We typically eat dinner around 5:30pm or 6pm and bed by 8:15pm on a school night, but today was hectic and we sat down for dinner out at a restaurant at 6:30pm and ate at 7pm. My son with D orders a good sized adult cheeseburger, side of fries and another side order of mac n cheese. We guessed the carbs at 45, 40 and 45 respectively for a 130 total. I suspect we guessed low but that's our tendency when running late and heading to bed. The above meal is not our norm, maybe once a week. We waited 45 minutes, bolused 30% up front and extended the remainder for 3 hours. I'm expecting a long night with several checks and a correction or two because of the carb count (guess) and food type. Anyway, here's my question(s) ... How does the above scenario strike you? Any comments are welcome! Examples could be ... - What the heck are you thinking giving him a meal like that right before bed? There is no way I would do that. - We would have bolused as follows .... (keeping in mind YDMV) - I see no problem with what you did. We do it all the time. - Or anything else. I'm just reflecting on the meal and my oncoming night and am wondering how other parents handle busy school nights, hungry children and food choices, etc ... Thanks.
