Okay, for those of you who have had toddlers, you know that you have no secrets. For those of you who do not have toddlers, remember that these little people have no inhibition, no reservation and are not yet concerned with social propriety or priorities.
I had the perfect storm for my blood sugars last night. I finally got back to the gym and was able to get through ¾ off my workout. I kept my blood sugars low-ish (70’s) but okay throughout and I kept my basals low for a few hours when I got home. My CGM sensor expired and I replaced it at 10:00pm. My CGM requires a 10 hour warm-up so I was not going to get readings overnight. BS was 107 before bed, and I didn’t wake up until after my wife had gotten a glucose tube or two into me.
I am now late for work and doing my best Dagwood Bumstead to get myself and my son out of the house so that I can get us both where we need to be at a nearly reasonable hour. We get to my son’s school and I am finishing the morning rituals with him, putting his things in his cubby, giving him a hug, etc. when his teacher enters the hallway (we’ll call her Mrs. Jones). My son goes running over to Mrs. Jones and exclaims “Daddy’s LOW!” Clearly, a little confused and not quite sure what she was being handed from toddler speak she repeats back somewhat deliberately “Daddy’s slow?” I intervened. I said “Ummm, that may be true and you’d not be the first teacher to say it but he’s saying “low,” I’m a diabetic and I had some blood sugar issues this morning.” I got an uncomfortable blush and she ushered him into the classroom.
Anyhow – just a fun moment, I thought I’d share… Anyone else “outed” by friends, family, children or others?
