Why not sing it out, sing it proud this holiday season! Singing songs with your children is always fun and if you get to both acknowledge the presence of diabetes and laugh at it a little at the same time, so much the better!
By Alissa Levenberg
Sung to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree”
…Oh A1c, Oh A1c, we’ve tried to stay in range
Oh A1c, Oh A1c, so it seems very strange
That when I download from her Flash
I see the spikes and then the crash
Oh A1c, Oh A1c, you shall this Mom derange
By Barbie Paulsen
Oh, meter, meter, meter
I use it every day
And when I’m done with testing
I throw used strips away (Hah!)
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
By Jane Hunsche
…All of the other children,
get to eat the cake and pie.
I have to check my glucose,
praying that it isn’t high.
