"You're My Friend's Mom"

So I was in the hallway the other day, trying my best to avoid the Kindergarten line that was coming towards me.

The cute little girl at the end of the line stopped and turned to look at me and said, "Hey, you're Sophia's mom.  No, you're not; you're my friend's mom."

I asked her which friend that was, since I didn't recognize her as someone I knew Bean knew.

She was obviously thinking and couldn't come up with her name.  So after a couple of seconds she said, while motioning to her own arms, "My friend, the one with the things on her arms.  That one!" (making reference to Bean's CGM sensor and Omnipod)

I said Bean's name and she was excited that I knew who she was talking about.

She trotted along to rejoin her line and I went about my teacherly business of making copies with a big smile on my face.

Gotta love friends who have friends with things on their arms!! ;)
