I should probably translate that for you. Nanas are, well, bananas. That one was easy. As for the word "Mãe", that's Mom in Portuguese. One of these days I'll write a post telling you more about this crazy family of mine, but here's the short version... my husband is Portuguese and speaks to Elise only in Portuguese. So her vocab includes a smattering of both languages. Pish are goldfish crackers and that word is a mix between fish and the Portuguese word for fish, which is peixe.
Bananas and goldfish crackers are her snack of choice, and I'm only to happy to give them to her. Except on days like today, when she wakes up with a BG of this:
Which means, all she gets is this:
That is about 3g of carbs worth of nanas and pish. Pretty sad, eh? And that's probably more carbs than she should have with a BG of 191. But she looked at me when she asked for it! With her eyes and everything! I think she even batted her eye lashes too! That's not playing fair.
(Plus history shows she usually starts dropping before dinner, so this should keep her BG in range before I test her again at around 5:15)
I also gave her some cheese so she wouldn't starve. And ignore the time on the scale... stupid Daylight Savings Time!
Just thought I'd share what snack time can look like at our house.
