hubby gave me $$$ but said if i spend a penny on the kids i was going to have to pay him back

so hubby gave me 100 dollars and told me i better spend it on me but he really enphasized me lol he said if he found out i spend a penny on the kids from that that i was supose to pay him back lol he usually gives me money for the kids and for me every weekend but i usualy spend all the money on the kids so since he knows im just going to go spend it on the kids now i have to pay him back if i spend it on them lol so how many of you guys are like me instead of spending the money on you you spendit on kids lol

  • My dh has been on my case about never doing/buying what i want. what he fails to understand is i just want my kids happy and i ALWAYS think of myself last. if he had an extra 100 hed probably tell me the same thing. knowing i couldnt pay him back.

  • We both usually spend it on the kid's or on a family activity. That was very nice of your hubby to make that rule this time so you really would spend it on something nice for yourself.

  • I could easily spend $100 on ME. My kids are so spoiled by grandparents that I'd be fine with it.

  • If my daughter actually NEEDED or wanted something, I would probably spend it on her. But I don't have to worry about my husband giving me money for me. I have to practically squeeze out every cent I get out of him. But, assuming that he DID give me money just for me, I would spend it on me (again IF my daughter didn't need anything). I really need pants and a new pair of shoes, and some bras that fit (I'm like a 34DD/DDD, so really hard to find them). It would be gone really quickly.
