So Cheered Up.

“How about something that is cheered up and happy?”  She pointed to the image of the dark blue make-up bag I was considering buying from Amazon to serve as a new meter case.  “That’s boring.”

“Good point.  What would you prefer I use?”

Her tiny Bird-brow furrowed.  “Maybe something with a face.”

Which brought us to this:

I’m an adult, with a job and responsibilities and a health condition that requires plenty of strokey-beard moments.  I like meter cases that can hold all my junk without busting at the seams (glucose meter, lancing device, test strip bottle, extra lancets, a quarter to unscrew the battery cap on my pump, an extra AA battery, and an insulin pen).  Regular-sized meter cases don’t do it for me, and I usually sub in a make-up bag or a pencil case.  Until recently, I preferred makeshift meter cases that were basic and black, wanting my diabetes supplies to be housed in something innocuous.

Which makes my new meter case such a departure, because I’ve never had a supply bag that outright grinned at me all day long.  I was reluctant at first, but now I like it.

“See, mawm?  It’s all cheered-up!”

So cheered up.

    SO CUTE! I would totally carry it! Maybe you can help. My 9 yo old son is T1 and there is quite the shortage of cool bags/cases/whatnot for boys. Ooodles of fun prints for girls, but all boys get are boring blue or black. I’ve googled, amazond and etsyd till my fingers cramped, and just can’t find a cool solution for an OmniPod using rockstar 9 year old!

    Any suggestions?
