Sending kids off with friends...

I was thinking today, as my Superhero is off spending the day with Kris and her Sugar Bugs, that sending a D kid off is SO much different than a non-D kiddo.

I know this is no shock to most of you, but let me explain what I am thinking.

If I were sending my non-D kid off with a friend, it would most likely be HER friend. A friend of HER choice.

On the other hand, with my D kid, I tend to choose MY friends for him to spend time with. These are not HIS choice, though he always has a blast with them. Sending him off with a friend of HIS choice would scare me to no end.

I am sure there there will be a day that he wants to choose who he hangs out with. 

Until then, I am SO thankful to have some friends that he loves too.

And hooray for YOUR friends that are willing to take on a child who has diabetes, or add another to the mix! A blessing for sure!
