- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
As I was dropping my daughter off at the mall to hang with friends, she announces that she forgot her pen. As we were making the round trip to go back home and get the pen and return to the mall, a friend calls her on her cell phone. I hear her say "I forgot my pen and we are going back home to get it." Pause. "You know my insulin pen." Pause. "My insulin pen. I need my insulin pen." Pause. "YOU KNOW, MY PANCREAS! I have to get my pancreas."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your six-year-old child announces that she didn't get high at that party and you know exactly what she meant, but the person next to you just looks at the two of you with a concerned face. See more parent humor.
