Apparently, I was in a melancholy diabetes mood when I said this to my 7 year old son at dinner the other night:
me: Honey, you know that mom would take away your diabetes and give it to me if I could.
Alex: (expression of disbelief and panic) WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT????? I like my diabetes. I like myself just like I am.
me: Really? Well that's great but I would still take it away if I could.
A couple of silent moments go by........
Alex: But mom, if you would like to have it WITH me, that would be okay. Then we could both be in it together!
