About Me


I'm Antoinette. I'm a wife, mom, professional.  I love to create, tinker, meet new people, do fun things and enjoy life. I have an incredible and supportive husband with a great sense of humor and two boys.  My oldest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes right before his second birthday.  

This blog is about me, how I manage the ups and downs of type 1 diabetes and how we manage to still have a great life.  I am a creative engineer deep down.  I look at everything as a challenge or problem to solve. I always find a way. My son calls me "a tinkerer," no doubt from watching Tinker Bell.  I hope you like the blog, and get some good, fun ideas for how to have a great life with T1D.  Maybe you too, will start having fun tinkering!
