- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
One evening during the dinner rush, I asked my diabetic 4-year-old Emma to get the twins some Cheerios so they would stop crying. The crying didn't stop right away, and when I looked over at the twins in their high chairs, they were really frustrated and mad. Emma was sitting just out of their reach, meticulously measuring out their Cheerios into bowls with a tablespoon. She wanted to make sure they "weren't eating too many carbs, Mommy!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your non-diabetic children run around with used infusion sets hanging out of the waist of their pants telling their diabetic sister that they just changed their sites. See more parent humor.
