Today I got to chat with super mom, Vanessa Messenger! Vanessa was diagnosed with T1D as a young adult at the age of 24. She is a hard working mother of TWO pandemic babies, one currently 15 months old and the other just a few weeks old. Whew! I'm tired just typing that! Vanessa is also a business woman and works as a product lead at everyone's favorite search engine, Google! BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE! Vanessa recently published an adorable T1D children's book entitled, Teddy Talks; a Paw-sitive Story about Type 1 Diabetes.

Vanessa's adorable and fluffy Pomeranian, Teddy, was the inspiration behind the book.

Bob Saget's Here For You

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
