2. "So, when do they grow out of it?"

3. "As long as they don't have any sugar everything's fine, right?"

5. "Daddy (Mommy), my pump's beeping!"

6. "Ouch! Ouch!"

7. "When's the last time you and (enter spouse's name here) went out for dinner/went away/slept through the night?"

8. "Daddy (Mommy), I hate diabetes."

10. "Dad, (insert child's name here) is acting weird!"
