Living with Type 1 Diabetes

Another Type 1 Holiday Tune

Earlier this month, we gave the song “White Christmas” a Type 1 diabetes makeover, with new lyrics dreaming of a new endocrinologist. When we posted that bit of holiday fluff, we challenged the Type 1 community to come up with their own diabetes-themed holiday songs.

One brave soul heeded our call, and found a way to substitute “Santa Claus” with a high-carb holiday favorite. Here’s how he did it:

“Here Comes Vichyssoise” (sung to the tune of “Here Comes Santa Claus”)

Here comes vichyssoise*
Here comes vichyssoise
Cream and taters again
Should I bolus so I can eat it
Or instead abstain?

Carbs are slinging,
Glucose swinging,
Can’t get my insulin right!
Hence my balking
At Christmas meals
For my fasting overnight.

Best,
John Dillon

*Vichyssoise is pronounced vee-shee-swahz.

If you would like to bathe your child every day, cut back on bath time (no more than 10 minutes), and avoid harsh soaps and bubbles, which can be drying when they remain on the skin. Use lukewarm water and a mild, unscented cleanser only in the places that need washing. Your childs pediatrician or dermatologist can recommend a good brand.
