You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when ...
- You go to tell the person in front of you that their pump tubing is hanging out, only to realize that it's the headphone wire connected to their iPod.
- You drink too much coffee in the morning and when you say, "Wow, I have to go to the bathroom again!", your 5 year old looks at you and grins and says, "Mom, are you getting diabetes too?"
- You're the only mother at playgroup chasing around your 3-year-old yelling, "If you don't come eat these jellybeans right now, I'll put you in time out!"
- Your son gets a bloody nose and you reach for the glucose meter to check his blood sugar.
- You find parts of syringes in your son's room and he is now using them as swords and grenades for his action figures, after throwing away the needle part, of course!
