I may not like the on-line payment system that the school offers to pay for lunch....but I do like seeing what the kids are buying. I mentioned before that Sassy was buying too many snacks....and we spoke to her about it. For the most part, I thought it was resolved.
When I logged in today, I noticed that the snack buying was WAY up. And not only that...she has progressed to buying bottled juices (at $2.50 a pop!). What, are cookies a gateway drug to the harder stuff??
I spoke ....not flipped out as I was accused of in a non published comment... to her about it....and *sigh*. Sassy's "friend" has been asking her to buy snacks for this girl. Um no. If this girl wants snacks....she can buy her own. And this bottled juice "habit" is over. I told her she may buy milk when she brings her lunch. (For some reason this year she hasn't wanted to bring a drink from home or buy milk).
Last week....she spent almost $11 on snacks. That is OVER.
Sassy is upset that she got caught. She knows that crossed the line and abused the privilege. And she now knows that if we have to talk about this again....snack privileges are being removed from her account.
This month has been a heavy "buying" month for both kids, and we didn't really worry about it too much since February was a "light" month. It sort of balanced out. But we can't have $11 a week in snacks!!
I know I am at the beginning of the teen years, but between the attitude, the non-truth telling....it is going to be a long stretch.
