We, as a lot of others, were at a Super Bowl Party today.
Weekend = free writing.
It's with the same group of friends we 'always' hang out with, friends from the school Bean attends.
They know us, they know her, they 'know' D.
We are comfortable enough with these friends to let Bean (and Bug, for that matter) run amok with all the other kiddos, just finding them from time to time to make sure they haven't burned the house down. ;)
We also know that none of them will OK food for Bean without checking with us and will tattle on Bean if she's found eating something and they aren't sure she was given the OK, tested and dosed for it.
She was ratted out this summer for swiping frosting off of a donut and tonight she was 'caught' eating some chocolate that all of the kids were sharing upstairs. Nothing huge, but little lessons for her to realize that everything that goes in her mouth can have potential consequences and little lessons for our friends to make sure she's safe, which I totally appreciate.
They get D enough for us to be able to let our guard down a bit and enjoy ourselves more than if we were on 'high alert' for the entire event.
Here's what today looked like:
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself...and yes, I realize I'm most likely jinxing myself BIG TIME and Bean might have hell to pay with her BG, but dang if I'm not going to brag a bit on some nice looking hills!
Oh, and in case you are wondering...no, her range isn't really from 80 to 280, we just set Wilma at 280 so she's not alerting so much during school. Bean's real target BG is 80-180, but we're generally OK with low 200s as long as she's not hanging out there for too long.
So, all in all, she stayed in range and that's a huge WIN for us...last minute touchdown or not! ;)
