I'm often amused by the things my kids say. I think that's common among most parents. However, I've realized there are some things that are said in our home, where there is a diabetic kid present, that may not be said in other homes...let me share some of our funnies with you. Hope they give you a chuckle.
~Morgan to mom, "Mom how many carbs are in my shirt?"
~Sydney to mom, "Mom I think satan made carbs because he likes to see me get poked."
~Morgan to Sydney, "Syd you have to share with me. I know where your shots are. I will poke you." --I know that sounds demonic, but she really is a sweet kid.--
~Sydney to mom, "Mom do people in China have diabetes or does their pancreas like Chinese bodies more than American bodies?" ---Ummm....what? I'm pretty sure diabetes doesn't discriminate based on race, creed, or color.
~Morgan to mom, "Mom does Grandpa Dan's horses have to count the carbs in their hay?"
~Morgan to Sydney in a taunting voice, "Sydney I'm gonna catch you and check your blood sugar."
~Morgan to mom while I'm checking Syd's blood sugar, "Mom if she has to eat somethin' then I wanna eat somethin' too!"
~Morgan to mom, "Mom I want diabetes so I can drink juice in bed too and so I can eat as much as Syd does."
~Sydney to mom, "Mom I think I'm high because my blood is telling my mouth that it's really thirsty."
~Sydney to mom, "Mom how come it's not good for me to be high?"
~Sydney to Morgan while they are playing barbies, "Mo do you like being high?"
Morgan answering her, "Ya I fink [think] I like being high."
Syd's reply, "Well don't cause that mom of ours will get you with a needle if you're high!"
~Sydney to mom, "Gosh mom, if you would just learn how to take the carbs out of my grapes then I could eat more of them!"
~Sydney to mom, "Would you just not watch me for one minute!"
Mom with the slanted, quizzical eyebrow, "Why?"
Sydney with the little-girl eye-roll, "Cause I want a cookie but not a shot. Close your eyes so I can hurry up and grab one!"
Morgan to mom, "Mom I'm low."
Mom, "Morgan you can't be low, you don't have diabetes."
Morgan,"But I'm hungry and I want to eat something though!"
