difficult child 1 takes his lunch most days and will buy lunch at school once a week on average. Lately, despite reducing his Daytrana patch dosage, I've found that he isn't eating the lunch he brings, and on days I give him lunch money, he's not buying lunch either. He doesn't return the money either. Now I can work around the not eating part... usually he eats a substantial snack when he gets home, especially before going to lacrosse practice. But I'm a little peeved about the money. He asked me to buy something for him online today and offered up about $20 in bills and coins to repay me for it. I know full well that this had to be lunch money saved up because he hasn't been getting an allowance since last summer because of husband's unemployment during the last 6 months, and difficult child 1 has only earned a little bit of spending money here and there from doing odd jobs around the house, and he's promptly spent it on things. I didn't buy him the online item by the way. I'm tempted to just keep this money, to tell you the truth since it wasn't used for the reason I gave it.
