“Creativity comes in all shapes and forms, so take this where ever it leads you. Write a diabetes poem. Create some D-Art. Record a vlog. Write a diabetes song parody. Scrapbook, collage, sew, knit, crochet . . . . use your favorite creative outlet to create a diabetes project!”
My daughter can be a really creative child. I often tell her she is going to be an engineer as she has a gift for thinking outside of the box. I have become accustomed to her insanely creative thoughts and projects.
“Mom, why are bananas yellow?”
Me thinking- (Oh no not these questions again. Can’t she ask me something about the human body?)
“Mom, there’s a chemical in bananas that face them to the sun and then they turn yellow.”
Me- (Really? Is she pulling my leg? Well at least she can answer her own question. That was simply a test on my daft knowledge of spectral colors.)
After school she will pop into the car with knitted or crocheted headbands, hats, purses, flowers, doughnuts, eggs, birds, magic wand holders and whatever else she decides to whip up that day. I even have memories of a crocheted bathing suit appearing in a kitchen fashion show. Just give her a ball of yarn and the sky’s the limit!
Wala! A crocheted Insulin Pump Pouch with an over the shoulder strap and a T1 embroidery. Very sweet.
