I like how little kids react to my diabetes. “What’s that?” they ask with blunt curiosity when I pull out my pump or check my blood sugar.
“I’m checking my blood sugar and taking my insulin,” I say simply.
They look at me for a second and then say “ok” as if they actually knew what insulin is. They then promptly absorb themselves in their peanut butter and jelly sandwich for a minute before asking, “Are you going to eat a brownie?”
