- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son Thomas is 11 years old and has had diabetes for 9. Recently he was asking about the early years and was it hard to take care of a toddler with diabetes. As I explained about the "honeymoon period" he commented that it was then that he and diabetes got married. Quickly he followed up with the comment, "Maybe someday we'll get divorced."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you you ask your child how their day at school went and instead of saying "fine" they start rattling off blood sugar numbers.s See more parent humor.
