Incoming Boys’ Choice superhigh carb dinner: pasta w. processed vegetarian chicken puck/marinara sauce; for vegan option Tuscan bean soup w. raw kale salad on top—boys not likely choose partake this soup, but want yin soup’s yang bread. Also apples. Also aunt drop off box Halloween brownie.
Plan ahead because channel Gary Scheiner. While wait pasta water boil, bolus for 100g CHO. That very conservative estimate for meal total. Probably will be even > 125g. Huge carbs. 6:11PM.
Immediate begin worry water too slow, ask Bubs eat apple while wait.
Water finally boil, then pasta drag feet/cook extra slowly, 6:45PM still too hard. Come on come on come on.
Dinner finally ready 6:55PM. Bubs report not feel low, 45 minutes post huge bolus even though interim only eat 1/2 apple. Holla. Boys very hungry. Pasta, pucks, sauce, apples, water. estimated 100g CHO on estimated dot! Will need more insulin b/c dessert.
Dessert options: aforementioned unexpected Peppermint Patty Halloween brownie vs. Boys’ Choice bakery black & white cookies. Winner=brownies. Because Bigfoot aunt extremely considerate baker, label nutrition info: 34g CHO/brownie. 2u more.

8:20PM I feel low. 103
8:30PM (Do you still feel low?) Yes. 90. Bedtime.
Think Bubs dropping. Think: snack? But this is the time of night his number usually starts inching up. Think better test again 9PM. Think if we were using that Dexcom, this would be a double arrow down moment.
9PM 102. Think never mind the imaginary Dexcom, he’s leveling off.
Think WE NAILED IT! Think it’s sort of too bad we nailed this disastrous meal so perfectly, because I’d kind of like to stay up all night watching Parenthood and baking banana breads. Then think be careful what you wish for.
9:20PM I’m not asleep. I’m hot. (Do you feel low?) No. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
BIGFOOT: Should we test him?
BIGFOOT SPOUSE: I guess so
BIGFOOT: I know you know how you feel, but you know how they say you might feel hot when you’re low? If you’re feeling hot, we should make sure it’s not because you’re low
BUBS: The peach tree! He should have put it in his own peach tree, not in mine! Ohhhhh. Nooooooo
BFOOT: (whispers) you should test him
BUBS: Peach tree!
BFOOT SPOUSE: He’s talking in his sleep
BUBS: Dad just poked me in the finger!
Nailed it! (Probably.) (Maybe.)
