It's really interesting how interested children can be with diabetes. I think that it is really important to give children the chance to learn from you and that is what I always try to do whether I am working at the daycare or babysitting.
Today I babysat three young boys and it was an awesome experience. They were a lot of fun. When it came to supper I went through my daily routine and it was so interesting listening to them and watching their reactions. The youngest said, after I pricked myself, "Can I have a booboo too!" but of course I wasn't going to check his sugar! I think that their curiosity towards my diabetes is amazing and I can't wait to let them know more about it.
A lot of people don't know about diabetes and I try my hardest to teach the people around me no matter how old or how young. I will never ever stop educating people about the disease that effects so many people.
