Emma's been a "smart-cookie" since day 1. She'll sit there and figure things out all by herself and hates to have others tell her how to do stuff. And that spills into her D management. She's been checking her BGs by herself for years now, giving her own injections since she was 5 and just like yours, absolutely LOVES getting positive attention for the good job she does. She'll sit there and calculate her carbs and remembers all the factors to multiply at the given time of day and will let me know how many units she needs. I always double check her work because this is not something to joke about, but it's nice to know that she CAN do it in case something happens.
