Ok, DH things cloth diapers are cool, but he's not nearly as into it as I am. I think he's getting tired of listening to me discuss the respective merits pf SS SPs and FCBs. Well, for 2 days now, I've been eyeing a pair of longies and a soaker. I'd finally decided that I couldn't take it any more, so when he got home from work today, I said, "Hey, honey, can you come here a second? I want to show you something I want to buy." "Just buy it." "Don't you even want to know what it is?" "No." Do you realize the mischief I can get into now?!

i make 100% of the family money so dh doesnt say anything. I have to be self-controlling
When putting diaper laundry away the other day i made a joke about C needing a new diaper and dh did roll his eyes. but i've trained him not to question me

Well, I'm about 90% sure that I'm getting a BJM soaker and pair of longies, but I'm still perusing. I'd really like some merino longies.

Nope. But he trusts me, and that knowledge keeps me reigned in. I'm sure it's the same for him. Plus, I'm known for being ridiculously cheap, so he just assumes everything I buy is a bargain. :LOL Also, I teach a class at the community college 2 afternoons a week, and we've saved all my income from that, so I think he kind of looks at that as some "mad money."

My dh can often be heard saying... "Well if you like it...buy it!" SO if I didn't have some form of self control we really would be trouble!! I am the money manager around here (I love playing with numbers), it's these darn diapers that have thrown a wrench in my lovely numbers. I think I'm usually asking dh what he thinks when I am looking for someone to talk some sense into me and talk me out of what I am thinking, so his response isn't much help :LOL Perhaps I need to find some work so I can afford some pretty things...
