this past weekend my family was at my sister's house for my nephew's ninth birthday. it was fabulous (minus getting bronchitis) and fun.
friday night, we had dinner at a little mexican restaurant. see also: delicious and one of my favorite foods.
as everyone was digging into the chips and salsa, i got my meter out to test and bolus. my niece was sitting next to me and was very interested. i don't remember her ever being REALLY interested before, but she was just very aware that night.
niece: what are you doing?
me: checking my blood sugar.
niece: oh, is it a good number or a low number like last time?
me: it's a good number.
ummm and let's take a moment. my niece is four. four going on 13, but she is four. and the last time i was around her was christmas. and she remembers that i had low blood sugar at some point during that week? i don't.
kids brains are like sponges. seriously.
ps. i am getting better. thanks to everyone who has been asking. :) the bronchitis is making its exit. don't let the door hit 'cha.
