Yesterday I got one of dhs gifts. He wanted a chair for the living room. So I got one. Well I had no where to put the enormous box. So I set it in the dinning room until later that night.

So my mom, I and DD left and went out to eat. I thought dh was working until 7... but nope.. he got off at 6.

So we came home. My DD was going to sleep over at my moms so it was just me. It was a little after 7 but figured I still had time to hide the box in dds room... the box was not in the dinning room...

I run the the living room and I see dh, sitting in the chair. With a big smile on his face! He looked at me and said 'thanks honey!'

Wtf! I told him to get off the chair and put it back in the damn box lol. He refused! What could I do though? He's an adult... lmao

So I told him that he can't tell anyone he got the chair.. and come Christmas morning we are putting a giant bow on it!

And here I thought... it would be my 3 year old who would be unwrapping gifts... not my dh.

I would tell him that I got it for him for Christmas so he is to either put it back in the box and not touch it again or it's getting returned to the store, same rules as the kids have.

Yea I told him he isn't going to have many gifts under the tree lol. He didn't care. He did this for his birthday gift to. His birthday is next week and he wanted that new Xbox 360 game. I preordered it for the 17th of last month. It came in and he took it out and was playing it when I got home. I think I'm going to hide stuff at my moms from now on.. I gave him hell for that but I guess its my fault lol. I did leave the box just sitting there. :/

Technically, it was your fault not his, you should have hid it as soon as you got it.

She's the one who left it out in plain view, how was he to know that it was a Christmas gift?
