NaBloPoMo - Day 2
Trick or Treat was Saturday night for us. It was fun!
Sweetpea said, "This is so much more fun than I thought it was going to be! I thought it was going to be good, but this is great!"
Here we are before the big night...
Mimi and Gaga came over to our house to pass out treats while we went around the neighborhood.
I forgot to mention in my last post that we decided to give out candy this year. Last year we gave away things like pumpkin erasers, bracelets, vampire fangs, spider bouncy balls.... I just didn't want the candy in the house.
This year we went back to candy. Don't really know why... We gave out Smarties (because we can save the leftovers for lows), m&m's ( we also use these for lows. I know it's not a fast acting sugar but if she's just a little low, m&m's work better for us. The really sugary stuff sends her sky high.), and Reece's PB Cups (because Daddy likes those!).
We trick or treated for an hour. Sweetpea was done and asking to go home.
She came in and dumped her loot in the middle of the floor. Then we sorted it. Honestly, she didn't get a ton and there wasn't too much good stuff in what she got.
She kept the 3 kit kats, 2 packs of Smarties, a bag of chips, and a can of playdough. She ate 2 mini tootsie rolls and a kit kat. That's it.
Her bg was high - but that was due to us giving her free carbs for activity. We just can't seem to get it right. When we don't give her extra carbs, she's low. When we do, she's high. Ugh. Diabetes is just never predictable!
Sweetpea spent the last half of the night handing out candy - which she thought was every bit as fun!
So... it was a success! She got to participate and partake. Within reason. She had a BLAST!
For some unknown reason, other than the fact that D is just a big 'ol pain in the keister, she LOW... ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Daddy was on call and he battled the lows until morning. They went through 3 juice boxes and temp basal decrease of 20%. Who would have thought THAT?!?
Sunday she went to Target and spent her money! She was thrilled to get a remote control puppy! (The cats are not so happy...)
I love Halloween!
