You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when ...

  1. In public your teenager announces they're high and you hand them a syringe.
  2. Your 6-year-old is given many colors of modeling clay and told she can create anything she wants and she chooses to make a meter, lancet and cotton ball for her diabetic teddy bear.
  3. Your laundry smells good because you accidentally washed the glucose tabs again.
  4. Your nine-year-old son pees on the toilet at 3 a.m., and you're not mad because now you can check his ketones without making him get up again!
  5. You end up with a drop of blood on the antenna of your cell phone during a 1 am blood glucose check.
  6. Doing math homework, in response to the question "Name three things that you use in your home to measure with and draw a picture of it," your 6-year-old son writes "syringe" and painstakingly draws a picture of it.
