We've been watching more than our fair share of 'Despicable Me' around our house. It seems like the girls get stuck on a couple of movies and they get watched to death. Thankfully, 'Despicable Me' is one that I enjoy watching (or at least hearing in the background!) so I don't mind that it's on the frequently requested list.
One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the girls convince Gru to take them to Super Silly Fun Land and then get him to let them play for the stuffed unicorn. ('It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!') As we all know, those amusement park games are set up to be nearly impossible to win. The girls try and try, even hitting the elusive space ship, but alas, not knocking it over. Then, it's Gru's turn. He pulls out a handy dandy weapon (really need to get me one of those coats!) and destroys the entire game and the little space ship crumbles to pieces. He then proclaims, with a sly grin, "KNOCKED O-VERRR!" Love it!!
I feel like D can be that stupid little space ship sometimes. No matter how well you aim, you miss it. Even if you do hit it, it won't fall over. You have the carb count spot on, you are confident in the ratios, basal rates have been spot on....BUT those BGs just aren't what they are supposed to be.
We have this issue with a certain food combination at the moment.
Bean eats an almond butter sandwich, sans crust (she's never liked peanut butter, even in cookies ~ what's wrong with her!?!), applesauce, and milk every day for lunch at school. It treats her great. Sure, she heads into the low 200s (sometimes high 200s, but not so much anymore with her current ratios) by the time she tests for her after school snack, but part of that is her uncovered cheese that she has when her class is having their snack.
Well, on the weekends, she sometimes wants a similar combination for breakfast: almond butter toast and milk; no applesauce, so you'd think it wouldn't spike her at all. Well, you'd be wrong! We have consistently seen spikes well into the 300s and even low 400s at times!! What the (enter appropriate word here, depending on how high the number is!)?!?! Seriously?
How in the world does her body react pretty well to this meal for lunch but totally spiral out of control when she has it for breakfast? Stupid spaceship!!
It's at these times I wish I had Gru's coat and I could whip out a high powered D weapon and blast the whole 'game' that we are forced to play each day with this crappy disease away!
