  5. This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
    I work at a daycare center and all the kids were curious about my new pump. I explained to them that when I eat, I push some buttons and it gives me insulin, and that keeps me healthy. I told them that it was very important that I do this. After snack time I was cleaning up and grabbed a few cheerios to eat. Then when I went to play with the kids again, one four-year-old crossed her arms and looked at me sternly. "Erica, are you going to push the buttons or am I going to have to?" It was so cute that they were taking care of me!
