My husband is going to be mad but this is happening

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My husband's cousin is kind of poor. Her husband has a drug trafficking felony so he works under the table and doesn't make much. And she stays home. I completely understand that their situation is their fault but they have two girls age 8.

The girls have begged for an American girl doll since last Christmas. I have heard them begging and she's told me about it but even says she can't get it. I feel guilty because both my girls got an American doll from my nanny and they had never even heard of them before. Last night she told me she tried to save but couldn't get the dolls. I know the girls are going to be heartbroken because that's literally all they asked for.


Anyway... I ordered the dolls last night. I don't want her to know it was me so I just had them mailed to her house under her name in a gift box. My husband is not going to be happy but oh well. I used my spending money

Does he track your account?

i doubt he would notice, men don't notice much.

Quoting Anonymous: I probably won't. Unless he asks. It was almost $400 so it took a good chunk of my blow money.

Quoting suzanneyea:

Why tell him? I buy stuff for my in laws all the time without telling my husband. Especially his dads new wife, he does not like her. But, I give his dad and her gifts without telling my husband.

No :( I didn't think about doing it until last night. Probably Friday

Quoting Anonymous: Will the dolls be there today ? God bless and Merry Christmas



Quoting Anonymous: I know. I wish I could take them over so I could see their faces when they get them but i feel like it's better to just be anon. It's from Santa ;)





Quoting acbbsmama: What a wonderful thing to do. They are going to be so excited.

Lol no. I mean he opens the mail if he gets it. He might not notice just seems like it would be hard not to notice.
