The Stuff Kids Say

A week or so ago I posted over on our family blog about some of the funny things my little boy had been saying recently.  Yesterday my girls were sitting at the kitchen counter and they had a kind of funny-silly-sad conversation.  Something like this.

Me:  Kork, check your blood sugar.  it was time for dinner

Kork:  UGH!  gets out her stuff and starts checking
Stasia:  I'm sad that you have diabetes
Kork:  Yeah it sucks, I hate it! pokes her finger, does her thing, she's thinking, I can tell
Kork:  But I guess it's all right.  It's fun too, sometimes.  Like the Diabetes walk and Diabetes Camp.  That is FUN!  Yeah, I guess it's okay
Stasia:  Yeah, the Diabetes Walk is fun!  I like to go to that.  It still sucks you have to have diabetes though.

That being said....Our Diabetes Walk this year is November 3, 2012.  Tempe Town Lake.  On Friday the 2nd,  Kortnie had her Endocrinologist appointment, we'll be going down to The Valley (Phoenix Area) for that, staying the night and doing the JDRF Walk on Saturday.  Kork's 3 year D-Aversary is on November 7, so we'll be celebrating the weekend of the walk.  We'll probably hit up the mall and get everyone a new outfit, maybe a Christmas dress, and we'll go out to eat somewhere that Kortnie picks.  She and her sister are already planning on the carb-tastic, carb-o-licous Golden Corral.  Should be a fun weekend.
