Diabetes-Speak

Elise is becoming more and more verbal these days. She also likes to make up her own words for things. Socks are "mei-meis" (the Portuguese word for sock is meia), a bird is a "guk" (because, according to Elise, that's the sound they make), water is "maw" (I have no idea), and my husband's favourite cheese that he eats practically every day is "Poppa-cheese". I believe that one is self-explanatory.

Lately, when I've been checking her BG, she refers to the spot of blood as a "bim-bim". I'm not sure why, but it's awfully cute. Sometimes after I've wiped the blood away, she'll notice it's still bleeding and hold up her finger and say, "bim-bim? Bim-bim?"

Unfortunately, she still calls the shots, "owies".
