Welcome!

Welcome to a piece of our sweet journey of life. This blog is about our family life-- my husband, my type 1 diabetic kindergartner, my spunky pre-schooler, my newborn baby girl, and myself! Enjoy!

A flibbertigibbet, A willow the wisp, a clown

Today, how I feel about Diabetes is very similar to the lyrics of Roger's and Hammerstein's song "Maria" in the musical "The Sound of Music."

To get the gist of what I'm saying, I've reposted the lyrics here and I've replaced the word "Maria" with the unwelcome guest word "Diabetes."

How do you solve a problem like Diabetes
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down
How do you find the word that means Diabetes
A flibbertigibbet
A willow the wisp
A clown
Many a thing you know you'd like to tell it
Many a thing it ought to understand
But how do you make it stay and listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand
How do you solve a problem like Diabetes
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand
When I'm with it I'm confused, out of focus and bemused,
and I never know exactly where I am...
Unpredictable as weather
It is flightly as a feather
It's a darling
It's a demon
It's a lamb
It'd out pester any pest; drive a hornet from it's nest
It could throw a whirling dervish out of whirl
It is gentle; it is wild
It's a riddle; it's a child
It's a headache
It's an angel
It's a whirl (replaced the word girl)
How do you solve a problem like Diabetes
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down
How do you find the word that means Diabetes
A flibbertigibbet
A willow the wisp
A clown
Many a thing you know you'd like to tell it
Many a thing it ought to understand
But how do you make it stay
And listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand
Oh how do you solve a problem like Diabetes...
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand


(source for lyrics --minus the replacing of the word Maria)



Sound accurate?  I thought so.
