Close, but(t) not close enough.

“My mom?  She has brown hair and a red shirt,” said my daughter’s playgroup friend, climbing up the jungle gym.

“My mom is over there.  She has a pump in her butt,” my daughter pointed towards me and waved, causing me to quickly answer the look of surprise on the other parents’ faces with a brief, panicked explanation of the insulin pump connected to the top of my left hip.

  7. My daughter is five now. She’s been going to day care since she was a baby. On the first day of “school” every year, I tell her teacher that I’m diabetic, just in case my daughter ever decides to tell her class that her Daddy shoots up.

    Kids. They have a way of phrasing things…
