik, and the hilarious comments and incorporated some of them into the video.

I wish I had more time to make it better, but this finished product took me almost 8 hours to make; not 8 straight hours mind you, but 8 hours of me doing 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there.

So enjoy. Sorry Reyna, that I didn't incorporate any bad - er - colourful language into it. Little ears were listening. I was even admonished for using the word "stupidity".








For those of you who cannot see it on my blog, click here for the YouTube link.

  37. This is bloody brilliant! Thanks for sharing, love your blog. As a parent of a 6 year diabetic(diagnosed at age 2) I can totally relate.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That totally rocks! Where do I donate for a Cure for the Stupids?

    FYI, I belong to a group of type 1 diabetic endurance athletes in Dallas. It's too bad that most normal people can't run marathons. Maybe if they watched what they ate like we do... or ... ate that "moss" (LOL).

    Like I said, you rock. Peace.
