- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
When my 5-year-old daughter, Danielle, was diagnosed with diabetes we explained it to her and her 3-year-old brother, Ben, that her blood sugar could be high, low or in the middle and we were trying to keep her in the middle by giving her insulin shots. A few weeks later we took both of them to get their flu shots and Ben started screaming as loud as he could to anyone who would listen, "I am in the middle! I am in the middle!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go through a drive-in at Dunkin' Donuts and see the sign that said "High Curb" and you start laughing because you think it said "HIGH CARB." See more parent humor.
