-Party + treats full of sugary goodness + WAG-ging (wild-ass-guessing) + not even weighing the food so your child can feel somewhat NORMAL for a change, + using the dexcom to see how it all plays out = ???
For those you you bad at math (like me), the above took place at Elise's school Easter party. Truthfully, the only sugary item was a mini cupcake, but I decided to let Elise have it WITH the icing (I usually scrape it off because her snack at that time is 15g), thinking I could just watch the CGM to see what happens. Of course, the dexcom crapped out on me. Elise ended up in the 300s at lunch, but came back down by her afternoon snack time. Stupid icing.
-If 5:00 is approaching and Elise is helping me make dinner... I need to have a back-up plan. A few weeks ago, we were making waffles, when Elise knocked over the blender, sending the batter all over my kitchen floor. Thankfully, the last time I made waffles, I froze the extras, so I had 1 or 2 left for Elise's meal. Unfortunately, no waffles for Fred or I.
-A low is a great way to get off the phone with a telemarketer. This lady WOULD NOT let me get off the phone, and my nice, polite side has trouble hanging up on people unless they are downright rude to me. I needed to check Elise's BG, and when a 48 popped up, I interrupted to woman to tell her I had to hang up because my child's blood sugar was dangerously low. She started stuttering and said," oh my gosh, yes... please go!" BAM! No more telemarketer! Although this is my preferred method for dealing with those pests.
