I wonder what was I thinking. difficult child is a member of a youth group at church. Great and good, he needs all the chances to develop good social skills he can get, and friends are good too. They are doing a sleep over tonight, a famine type of deal. Apparently to earn money for some sort of charity (difficult child did not tell me that) and they were supposed to collect donations (which he did not do and did not tell me about). He told his group leader he was going to collect $800! What I find amazing is the guy believed him, and seemed irked when difficult child had no money! How do you believe a 12yr old kid when they say they are collecting that much money? I could see 1 or 2 hundred, but 800! difficult child told me needed money to buy juice. No problem, I gave him some money. The group leader asks me where difficult child's juice is? I looked at him blankly. difficult child was right beside me, and I asked him if he wanted me to go to the store to buy him some juice, he got really irritated with me and said no. I am really glad another adult heard this. I am not sure if he will make the night, and bet he will call to be picked up early tommorrow. I called husband (who was grumpy earlier) and warned him we would probably be getting a phone call. At least HE is not grumpy now! I should have just told him he could not go, but he wanted to go so bad! I really really hope this does not turn into the fiasco it could.
