I don't want to tough it out

This morning I was trying to rally the troops for a trip to the mall so that we could get Isabelle's glasses adjusted (among other things) and Isabelle was giving me a hard time about getting ready. She kept coming up with excuses as to why she couldn't get dressed. Among them were: She was Little Creek (the friendly Indian from Spirit), she was Baby Spirit the horse and she just didn't want to go bye bye. She finally came up with what she thought was the winner. She told me that she was dirty (she had a bath before bed last night as usual) and needed a bath. My reply was that we didn't have time for a bath, we needed to go. She of course tried to argue with me about how dirty she was and how much she had to have a bath. I told her that she wasn't dirty and she would just have to tough it out. Her reply, "I don't want to tough it out. I want to tough it in." I just couldn't contain my laughter. :)

Hi Lisa,

I saw your comment on "My Son Has Diabetes" and figured I'd come visit and say hello :)

I'm a stay at home mom as well and my 7 yr old son has had diabetes for four years. I can't believe it's been that long....I still feel like it's only been a year. I have a 5 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son as well.

Your kids are the cutest!

Diabetes management had been a challenge in the beginning, but now it so seamlessly blends into our lives thankfully. It's not to say I love it though, LOL.
