I found some gluten-free cinnamon buns right before Christmas and did a little jump for joy in Roots. We usually have cinnamon buns on Christmas morning, and this little find meant that celiac wouldn't get in the way of a family tradition. Although I think I'm going to do something about family traditions being heavily linked with food, but that's another post for another time.

Daniel had 2 on Christmas morning (35 carbs each) and 2 more a couple of weeks ago. This morning he wanted to have the last two. (They've been in the freezer so they are okay!) The buns make his blood sugar go a little high, but not too bad. I didn't want to over bolus him because today was the first day of mid-terms.

As expected, he ranged just over 200. He felt confident about his physics test. He didn't go low in the middle of a test, which is what really worried me.

Most parents make sure their kids get a good night's sleep & a good breakfast before a big test. With diabetes, there's always something else to take into consideration.
