 enjoying her childhood more with tight control on the pump than on looser
 control on MDI.   She does every activity that she enjoys and she eats
 everything she wants and when she wants.  And she feels alot better than
 she did on MDI with a 7.5.  Her only compromise for feeling good and tight
 control is that she tests her blood 5-7X a day.  She seems to be happy with
 that compromise. >>

As long as she is happy and not having hypos you couldn't ask for more :)  
Problems can occur if the child is grossly unhappy or is having lots of hypos.

Hats off to all you wonderful parents who are taking such good care of their 
kids!!  :)
