- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My 5 year old daughter woke one morning low, so I gave her a couple of glucose tabs to suck on while I prepaired breakfast. She decided to go upstairs to wake her aunt who was visiting for the weekend. She woke her aunt and showed her the glucose tabs in her mouth. Her aunt asked her jokingly if she had candy for breakfast every morning to which my daughter replied, "Only on the mornings mummy says 'Jesus Christ.'"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go through a drive-in at Dunkin' Donuts and see the sign that said "High Curb" and you start laughing because you think it said "HIGH CARB." See more parent humor.
