Last Wednesday, Matthew had been running high all day. Mid 200's at every check. Pretty rare for him, but I wasn't too concerned.
That night we went to church and at the end, they passed out cupcakes. Matthew said he wanted to eat his in the car on the way home.
We checked his BG and he was 362.
Not ideal for a cupcake.
But thankfully, Matthew stepped right up and said he didn't mind waiting until the next day. He really wasn't hungry and that was okay.
(((This was where I started thanking the Lord! Matthew's attitude was a huge blessing!)))
What mother wants to deny her kid a cupcake? But should you sometimes? Probably....
So...would you have let him eat the cupcake?
How do you handle those situations where you don't want your child to feel different? Isn't his emotional health as important as his physical health?
A couple months ago, we did tell Matthew to let us know if something is really important to him. On those occasions, we've agreed that if at all possible, we'll let him have "whatever" as long as he doesn't abuse that privilege.
But if this had been one of those times, oh it would have been really hard to let him eat a cupcake with a BG that high!
