    I have, his name is Steve. He's my hetro life partner :) he doesn't leave me alone though, follows me everywhere...

    He only leaves me alone when I go for a bath though, he just doesn't get the hint any other time.

    Anyone else named theirs? :D

    Hello switch2501.

    I am sure we had a thread with the kids/parents on this topic ages ago...

    Will rummage and see if I can find it :think:

    A suggestion I made was calling a little boys pump ' Hero '
    For obvious reasons - he was a hero and the pump was too :thumbup:

    I call my diabetes - 'Thing' - [honestly!]
    Will say , whats this thing doing/ what is thing up to now/wonder where thing is at now ? [my BG level]

    Anna.
