When dd started summer music a few weeks ago she sat down in the hall waiting for her class to start. I was going to check on ds so I said, "Do you need to check your bs?" She said no so I said ok, and went to check on my son. When I came back I chatted a little with the girl sitting next to her. she seemed quiet so I asked like what grade are you in and isn't dd's bookmark weird, etc. Then dd says to me, "E has diabetes." I was like NO Way! Really? Then I notice her tubing and asked about her animas, etc. What are the odds that the first kid she sits next to in the hall is the only other kid in town entering middle school, like dd, with diabetes! Well they hang out everyday and have become fast friends. The girl actually went to preschool with dd's best friend so the 3 of them hang out and have a blast. Small world. Small town. I ended up getting the girls last name and looking up her number and cold-calling the parents, like "You don't know me but our kids are friend from summer music and I was wondering if she could come over." the dad clearly thought I was nuts. and then I said, "dd has diabetes," and I could actually hear the smile on his face. Suddenly we were old friends. BTW, E's mom, if you are on this board, give me a shout out.
