This coming weekend is Mother's Day, of course, so we've got mothers on the mind. Personally, I'll be celebrating the Bat Mitzvah of my second daughter — one of a Jewish mother's proudest moments ;)

Meanwhile, we wanted a peek into the real lives of mothers caring for kids with diabetes —the hardest, hardest job, and one that certainly requires a sense of humor aside from a boatload of strength and resilience.

Since no one on our team is a mom of a D-kid, we turned to fellow blogger and advocate mom Lorraine Sisto to help us out with a D-mom version of the "Sh*t Diabetics Say" video, along the lines of that series.

What came back were lots of moments I could surely relate to — especially the hugs and kisses.
