Meet Super Mama: Stefani Bellows!! Stefani is one of my dear friends that I love following on social media because she always has the best mom life ideas. She's going to tell us some of the ways she survives summer with her 4 kids at home. She's also going to give a glimpse into her life as a mother of a type 1 diabetic daughter.

"When she was diagnosed we told her, 'You can do anything you want. it's [diabetes] not going to stop you from doing anything in your life at all'.....

"You just have to live your life and have a good attitude about it, and stay positive....It builds character and she's a better person for it."

- Stefani Bellows

"There's some days I just cry. Not because I'm feeling sorry for her or anything. But just as a mother. It's just so hard to watch your kid do something that hard." - Stefani Bellows
