Sometimes I think she's got it.

Watching the movie "Coraline" in 3D.
Saturday night we went shopping at the mall. Lainey loves shopping, much to Dustin's dismay. I don't mind a bit! Anyway, we stopped by Subway for dinner and about 10 minutes after we sat down to eat Lainey said, "Here Mom. My pump," unclips her pump and hands it to me. She made that connection that since she was eating, she needed insulin. Yay!
Then the other day, as we're checking Lainey's sugar, she looks at the meter that read 344 and said, "Oh. Lainey's low."
Sometimes I think she's got it.
Other times I know she doesn't.

She gets that those numbers mean something...and I bet she just confused the words. I am always surprised by how much they really do get!

Every time we check Cara's BG she says "what's it say" so I let her "read" the meter and she always says 7.8 points. I don't know why it is always 7.8 and I don't know where she gets the points from but it is so funny! BTW she is hardly ever 7.8. But she to is starting to get it, last night she came to me and asked me "why is my stomach upset" That is my clue that she has not eaten enough or she has eaten too much. So she is starting to listen to her body and understand the clues that it is trying to give! These little ones are just so amazing!

Zane does that too! I will ask him if he thinks he is high, low, or ok. He usually picks high or low. Sometimes he is right, sometimes not. :)

It at least helps them feel like they are participating.

Sometimes I think I've got it and sometimes I think I don't. Lainey and I have a lot in common. :-)

Thanks for introducing yourself! Avery sounds like Lainey...this morning she looked at me and said "Mommy, I think we need to change my basal.". Don't think she knows what that means but.....
Did you like the movie? I thought it looked good but haven't seen it.
Loved your other posts, too. God is good!
