All I have to do is mention to my ex husband that I MIGHT get it for her. Then he goes out and buys whatever it is I want her to have before I can and thinks he's one upping me. How sad.

Oh, it does work to my advantage, and ultimately, my daughter's. It's great, really.

How old? That'll come in really handy when she's a teen, if she's not already.

She's 10. And very responsible. I mentioned that I might be getting her a new phone for Xmas. I called her and she was talking on her new phone from Daddy. Isn't that swell? She gets a better phone, and that has many benifits for me, too, communication wise for my dd and i.

I wouldn't see that as necessarily a bad thing because this could work to your advantage. 

Is your DD aware that this is going on?

Yes. She does. But she doesn't abuse it.

Do you frequently tell him what you are getting your daughter just so he rushes out to buy it and it ends up costing you nothing?  How sad.

What's sad is that he is childish enough that this actually works!
