    My son Connor, age 6, was diagnosed in April of 2005. Since his diagnosis we have kept a drawer of "free food" in the fridge that he can eat whenever he wants. A couple of days ago after playing in the snow, we did his lunch fingerstick, which was a little high. He was kind of quiet for a while, then on the way to his grandmother's he said to me, "Mom, is snow free?" I was confused until he followed it up with, "Because I ate a lot of it and maybe that's why my stick was high." Just another conversation I never thought I would be having.
