Tonight Jason is out late due to a business dinner. That means I get to put the kids to bed all by myself. J.J. was a little more tired than usual, but yet fighting it. He was definitely trying to stall. His first request....food.
"Mama, I'm hungry"
"O.K.....lets check your blood. 279...good starting point, no more carbs tonight, what do you want?"
"Cheese sounds good....can you get a cup down?"
He proceeds to climb into his bed with cheese cubes. A few minutes later:
"Mama, I'm thirsty."
"O.K.....come in the bathroom and we'll brush your teeth and get some water."
"But Mama, I don't like the bathroom cups, they make the water taste bad" .....as he proceeds to drink straight from the faucet!!!
"All right, Bud, off to bed....you've stalled long enough."
"You know, Mama....ketones......I think we should check for ketones."
At that... I had to chuckle.....now that's one stalling tactic only a mom of a diabetic child can appreciate!!
