Yesterday marked 5 years since diagnosis. This was the first year that I was not a complete emotional mess all October, it was the first year I did not mark the occasion with tears. It was also the first year that Kaelyn really realized that Halloween was the day. Here's what we DID do:

-spent the morning hanging out at home
-went to the house of some new friends we met at our co-op and spent the night with 7 crazy kids in total eating pizza and cupcakes and trick or treating and eating candy and having fun!
- we also did a little educating as the 2 families were curious about how we handle things and manage- but it was awesome because they were curious without any preconceived judgement.  <bclap> <clap>

sounds like a great day!

I've given up on educating others.  Unless they genuinely seem curious and want to know.  Usually I just get a question or two and then after I respond, there is criticism.  So I just can't deal with that.
