I was watching "The Land Before Time" with my four year old grand-daughter, Kayla, last weekend. Kay was diagnosed with diabetes at 17 months. She asked me, "Grandma, why did the dinosaurs die?" I replied that they probably did not have enough food. She thought about that for about a minute, then replied, "Well, they took their insulin, didn't they?" I laughed through my tears!
