    I got a kick out of those! Kids – they say the funniest things!

    My daughter (now 5) told me she filled her water bottle up to 10. I said “10 what?”, she responded, matter of factly, “quartsinacup”.

    Just made me grin.

    Adorable! My two-year-old, who is in the testing his limits phase, will absolutely not touch Daddy’s pump, but offers to kiss the infusion patch because he knows it’s a “hurt.” He will also ask to touch the buttons, which, on occasion, he does. Nobody can bolus like a toddler.

    My 3 year old niece, Avery, says to me every time I pull out my pump, your medicine Aunt Karen, let me see, can I push the button.

    It is the only time I feel special about having diabetes. :)

    My almost two year old has been fascinated with my pump for awhile now, but I was a little surprised by how observant she is. The other day, I was changing my site for my pump, and I tossed the site serter on my bed. My daughter picked it up, lifted up her shirt, put it against her tummy, and started pressing buttons. She then took my old, back-up pump off my bed table and clipped it to her pants. She insisted on wearing “her pump” all morning. I just pray that she never needs one for real.
