    Kim has a new stall tactic at bedtime - finger pokes! :cwds:

    Last night I was trying (unsuccessfully) to get her to settle down, we'd been through all the usual tactics, bathroom, water, another book, the "right" stuffed animal, and she announced she thought we should check her blood! :)

    Well - her numbers had been rock solid all day yesterday and she had a very nice bedtime reading about an hour earlier so I was pretty sure she was fine - but since she was asking - I was happy to oblige!

    At least now I know the finger pokes are not as bad as having to go to bed! :p

    Have a great Friday everyone!

    Boy, she must really be desparate!! I remember those days, and thankfully for me, that was pre-diabetes. My son is almost 11, and my hat goes off to all of you with younger kids who deal with this!

    That's a great story. I would have done the same thing! (Heck, I'm almost 30, and I think I still use that as a "stall tactic"! Hah hah hah!!!)

    Beep Beep!

    My 21 month old will grab the kit and run up to me and go "Beep Beep!" then climb in my lap and hold out her finger! I have a feeling this won't last! Darn cute though.
