    Our youngest group of campers at Camp Koral Kids in Coral Springs, Florida are 5 and 6 years old, but have the wit and wisdom of adults. Diabetes education is an important component of camp and we try to incorporate it in all we do. When quizzing the little ones on diabetes concepts we get all kinds of great responses, but the best one by far was their response to the question of what we check for when our blood sugar is above 240. Their group response was "PEE-tones"! Kind of sums it all up, huh?
  31. You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you find a quilt that comes in blue or red that would go perfect in your child's room and you automatically pick the red one because it will hide the spots left after middle of the night blood checks. See more parent humor.
