I never thought my five-year-old daughter would use diabetes to her advantage. One day after lunch at the mall, I treated her to an ice cream dessert. I wanted to have a little taste of it. I asked her if I could have a few licks, hoping she would graciously share. Instead she said, "Mom you'll mess up the carb count!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go into the bathroom and find your 3-year-old son peeing into a Dixie Cup, and when asked why, he looks up at you and replies, "Well I have to test my peetones." See more parent humor.

- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
On two recent occasions, my son has taken "vacation days" from diabetes, skipping insulin on those days. How should I deal with this? I am concerned he will start to do this more frequently.
