I'm kind of glad it was his present and not the kids. He said he was in the kitchen when the postman came. I'm so mad. The parcel was either something for myself or something bought by me for him or the kids. It had my name on. I hardly ever leave him alone with the kids as it is!!! It was £30 aftershave so not his main present! 😡😡
Isn't the issue that your DH thinks it's ok to open your post, without asking you? Clearly he opened it, and not the kids. I'd hit the roof if anyone in my house opened my post. Both your dc say it was him, and it's really unlikely they'd have the front to do that ( unless they were egged on by him). I think you're treating it very lightly. Does he disrespect you in other ways?
I know this is the nice sparkly Christmas forum and everything but ... I hardly ever leave him alone with the kids as it is!!!
You really need to give the reason for this ^ some thought. Also, my guess is he opened it and is blaming his dc which is wrong on many levels. Lying, showing his dc that lying is ok, lying about them, getting them into trouble, accusing them of lying themselves, opening mail not addressed to him...It all seems like no big deal on the surface but just have a think about it.
He works away Monday to Friday and often weeks / months at a time. I've only just gone back to work so I'm usually always home and I don't socialise much. He's fine to look after the kids he's just never really had too. I open all his post as it's mainly bills or household stuff and obviously if I left it for him it could take a while to be opened. He still shouldn't have done it I agree 😡
I would be absolutely furious about him blaming the children, if he is indeed lying - which it sounds like he is. What kind of adult blatantly lies and blames his own children? That's shocking, unless you think both your childten are telling lies. I would be more concerned about the lies than the gift.
There are so many perfect women here that they never get anything wrong. Their only blemish is not being able to see the funny side of a situation, nor being able to forgive. And getting furious about trivial things.
