I officially screwed up for the first time tonight.
We had dinner at Claim Jumper and Adam had some pizza, and I dosed him for it. Then, he was still hungry, so I let him have some more. He wanted a cupcake and since it had been some time since he'd eaten the extra pizza, I decided to dose him for the pizza AND the cupcake he hadn't eaten yet.
Now I know why you don't dose preschoolers before eating.
I mean seriously, who's not going to eat a chocolate cupcake? Not my Adam, the little sweet-a-holic that he is.
But as 4 year-olds are often wont to do...he changed his mind. And refused to eat it.
So I had him eat a fruit snack and some smarties to compensate and when we got home 45 minutes later I tested him.
Okay, drink juice!
15 minutes later,
Now I'm begging and pleading for Adam to eat some glucose tabs. Which he is refusing to do.
I get him to drink some orange juice
I test him again...ERROR!
I test him again...486!!!
Yeah, I said WTF too.
I tossed aside the One Touch and got out the Aviva meter and tested him AGAIN.
He refused to eat anything else, but sissy got him to suck on a lollipop while we read him books before bed.
I will be testing a lot tonight....
