After that brief minute when my heart skipped a beat or two I noticed that the screen was black because it was "loading game" but the log sheet was really out! He was actually going to fill it out...like with real information! What was going on?
A quick look back on the last twenty-four hours brought immediate understanding. This was not a spontaneous move towards maturity and taking care of his diabetes. This was the result of Mom telling him sternly (I really didn't even yell or completely lose it!) that all log sheets are to be completed on a timely basis with ALL required information provided OR the beloved XBox would be disabled until said son could do as he was asked.
Again, this was not met with exuberance and "Of course, Mom. I apologize for being so slack lately." It was met with teen sized attitude. In our house the attitude is met with relative silence of mouth but exagerated actions. This time, the exagerated actions caused him more problems than he had anticipated.
