    After recently buying "Mary Poppins" on DVD, our 6 kids went around singing all the songs. Well, John, our pumping 5 year old son had to put his own twist on "A Spoonful of Sugar." His version goes:
    Just a bolus full of insulin makes my sugars come down,
    sugars come down,
    sugars come down.
    In the most painless way!
    I think he may have had some help from his 3 older sisters but now I can't hear the song without singing his rendition.
