Proud of my girl!

Okay, she may be driving me nuts with this sleeping issue, but I have to tell you how proud I am of how Elise handles her diabetes lately.

When it's time to check her BG, she runs to the sink so I can help her wash her hands. She also likes to pick if we're going to test her fingers or toes, and generally shows me the exact one she wants tested.

Same with her shots. When I tell her it's time, she runs over to the spot where we usually sit to give her the shot, and then picks which arm or leg she wants it in. And it's sooooo cute the way she says, " how 'bout THIS one!"

She also likes to check her baby's BG, and sometimes I catch her trying to test the dog too!

It makes me a little sad that she's had to grow up so quickly, but I am also filled with pride that she handles this disease with such maturity.


  1. Ahhhhh....heartbreaking yet happy :)

  2. what a smart little girl and I know you are so proud . I would be too if i were you . I think she will be just fine as she gets older my dear .

  3. Wow! That's amazing! Her awesome attitude is surely a reflection of her mom's! (At least her mom's attitude on the outside, right? And that's what matters! You are entitled to have whatever attitude you feel like on the inside!)

  4. She is so awesome! And brave! I am constantly amazed at the poise and maturity little diabetics have.

    Heck, I'M beaming with pride...and I haven't even met her! Hug her for all of us!

  5. Love it- love it- LOVE IT!!
    I know how you feel and it's awesome to see them taking charge in their own little way!
    GO Elise!!! :D

  6. I loved reading your post and am proud of you all! Elise is amazing.
