In our house, these are everywhere.
We find them in our beds, mixed into the sheets and blankets.
They travel into the laundry and sometimes, into the lint vent.
I have discovered them at the bottom of our shower or under the sink.
Some follow us outside and sink into our car mats.
Once, we found one in the parking of a Target, except that one wasn't our brand.
It has become a game to us. Kinda like finding a needle in a haystack, except it's not.
What it really is?
It is the proof of having two kids test blood sugars about 16-20 per day, every single day for the past 8 years, leading roughly to 46,720+ painful needle pokes on tiny, child-sized fingers, in order to know if they are managing blood sugar and properly doing their life-saving insulin.
Yes, we really need a cure.
