The kids LOVE candy. I know all kids do, but GirlMagine takes it to a level I’ve never seen before. When a patient gave her dad a few boxes of chocolates, she was very excited. They finally had the chance to open the boxes (I told them Dad had to be the one to open them.) She was taking all the padding and the papers out of the box when she reached the paper with the nutrition facts. “Briley, do you want me to leave this in here so that you can give yourself the right amount of insulin if you decide to have a piece?” As my knees were melting, I told her that would be a wonderful idea, and thanked her for thinking of me. I still have not had any of the chocolate, but I smile every time the boxes come out.

    That’s awesome! (and it shows what a good job you are doing teaching them about diabetes in a comfortable/normal way)

I'd love to hear what you think about my blog thoughts!
