  4. 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.
  5. You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when the stray dog who has parked himself on your deck has only been there 10 minutes and already has a test strip attached to his fur! See more parent humor.
