She CAN Eat That, Too

D-Mom Blog Cookies

I recently told you that my daughter can in fact eat Girl Scout cookies. So the following over heard conversation was amusing to me.

We were at a Girl Scout gathering and the girls sat down at the table to eat their lunch of pizza, carrots, and grapes.

Q needed to test her blood sugar and did it in front of all the girls right at the table. The girls who are in Q’s class are somewhat used to seeing her test, but some of the girls always look in awe and ask if it hurts.

As the parents were doling out the food, the girls started asking her questions about what she can and can’t eat.

Girl 1: Can you eat candy?

Q: Yes, as long as I have insulin for it.

Girl 2: Can you eat ice cream?

Q: Yes, as long as I have insulin for it.

Girl 3: Can you eat chocolate?

Q: Yes, as long as I have insulin for it.

Girl 4: But can you eat gum?

Q: Yes, as long as I have insulin for it.

Girl 5: But you can’t eat sugar.

Q: Yes I can. As long as I have insulin for it!

Q: I could even eat 120 carbs as long as I have insulin!

Yay Q! It’s so hard when everyone thinks they know better than the person who lives in the body, especially for our little ones, glad she is so confident 🙂

Rylee always answers “The only thing I can’t eat is poison”
