Today while eating lunch, Turtle announced to DH that we left his present at Grandma's. And told him EXACTLY what the present was. I tried to laugh it off and change the subject, but nooooooooo -she had to persist and give him all the details. Sigh.
I knew it was risky having her with me when I made the purchase, but I wasn't planning on getting it when I did. I had hoped she had forgotten about the purchase but obviously she hadn't. DH has been instructed to act surprised when he gets it. I don't know about you, but I really don't want to know in advance what gifts I'm getting.
One year when I was young, my little sister & I went snooping for Christmas gifts. We were successful! Sis was very good at carefully removing the tape so you couldn't tell the tape had been moved. When we "officially" opened our presents, it was such a let down. It just wasn't much fun knowing in advance what was in the box. Plus it was hard looking suitably surprised and happy. I don't know about my sister, but I never peeked into presents early again. It also means that I'm not really bothered by taunts of "I know what you're getting for Christmas!" so don't even try it, Lee :-P
