Silent Night
By Barbie Paulsen [ barbie AT smaalders.net ]

Silent night, basal check night
Faces lit by the pump's green light
There'll be no sleeping for mother or child
Whether the numbers are wild or mild
Sleep, good heavens, what's sleep?
Sleep, I wish I could sleep.

Silent Night, full moon night,
Parents quake at the sight
Numbers rise and then plummet and fall
We try hard to keep track of it all
Will it be better by morn?
I hope it's better come morn.

Silent night, regular night
Do a test by the pale night light
Meter and strips are right there in their place
No sign of waking stirs my child's face
What is all of this worth?
Good health is what it's all worth.

Meter (Dreidel)
By Barbie Paulsen

I have a little meter
I use it through the day,
When finger's done with bleeding
Then dreidel I can play

Chorus:
Oh, meter, meter, meter
I use it every day
And when I'm done with testing
I throw used strips away (Hah!)

I have a little meter,
It counts down really fast
And keeps a steady record
Of when I tested last

--Chorus--

I have a little meter
I take it everywhere
But when I need to use it
Sometimes it isn't there

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
By Jane Hunsche [ k22301 AT hotmail.com ]

I want a cure for Christmas.
Santa that's my only prayer.
I don't want toys or money,
Just take away my shots this year!

All of the other children,
get to eat the cake and pie.
I have to check my glucose,
praying that it isn't high.

Oh what joy that day will bring,
when I hear them say,
"Diabetes is no more,
finally we've found a cure!"

So please find a cure for Christmas,
then I will shout out with glee,
with all of the other children,
"THIS DISEASE IS HISTORY!"
