The Curious Case of the Missing Money

So while I was pregnant, my sons father and I, though we're not together, started accumulating a small savings fund for him. There was much in there, but I was really happy I had that money. The other day I had to dip into it to buy diapers, and either our math is really bad or over 100 dollars of it is missing. It's gone. All that money I worked to save for when I would need it is just gone.

Now there are a couple theories as to how this money disappeared. The first is that a last month we let a cousin that we don't really know that well or trust stay here with her husband while they were in town. They stayed in the room that money was being stored in.The other theory is much more sad, it is that my dad was the one who took it. My mom has said many times that over the past 20 years she has tried to save money, she has tried putting it in many different places throughout the house, even in a safe, and it always ends up disappearing. My dad has a problem with spending money, and we are always the ones ending up with the unfortunate side of things.

I don't want to think my dad would take this money, but it does seem highly likely. As far as I'm concerned it doesn't really matter how it went missing, what matters is that it's gone, and I can never get it back now.

So sorry to hear it. If you confront someone about it, have witnesses nearby. And, be careful in your approach.

The money was loosely secured as you indicated. The good thing is you are open minded about it, it may well be that your maths is wrong. The best thing is to leave it at that for now.

It is very sad, and I have no plans of confrontation. As I said I don't really care how it went missing, all that matters now is that it is. There is no way to get it back, so I might as well not fret over it and move forward.
