This afternoon as we were setting up the Christmas tree they asked about my insulin pump and wanted to know how it worked. I was asked why the tubing goes into my pants, it’s the little things that they like to ask about. Kate and I explained that if it got caught on something it could hurt daddy. I was then asked how it all worked, luckily I had to change my pump site and was able to show them how everything works and what has to be done.
The questions continued and each one was answered to be the best of our ability. A minute later the kids were more worried about the ornaments on the tree they had decorated earlier. Having a diabetes moment with my children and future wife meant the world to me. The more my children know about me and my diabetes the better.
