    I tried for the second time to bolus my non-D daughter :rolleyes:.
    Since we use the Omnipod, the PDM isn't connected to Blake.
    I'm standing there as she eating popcorn trying to bolus her
    and I can't figure out why I'm getting a communication error lol.

    You think she would say something but instead she just held out her arm like she sees her brother do to get the "pod" closer to me.

    When did you know your brain cells were on a downhill slope?

    Haha, I've tried to bolus my non D kids, too.
    One day Joey (non-d) was home sick. Julia had been home sick the 2 days before that, and Connor had been sick before her. I now had it along with Joey, and after several nights of taking care of sick kids I was exhausted.
    I served Joey his soup, and then said the carb count, and he was looking at me like I had lost it. Finally he says "ok, why are you telling me the carb count? Do you think I am Julia, or something?"
    The brain that I came with has too many glitches. I've always known this ;)

    Too Funny! Sounds like something I would do! When I am home during the day by myself I sometimes find myself figuring up the carbs in MY lunch and then think to myself, "What in the world am I doing that for?". Just in that mode, I guess. :rolleyes:

    LOL! I think it's even more hilarious that she was lifting her arm like he does!

    Yeah... I've asked my non-D kiddos, "Have you checked? What's your number?"

    Between 6 kids and D (lack of sleep), I have no brain cells!

    I learned that my brain cells were on a downhill slope when I tell my non-D son the carbs in his food and how much insulin he needs to take to cover it..

    Duh mom, wrong kid..:rolleyes:

    In brainless moments, I've said to my non-D's, "let me see your finger", as I brought the meter to them. They usually run screaming from the room. :D

    If it makes you feel any better, I went to the grocery store in my slippers the other day. YEP, all I needed was rollers and a ciggie dangling from my bottom lip and the image will be complete. :D

    I do things like that too.

    I will test my blood sugar and then get my pump and just stare at it because I can not remember what to do.
    I have also had to look at the history to see if I even gave myself a bolus.
