I babysit a 13 year old boy who has down syndrome.... usually just after school, on days that there is no school, and int he winter when they dont have school , or a delay/ early out....
He likes to eat and she even told me this when we first met ...... But the only things she ever sends for him to eat is like 3 or 4 little chicken nuggets ( that I cook for him ) . After he eats those he is still hungry, if I have some here at the house ( sometimes I buy chicken nuggets, but not alot since my kids only eat them sometimes) ... and I KNOW that he can eat atleast 10 of them ( and also wants a ton of bbq sauce or ketchup) ... he will also eat almost a whole bag of potatoe chips ( actually it takes him 2 days to finish a large bag) ... He will cry and tell me he is sick if he cant eat that much of those things...
I like his mom and we do talk alot when she comes over to get him, and during those conversations I know she has talked about how much he eats at home ...so I know that she knows he needs more that 4 little nuggets....
Even though I like her and she is nice to me.... I know she is one of those women who can tell off a person if she doesnt like what they say ( I know this from stories she has told me about herself) ... She is also the kind that thinks her son can do no wrong ( which explains why he crys and throws fits when he doesnt get his way)
Anyways my point is, we are struggling money wise and I have to plans our meals because we dont have that much to spend on our own food.... let alone a $6 pack of chicken nuggets and a $4 bag of chips twice a week ....
