I just had to share this funny story with you all!
Last night, while my husband and I had dentist appointments, we were sitting in the office room waiting for the doctor to come back in. Lenny somehow starts talking about teeth falling out.
So, we go into the story about the "tooth fairy" with him, and explained to him that she gives him money for every tooth he looses!
Without missing a beat... the first thing out of his mouth was:
"Money that I can donate for a cure??"
This little guy, he never ceases to amaze me!
We told him that if he wants to donate his money to a cure, he can. Or he can use it to buy a toy, or save it, or do whatever he wants with it... its his money!
Earlier in the visit, as he was talking to the nurse and doctor while I was getting some dental work done, out of the blue he told them that he has diabetes. All I could do was smile. I am so proud of him for being willing and brave to tell even perfect strangers that he has diabetes!
Now, for my exciting announcement!
We have a new project launching soon, right here on Sugar Free CandyLand!
We will be interviewing one D-mom, (and dads!!!), as well as adults with Type 1 Diabetes! We will feature one person living with Type 1 every Thursday, so be sure to drop by and check out what other parents and adults with Type 1 have to say!
Would you like to be interviewed, too?
