Paging Dr. Taylor

Ok, so the hubby was recently diagnosed with DIABETES.. We are all making changes...ie, the hubby is coming up with some unique hiding places to hide his cookies...anyway, our 5 year old is with us all the time (he's the only one not in school, yet), and has watched since the begining the whole Diabetes regime that my hubby goes through..So much that now when it's time to check hubby's blood sugar level..we page "Dr. Taylor"..our 5 year old comes running and
a)get's the "pack" that contains hubby's diabetic supplies
b)gets out the "pen" and puts in a new poker
c)gets the alcohol pad out and "washes" daddy's finger
d)while he waits for daddy's finger to dry, he loads the meter
e)after daddy's finger is dry, he then "pokes" daddy's finger
f)then he put's the meter to daddy's blood ~~ewww~~
g)before daddy can hide what the meter's said he so cutely call's out 300, or some other high humber...cookies that hubby's been cheating with, remember?
AFTER THAT THERE IS STILL THE SHOT TO BE GIVEN
soooo.."Dr. Taylor"
1)goes to the fridge and get's daddy's insulin
2)runs back and give's it to me to warm
3)get's the needle out and ready
4)take's his beloved alcohol pads out and cleans the insulin bottle
5)While I hold the bottle he put the needle in (not joking) and draws the insulin
6)then he gives it to me and yell's at his dad to "ROLL OBER" 5YO speak for roll over
7)he disenfects the area and then I give the shot
PRETTY SMART FOR A 5 YEAR OLD HUH?
oh, and he get's really mad if we don't call him DR Taylor....I can just imagine the angry phone calls from girls fathers when he's a teenager and tries to play "DR Taylor"
