- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
After dinner one night, I sent my 9-year-old son to wash his face. I had noticed a large dot of ink on his forehead and told him to be sure to wipe it off as he washed up. At 8:00, my husband sent the kids up to get into their pajamas and told Jimmy to wash the dot off his forehead. Jimmy came back downstairs for his nightly Lantus shot. He was in his pajamas, but still had the dot. I had the syringe in one hand and the alcohol pad in the other. Deciding he was never going to clean that dot off his forehead, I proceed to rub at it with the alcohol pad. His eyes widened in horror as he shouted, "MOM! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" I explained about the dot. "Oh", he said with relief, "I thought you were going to give me the shot there! I know it has two cheeks, but that's my face." Guess where he gets his evening shot?
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your child is playing a video game and when the "life force" level starts running out she says "Oh no! I'm low" and then starts laughing hysterically and says "I need glucose tablets!" See more parent humor.
