- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Every night at the dinner table our family asks what each of our "highs" and "lows" are (meaning best and worst part of each of our day). Going around the table we each tell of a typical thing, until we get to our 8 year old who was diagnosed 5 weeks prior. She starts laughing and states that her high was 554 and her low was 75 (her overall highs and lows during her 5 weeks of the diabetic world). Only a family with type 1 would understand.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when 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!" See more parent humor.
