I have "Cookie Breaks" with my grandchildren. Many times we talk about my Graves' Disease and my TED. They know they can ask me anything and I try to answer. We have cookies and milk and we color my cartoons while I try to explain my condition to them. For my younger grandkids, those under nine no problem. This is the only way they know me. I have a nine year old grandson who thinks he has the prettiest Nana in the world....makes my day. For the older ones ...well they sometimes have a hard time seeing the changes and the big black eyes after eye surgery. We also have had our Cookie Breaks over the years. I have always had "Cookie Breaks" with my children . This is our time to talk about anything and everything. Some times they tell me a little more then I want to know,lol
So, what better thing in the world then a "Cookie Break"? I am still working on it, so if you have any ideas let me know. I already send out Thyroid Cartoons for kids. They are far and inbtween. Let's unite them for a "Cookie Break"
Beware of those that hates the laughter of a child"
