A Snapshot in Time

This little girl stayed over at my neighbor's house for a few days one summer, and we spent a lot of time together. The neighbor's and the little girl's parents wanted to go out one night, so she stayed with us.  She was captivated by my diabetes, so I explained everything I did before dinner time.  I poked my finger, gave my shot, and she was intrigued by it all.  I guess I've been an advocate/teacher a lot longer than I thought :)

  1. Yes, you have!
    I occasionally catch my 4 yr old son teaching his classmates about his diabetes. In a way that only a 4 yr old can.
    It makes me proud and sad all at the same time.
